Radar Details

Gladstone Weather Watch Radar
Queensland
23.8500°S  151.2670°E  76m AMSL

LocationGladstone Radar TypeWF 44 S Band Typical Availability24 hours

This radar has almost unrestricted views to seawards from the north to the south-southeast. Elsewhere, the topography restricts the ability of the radar to detect only major echoes to the northwest, the south-southwest and the south-southeast. However, strong echoes can be detected as far west as Moura and Theodore. During episodes of fresh to strong winds (>20kt or 38km/h) sea clutter can be seen up to 30km from the coast possibly masking light inshore showers.
