Radar Details

Longreach Windfinding and Weather Watch Radar
Queensland
23.4300°S  144.2900°E  200m AMSL

LocationLongreach Airport Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability0000-0915; 1030-1515; 1630-2115; 2230 -0000

This radar has good visibility in all directions with light echoes being detected out to about 100km and stronger echoes out to about 300km. Light rain from mid-level cloud can be "seen" out to about 250km, however, these can sometimes be misleading as the radar often detects virga (precipitation which does not reach the ground).
