About Weatherzone Radar
Distance and latitude/longitude coordinates are displayed when you mouse over the map. The origin for distance measuring is indicated by a red dot and defaults to either your location, if specified and in range, or the location of the radar/the centre of the map. The origin may be changed by clicking elsewhere on the map.

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).
More than a dozen homes have lost their roofs and close to 19,000 properties were left without power after very dangerous thunderstorms tore across south-east Queensland on Sunday afternoon.
Several people including babies have been rescued from Lismore Base Hospital in northern New South Wales after the roof of the maternity ward collapsed.
