Mornington Island radar has a good view of the surrounding area - mostly the Gulf of Carpentaria and low lying coastal areas of the Gulf country. Sea-breeze convergence lines can return false echoes (anomalous propagation), as can strong temperature inversions in the lower levels of the atmosphere. Path attenuation also occurs when the radar beam passes through an intense thunderstorm cell; the returned signal from cells further along that path will be reduced. Apart from these features, the radar performs well and gives a reasonably accurate representation of rainfall intensity.
The Federal Government decision to shut down the Barkly region weather radar station has led to a public meeting due to be held tomorrow at 5pm in Tennant Creek.
After the wettest June in 72 years of records at Cairns, July's monthly rain was slightly below average, recording 25mm compared to 178mm the month before.
