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.
LocationMildura Airport Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability0000-0300; 0430-0900; 1030-1500; 1630-2100; 2230-0000
The Mildura radar has a very good view in all directions as there are no significant geographic features in the area. Its only limitations are those common to all C Band radar, that is that if there are large thunderstorms around, the radar will not be able to detect accurately the strength of storms located behind the closest storms. This will also lead to the underestimation of the strength, at times, of very intense isolated storms. False echoes are sometimes observed very close to the radar especially in stable conditions. Echoes within five or so kilometres of the radar and overhead are poorly resolved as the scanning elevation is too low.
The clean-up is continuing after a severe storm hit the New South Wales North Coast on Sunday afternoon leaving thousands without power and displacing some patients at Lismore Base Hospital.
A clean-up is underway after very dangerous thunderstorms cut across south-east Queensland on Sunday, damaging roofs and cutting power to about 20,000 properties.
Hot, windy weather could pose a danger on the fire ground in South Australia's lower north today, authorities have warned.
