LocationYarrawonga Radar TypeWSR 81C C Band Typical Availability24 hours

The Yarrawonga radar has a very good view in all directions and is the primary weather radar for Northern Victoria, which includes the Goulbourn Valley. It should provide useful weather information as far south as Marysville, west to Bendigo and north to Griffith. The advantage of the "C Band" radar is that it is better at detecting smaller drops so therefore performs better in light rain situations. The Yarrawonga radar has a greater ability to resolve thunderstorms in the summer months when echoes are generally larger. Being a "C Band" radar, if there are large thunderstorms in the area, the radar may not be able to determine accurately the strength of additional storms located behind the closest storms. False echoes can be sometimes observed very close to the radar especially in stable conditions. These are normally easy to distinguish because they are usually of the lowest intensity level and are very small and randomly scattered. Echoes within approximately five kilometres of the radar and overhead can be poorly resolved as the scanning elevation is too low.
