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.

There are no permanent echoes associated with the Eucla radar. During Summer, with moderate to heavy sea haze thrown up by the afternoon sea breezes, there may be quite heavy echoes developed up to 50 kilometres out to sea extending from ESE to SW. Any approaching weather, generally from the SW through to the NW, usually has well defined echoes at up to 300 kilometres range. Thunderstorm and rain areas associated with troughs during Spring and Summer are quite noticeable and easily tracked. Heavy rain directly over the radar site can cause attenuation of all signals. Path attenuation can also occur when the radar beam passes through intense rainfall, with the returned signals from cells further along that path reduced.
The Southwest Land Division is starting spring as winter ended, wet, helping grain crops recover after a drier-than-normal winter The Southwest Land Division dried out during August then picked up reasonable rain at the end of the month and is about to get spring off to a wet start, giving grain farmers some hope.
Broadacre crop growers in the Mallee region of South Australia and Victoria could be able to minimise losses from severe frost if they get more decent rain.
The latest bushfire outlook has warned of a heightened risk of fires across South Australia this summer.
