Radar Details

Marburg Weather Watch Radar
Queensland
27.6080°S  152.5390°E  372m AMSL

LocationMarburg Radar TypeWSR 74 S Band Typical Availability24 hours

Situated at 370m on the Little Liverpool Range between Marburg and Rosewood and 53 km west of the Brisbane GPO this radar has a good overall view of precipitation in all sectors. However, there is some restriction on detection of low level precipitation in a narrow sector to the west southwest and over the Greater Brisbane Area. It is a fairly sensitive radar and sometimes detects virga (precipitation that does not reach the ground). This may give a false impression of rainfall affecting the area it covers.
