Radar Details

Mornington Island Weather Watch Radar
Queensland
16.6660°S  139.1670°E  7m AMSL

LocationGununa Radar TypeWF 100 C Band Typical Availability24 hours

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.
