A new way to look at the weather

The Bureau of Meteorology has released a full suite of MetEye services, combining the most popular elements of the Bureau’s website in one convenient location, for easy to access, real-time weather information. MetEye is a graphical forecasting viewer that brings together seven day forecasts, satellite and radar imagery and near real-time weather data such as temperature, rainfall, cloud cover, humidity and wind speed. Forecasts are presented in a graphical map, showing forecast rainfall and temperature in colour bands which can be ‘played’ as a seven-day animation. While warnings continue to be issued on the Bureau’s official warning pages, MetEye displays significant weather such as thunderstorms, tropical cyclones, rainfall, fog and frost – all the diversity of our weather. Emergency services are be able to use real-time river observations updated every six to nine minutes, useful in operational planning. This information can indicate where a river is rising, and whether the river is at minor, moderate or major flood level. MetEye is part of the Next Generation Forecast and Warning System (NexGen) rolled out nationally. This new forecasting system represents a major investment in improving the services the Bureau provides to the Australian public. Go to Meteye for further information.
