Having a rain radar in Brisbane can be of immense help in predicting storms and flooding. The coverage of the Brisbane rain radar is based on the Himawari imagery from a Japanese satellite. This radar is located 53 km west of Brisbane. It provides a general view of rainfall in all sectors, though it has some restrictions on low-level precipitation. For the most accurate forecasts, it is essential to understand the weather patterns in the area before heading out in a car or truck.

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABM) has a Brisbane rain radar that is based at Mt Stapylton, which is south of the city. The weather radar was taken offline on Tuesday night after major problems. It could be offline for a month. This comes after a string of stormy days in south-east Queensland, with heavy rainfall and flash floods. Luckily, the Brisbane rain radar remains up and running.

While Brisbane may have been spared some of the heavy rain, some areas are being hit by a series of severe thunderstorms, and the city of Sydney is under a storm watch. A severe thunderstorm system is moving through central-west and northern NSW and is almost certain to hit southeast Queensland today. It has already poured huge amounts of rain in Sydney – Forbes and Orange both received 6mm of rain within ten minutes. And in Norah Heads, a single rainfall of 13mm has already dumped 50mm of rain in a matter of hours!

On Saturday, temperatures will be at their highest in a week, and there will be a moderate chance of showers. However, on Sunday, the rain will ease off with only 2mm of rain forecast for a top temperature of 25C. Until then, heavy rain will continue in Brisbane. Up to 50mm of rain is expected on Thursday and 60mm on Friday. This is not a small amount of rain, and if you’re planning a trip to Brisbane, make sure to check the weather forecast before heading out.

The Bureau Of Meteorology’s Marburg radar was recently upgraded. It is used to track cloud motion and measure the intensity of rainfall. It uses the Doppler shift technique to measure the intensity of rainfall. It also has a range of 120 kilometres, which allows it to cover more than 60,000 square kilometers – the equivalent to half of South Australia. It does not pick up light rain and is unaffected by changes in air mass or temperature.
