Changes to Western Australia's District Forecasts

From October 2012 district forecasts in Western Australia will be improved.

Here are some of the changes you will see:

  • Forecasts will extend out to 4 days
  • Forecasts will include a the "weather situation" which describes the weather systems influencing your area for next 4 days
  • Forecasts will include a description of the weather and wind and temperature range
  • Included in each district forecast will be a summary forecast for a couple of towns which will include maximum and minimum temperatures and a general description of the weather
  • Minor changes to some district boundaries to better align with council boundaries and conservation parks. See the map
