Radar, satellite and weather map imagery

Radar and satellite data are integral components of the Bureau's observation network. Mean sea level pressure (MSLP) maps, also sometimes called 'weather maps', are another important tool and, along with satellite images, provide a snapshot of weather patterns at a point in time.

Radar images

Radar images for the most recent 30 minutes are freely available. Radar data are also available via subscription through the Bureau's Registered User Service.

MSLP charts (weather maps)

A range of weather maps including Mean Sea Level Pressure (MSLP) maps are available from weather maps. MSLP charts for the most recent 7 days are available from MSLP Analysis. Older MSLP maps, generally back to 1 December 1999, are available from the online archive.

For maps not available from the archive: webcharts@bom.gov.au (charges may apply).
