What's changed?

To help you familiarise yourself with the new Homepage layout, we've provided the following tips to get you started.

Where can I find current warnings?

'Current Warnings' remain in their original position at the top of the Homepage. Each State has a link to access localised events – with details instantly available by clicking on a particular State.

Where can I find the daily forecast and latest weather?

The Daily Forecast and Latest Weather retain their prominence but now run across the page rather than down the page. We have consolidated the information for each capital city, added minimum daily temperatures, and increased the font for the current temperatures.
