128 km Esperance Radar Loop

The Esperance radar will be offline from October 1st 2019 for approximately 16 weeks. This will be necessary to upgrade the radar to Doppler capability, which will lead to better detection of rainfall and hail, and 24-hour uninterrupted operations. We realise that this may be an inconvenience, but unfortunately we can't put a replacement in for this period. Weather warnings and forecasts will still be produced for the Esperance area, and satellite imagery with lightning detection can be used to track storms in the area. This upgrade is being funded by the Bureau of Meteorology.
