Brisbane Radar

The Bureau of Meteorology constantly monitors all of its radars to detect thunderstorms. Severe Thunderstorm Warnings will be issued if the storms are expected to produce any of the following:

  • Damaging wind gusts (90 km/h or more)
  • Large hail (2cm diameter or more)
  • Very heavy rainfall (conducive to flash flooding)
  • Tornadoes

Note: All thunderstorms generally produce lightning, and many produce gusty winds, brief heavy showers and hail.
