This New South Wales storm tracker displays the fusion of radar, satellite, lightning and surface observations. The image will automatically transition from visible (CH3) to infrared (CH13) satellite imagery during the night period at each location. Lightning icons represent the location of detected lighting, although only a small fraction of actual lightning strokes will be detected and displayed. Arrows represent wind speed and direction observations from ground-based weather stations, with red arrows showing wind gusts >65km/h, while the small coloured dots indicate weather station rainfall measurements over the previous 24 hour period, in millimetres, according to the scale at the bottom. You may hover the mouse over these coloured dots or click for additional weather information. The weather radar reflectivity data, which also follows the colour sequence legend at the bottom, is a composite from multiple Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) weather radar sites. This satellite imagery is originally processed by the BOM from the geostationary satellite Himawari-8 operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency.
