Handy for deciding when to leave work! Our radar images show the location of rain in relation to local features such as the coastline, with different colours used to depict rainfall intensity. For example off-white represents light drizzle, while dark red is used to depict very heavy rain (possibly containing hailstones). There are fifteen levels of rainfall intensity shown - see the colour-coded key below each radar image. The images are in scales of 128 km radius and 256 km radius. State boundaries are indicated, as are abbreviated state and town names. Radar images are normally updated every 10 minutes, however note that there are full and part-time radars. Part-time radars have scheduled daily outages.
