A western Victorian radar

Post  Malleefarmer on Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:10 pm

I reckon we should start a petiton to get a permanant western Victorian radar. The gap between the Mildura and Mt Gambier radar is too great and the fact that the Mt Gambier radar has terrible coverage to the NW makes seeing rainfall very difficult. A permanent radar somewhere about rainbow would fill in the gap very nicley. What do you all think???

I'm with you mate. It would make things nice, and then I could see thunderstorms more easily moving southeast during the Summer time from the Grampians too.

This stuff coming from the WSW atm, the radars are useless to me. Cannot see a thing with them even though there are some beefy shower around. Your right too Jake places like Ballarat could be very well served by being able to see storms apraching from the NW.

Yeah, it's a strange one that radar hole. Basically it's centered right over the township of Donald. They get no radar coverage at all. The eastern Grampians through Charlton to Kerang get next to no coverage being situated right on the 256km limits of Mount Gambier, Mildura, Melbourne and Yarrawonga. It must be very frustrating not knowing if rain is coming, where it is coming from, the severity of storms and if they are likely to hit etc.
