Watheroo Doppler radar online
The Watheroo Doppler radar is up and running with images now available on the Bureau of Meteorology’s website.
The Watheroo radar is the third and final Doppler radars installed part of a $23 million project managed by the Western Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Food, made possible by Royalties for Regions investment.
The Watheroo radar will provide real-time rainfall and wind information updated every six minutes on the Department of Agriculture and Food and the Bureau of Meteorology's websites. This will allow farmers to access real time information on rainfall and wind, and help transform the way they do business. Emergency services operating in the area will also benefit from the real time information available from the radar.
The radars are being built and maintained by the Bureau of Meteorology.
