7 ways to plan 7 days with the BOM Weather app

Shirt or jumper? Hat or umbrella? Walk or drive? Picnic or movie? Jog or gym? Every day we make choices based on the weather. Here are 7 ways you can get the most out of 'BOM Weather', our new weather app.

1. Get started by downloading BOM Weather from www.bom.gov.au/app/

2. Planning your wardrobe? Check current weather information for your location (GPS roaming too):

  • Current temperature
  • What it actually feels like outside
  • Wind and humidity
  • Chances of rain throughout the day

3. Exercising outdoors? Check the weather forecast throughout the day for the best time for that jog or bike ride:

  • Get 3-hourly updates on temperature, humidity, wind, and the chance of any rain.

4. Washing on the line? Check if the rain’s heading your way with our popular rain radar:

  • Pause the radar loop at any time
  • Zoom in and out easily
