Satellite weather is a method of monitoring the temperature, humidity and rainfall of a particular location using a satellite. It is a useful tool for scientists, meteorologists and researchers because it provides accurate data that can be used to make forecasts and track storms.
We use the records from 2 weather stations near Brisbane to estimate its climate and temperature history. These records are corrected for the elevation difference between the station and Brisbane and the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis.
The next two weeks in Brisbane are looking a bit more like an arctic cruise than the usual sweltering summertime affair. The average daytime maximum temperature is likely to be in the low thirties with the lowest on the horizon and the highest in the late hours of the night. A little more rain is in the offing on the way albeit in a low humoured form. In the long term the weather may not be as bad as some of its more intrepid visitors suggest. The etiquette is to be ready for the ride and enjoy it while you can. You can check out the forecast in detail at your beck and call or pop into your nearest Bureau of Meteorology office. You can also view a wide range of information on your computer screen using the Bureau’s website. Alternatively you can download a free desktop app or check out one of the many mobile apps for your smartphone. The best part is that you won’t have to leave your house, even if the blizzard decides to make an early morning visit. The Bureau’s website is open from 7am to 9pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
Severe Weather Alerts
If you live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, you can register to receive free severe weather alerts from satellite weather brisbane. These alerts are issued only if the Bureau of Meteorology issues a severe weather warning for the Brisbane Local Government Area, so you can plan ahead and prepare for any threatening weather.
You can also register to receive weather updates via SMS, email and voice messages, so you can be informed if severe weather is in the area. You can also download the Weatherzone app to your mobile device to receive push notifications during severe weather events.
Sydney has battled potentially record-breaking temperatures today, while parts of Victoria and South Australia will experience hotter than normal conditions. Severe thunderstorms are forecast across southern and eastern Australia in the next few days, bringing heavy rain and damaging winds.
A heatwave is set to rip across southern Australia in coming days, with scorching temperatures expected to climb to more than 40 degrees in some areas. The Bureau of Meteorology warns the sweltering weather will continue over the weekend, with one state preparing for “supercell storms”.
Brisbane City Council provides a free weather alert service which alerts residents to severe storms and other hazards. Sign up for this service now and stay safe!
The Brisbane City Council severe weather alert service is powered by Weatherzone. You can register for free and be notified via text message, email or phone if severe weather is predicted to hit the city.
Weatherzone also offers a range of other services and products to help you plan your days and keep you safer on the road, at home and online. The website is easy to navigate and contains a wide variety of useful information.
Depending on the forecast, the Brisbane City Council severe weather alerts may be delivered by SMS, email or voice message, or you can use the Weatherzone app to receive push notifications. You can also subscribe to receive alerts for other cities in Australia, so you don’t miss anything.
A tropical cyclone is expected to make landfall on the western coast of Queensland this weekend, bringing heavy rain and winds to northwest and central Queensland. The tropical system has been building since the end of December and is forecast to intensify in the coming days, putting the region at risk for flooding, road closures and power outages.
Satellite weather brisbane provides rainfall forecasts in the form of an ensemble of dynamical model output, based on the latest observations and forcing from ocean, land and ice conditions. The multi-model system is a technological marvel, and can provide the latest rainfall probability for up to 28 days into the future. The most accurate forecasts are derived from a combination of the ensemble output, model skill and historical data. Located on an isolated hill about 150m above mean sea level just east of Beenleigh the site is ideal for low-level Doppler echoes and provides excellent coverage of the Brisbane area.
The newest and coolest feature is the ability to track weather events in real-time. Watch the video below to learn more about this cool technology!
Weather satellites detect heat energy (infrared) and display it in an image that depicts objects(clouds, water or land surfaces) based on their temperature. This allows us to make accurate predictions about the temperature at a location. The current wind forecast at a particular location is shown in yellow “barbs” that represent both wind speed and direction. The temperature scale is displayed to the left of the map in degrees Fahrenheit. Colored dots on the map show observed actual temperatures from professional and private weather stations. The temperature and wind reports are updated every three, six or twelve hours.
Overnight into Tuesday a few clouds are expected but most of the day will be mostly sunny with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in the early afternoon. Temperatures will be above average. The UV index is expected to be high and sun protection is recommended. The forecast is generally accurate but deviations may occur so check again for the latest updates.
