The Bureau of Meteorology has announced the way they’re doing weather forecasts in NSW and here in the ACT.
Some of the improved services available from 1 September 2010 include:
— 7 day forecasts provided for nearly 70 locations across NSW and the ACT…
— 26 of these locations will receive fully worded, 7 day forecasts that include weather descriptions, wind speed and directions, temperatures, fire danger and UV.
— 68 locations will receive a 7 day, summary forecast, with the weather description and the minimum/maximum temperatures.
— Some district forecast boundaries will be changed, particularly those in southern NSW, to better match the Local Government boundaries.
— Two coastal waters zones will be split into smaller areas to make the marine forecasts more precise for those zones.
Apparently the system will provide more useful information and less donkey work for Meteorologists.
