Description

Dedicated Weather Watch Radars should be online at all times, withimages updated approximately every 10 minutes, unless there aretechnical difficulties or scheduled maintenance. GeographicalSituation The radar is located 18 km north of the Sydney CBD. TheTerrey Hills site, on the Hornsby plateau at an elevation of 195metres above sea level, gives the radar an excellent view in alldirections. The rough topography of the Great Dividing Rangeslightly compromises the radar's view to the west, but the coverageto the north, east and south is largely unobstructed. Based ondetecting echoes at an altitude of 3,000 metres, the radar coverageextends as far north as Bulahdelah and Scone, west to Mudgee andBathurst and south to Goulburn and Ulladulla. MeteorologicalAspectsThe radar will readily detect thunderstorms and deeprain-bearing systems approaching from any direction, often atgreater range than quoted above. The high sensitivity of the radarwill assist in the detection of drizzle and light shower activityover Sydney, the Central Coast and Blue Mountains, but, as withother radars, the curvature of the Earth may hide these usuallyshallow weather systems at longer range. People in the Newcastle,Hunter Valley and lower Mid North coast are therefore encouraged torefer to the nearer Newcastle radar, those in the Illawarra theWollongong (Appin) radar and users on the Southern Tablelands theCanberra radar. Non-meteorological EchoesIn most cases, processingof the radar signal removes permanent echoes caused by hills,buildings and other solid objects, but sometimes a few slipthrough. These usually show up as small, stationary or erraticallymoving specks, mostly over the higher ground of the Blue Mountains,Southern Highlands and Barrington Tops areas. On cold clear winternights and mornings these echoes may become stronger or increase innumber due to downward refraction of the radar beam. Ships areregularly observed over the sea. These appear as specks or shortarcs (oriented perpendicular to the direction of the radar). Theycan often be tracked moving towards or away from port over a seriesof images. During strong winds and very rough seas, sea clutter maybe visible off the coast out to a range of about 30 km. This seaclutter tends to remain in the same area and can therefore bedistinguished from rain echoes, which generally move with the wind.The Norfolk Island radar has good coverage in most directions buttrees to the north obstruct the radars view. Being a C Band radar,if there are large thunderstorms around, the radar may not be ableto detect accurately the strength of other storms located behindthe closest storms. This may also lead to the underestimation ofthe strength, at times, of very intense isolated storms. Heavy rainover the radar itself will reduce the reliability of the radar inall directions. There may be a tendency to observe areas of falseechoes from the sea surface within approximately 50 kilometres ofthe radar. There is a blind spot of 1 km radius centred on NorfolkIsland Airport. Operational constraints may occasionally limit theavailability of data from this station.
