Thanks for that! I think that would have to be my favourite 2 days of radar activity. You can clearly see little eddies swirling off, and the best thing - an EYE! laugh

Data from 2006 is now available. On an initial look it seems quieter than subsequent years, but I am sure there are some interesting loops in there somewhere!

Some storms from around Canberra late in the year :

It definitely would have been quiet at all the SA radars, it was the 2nd driest year on record in Adelaide! But early May there was some decent rain, and the thunderstorms in late December make for some useful viewing.

Data going back to 10th of March 2005 is now online!

Digging a bit deeper into this data, there are a few areas that seem to have impossibly heavy rain, perhaps a calibration issue with the radar, or would it really have been this heavy?

Wow, the first image looks much more legit than the last one. Good job!

For anyone that has been trying to access this for the last few days, and unable to, it is now running again! All the data from the period it was unavailable is however there (it was only a front-end issue).

Please let me know if you have any other issues or queries!

Thanks,

JB.

Can you explain the technical process about how you capture the images?
