Wind observation maps added to BOM's Weather Observations website

The Bureau of Meteorology advises that Weather Observations Website (WOW) live wind observation maps have been added to

Two links have been added: Live wind maps for major cities and live wind maps for each state.

About the Live wind map interface:

• The live wind maps combine the Bureau's wind readings with readings from third party equipment.
• A slider bar is available at the bottom of the map to visualise wind and weather observations over the past 24 hours.
• The Live wind map interface provides the ability to view historical wind data for each weather station on a 10 or 30 minute basis for any day in the last year.  This is a significant benefit to maritime safety agencies when analysing the weather conditions that may have contributed to an accident.
• Individuals and organisations are encouraged to share their observations on these maps.  The interface provides simple instructions to set this up.

The Bureau has a development pipeline to further improve the interface.
