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 www.bom.gov.au/marine/

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.
