Would you like to switch to a regional version of WOW?

We're partnering with multiple meteorological services around the world to offer a more tailored WOW. Given your location, we thought you might prefer to visit this version of WOW created by The Met Office (the UK's National Weather Service). The link to do so is here: http://wow.metoffice.gov.uk.

Welcome to the Bureau of Meteorology Weather Observations Website

The Bureau of Meteorology has collaborated with the Met Office (the UK's National Weather Service) so Australians may easily lodge and share weather observations, information and photos. Find out more about WOW and read the Bureau's Disclaimer. For official Australian data, forecasts and warnings, go to www.bom.gov.au.

Some example searches: "Melbourne, AU", "-19.33, 146.8" or "Capalaba". The time slider below changes the time period on the view.
