The weather bureau’s storm warning

March 7th, 2008 at 10:30pm

Good evening Stuart,

One does have to wonder if the same person is on duty at the weather bureau tonight as was there a few years back when you had the massive hailstorm and the only warning came after the event, and talked about "a chance of small hail".

It's extraordinary the time it takes them to issue storm warnings sometimes…if the activity started at 7:30 and they only issued the alert at 9:59 then there is something seriously wrong. Perhaps the weather channel should have issued their own warnings instead of waiting for the official alert if they have their own on-staff meteorologists and knew there was something happening, as they claimed when you interviewed them.

Enjoy your weekend (and don't get too wet).

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

    I use the Energex Lightning Tracker to check how bad storms are going to be.
    Weather bureau is a bit slack with warnings and the Weather Channel needs to update the storm pages so we can see the size of storms and not just microscopic screens.
    I find the TV maps slow and misleading.
