A further $5 million in State Government funding has since been allocated towards the upgrading of the Bureau of Meteorology's (BoM) Albany and Geraldton radars to Doppler capability.
This forms part of a Coastal Doppler radars upgrade project for the three BoM radars in Albany, Geraldton and Esperance, completed in early 2020.
The Esperance radar upgrade was funded by BoM.
Thanks to these upgrades, WA now has the best Doppler radar coverage in Australia.
