I was looking before to see what was going on and the time..

It annoys me that the BOM national loop uses UTC and the radar as well.

I understand it is necessary because of the time differences in different states.

However l did notice that the national loop runs 2 hrs behind the radar

Radar aays 4.30 to 5 UTC. So a half hour animation

How do you convert UTC to Melbourne time?

The national loop is showing 23.30 to 2.30 UTC. and the day of the month clicks over at 24.00hrs??

So that is 3 hr animation and it is old . 2hrs old in its last frame

Ok l am confused

So good to check what happened a few hours ago l guess.

If someone could elighten me regarding this strange time nomenclature,I would be grateful.

Hi whiskyzulu2.
It is a bit of a pain. But the UTC or Zulu time for Melbourne is plus +10 hours.
But that changes in daylight savings it will be +11 hours. The following convertor changes to AEDT automatically.
Hopefully that is what you where after.

If you want to see what has happened previously you can use this site

Melbournes radar is https://theweatherchaser...m/radar/IDR023-melbourne

You can play around with the time.

This used to be an excellent site but now has become a pay per use. I used to use to upload the radar for storm events for 10 years, but last week this has now become a member login and pay site depending on what you are using it for depends on your fees. But you can still play around without logging in.

Thanks colamit .That is an excellent tutorial. Now l understand
