May 2012

May had a slow start with the radar relatively quiet for the first two weeks, other than the constant spotty beams that have been visible practically all over the east coast.

Then on May 16 from the Sydney or Wollongong radar came this strong circle.  It was difficult to pick which radar it actually came from. With it was an obvious beam from Canberra:

Esperance radar in the southwest was up next two days later with this spotty circle:

Then on May 18 Geraldton came up with a purple circle, while to the north Karratha and Exmouth were also showing beams :

Cairns was up next with an odd beam formation we’ve not seen before:

About beyond the weatherzone

Australia is in the grip of some very strange weather patterns. Massive cyclones, historic flooding, snow and hail out of season, and increasing violent stormcells have become the norm. Could this be due to experimentation? Australia is involved with HAARP, the VFL group, and we have the world's largest ionospheric heater at Exmouth. Australia is the ideal experimentation ground, and we don't even know! Is it possible - are we being conned?

    Do the first 2 weeks of little radar activity coincide with the great weather we all had? Brisbane had clear sky’s for about a week at the start of the month

  2. Hi Hayden
    We have to expect to get some fine weather some of the time, it was beautiful clear skies in the west at that time too. Whether the lack of radar activity has anything to with those times is open to debate, but it certainly seems the radar activity often occurs in conjunction with notable weather systems. Like thismorning’s partial circles from Perth radar – that area has just seen a couple of tornadoes and 140 km winds and there’s more to come in the next few days.
