Around Australia Forecast Goes Live

This morning our forecast system for all capital cities in Australia went live . This is so visitors to Sydney Star Gazers who lives in other areas of the country will have an idea on what the observing weather will be like in their respective areas.

The new chart as shown below does not contain the forecast for Sydney as we are are keeping the two Sydney charts in their separate current  formats. The new chart will show the forecasts over a 13 hour period for the cities of Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne  and Perth.

The chart was modified this afternoon to show it’s final format where a cloud percentage is used for each time on the chart. If there is a difference in the cloud percentages, this caters for cloud in close proximity to the city which may effect the city if there are changes in wind speed or direction. You may also experience different cloud weather based on which side of the city you are located.

As you can see below, the forecast for tonight …… Monday 4th October…. shows that the best night for astronomers to do observing tonight are in the areas of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne  and Perth.

You will need to look at the other 2 charts for Sydney’s forecast.
