Our June to August climate outlook favours wetter-than-average conditions for parts of Western Australia, but warmer and drier than usual in eastern Australia.

Trading thermometers and theodolites for rifles and gas masks, we’re celebrating the courage and dedication of 18 Bureau meteorologists who joined the Anzac frontline 100 years ago.

To remember and respect the incredible stories of these pioneers for years to come, we’ve restored a wooden honour board. Find out more here: http://bom.is/ba23b0

Our May to July climate outlook favours warmer than average conditions over the tropical north, southeast and far southwest of Australia.

It’s likely to be wetter than normal due to warm Indian Ocean sea surface temperatures. More on what’s ahead here: http://bom.is/co

WATCH: May to July outlook: odds favour wetter than average conditions for the next couple of months, although dry soils mean low streamflows are likely. 

El Niño ALERT raises the likelihood of a drier and warmer late winter and spring. More info: Further detail at http://bom.is/sco

This month marks the 40th Anniversary of cyclone Tracy—the most devastating cyclone in Australian history.

Over coming weeks we're exploring Tracy’s impact on cyclone forecasting and hearing a few first hand experiences—but here’s a scientific look at the event that made a lasting impression to start: http://bom.is/ce5160

Glowing surf's up! Check out this shot captured on Sunday night at Lakes Beach, NSW, by Matthew Ghazawy.

What causes the glow? When waves and currents disturb masses of tiny dinoflagellates, a chemical reaction called bioluminescent occurs http://bom.ws/AIvSa

Fifty years ago today, a significant group of women became some of Australia's first female forecasters on 30 April 1965—following in the footsteps of Barbara Florence Daniel, our first female meteorologist four years earlier.

From the Women’s Auxiliary Australian Air Force during the Second World War to our female leaders of today, including Dr Sue Barrell, Deputy Director Observations and Infrastructure—take a look at a history of women in the Bureau here: http://bom.is/afb0ff

A team of enthusiasts, Pittwater Weather, have joined our Weather Observations Website network!

Boaties in Pittwater, North of Sydney, can now access important weather info from four new weather stations located at Palm Beach (Observation Point), Scotland Island East, Church Point (The Quays Marina) and Mona Vale. With three sites to come, view recent additions here: http://bom.is/wow

Well done to all involved in this excellent initiative!

From 10-hourly black and white radar images in 1974 to sophisticated satellite images, with 10-minute updates expected next year—cyclone forecasting has come a long way since cyclone Tracy four decades ago.
