Twice every day the Bureau of Meteorology sends out the official weather forecasts for towns and cities across Australia. Here's how we work out what to say in them.
Bushfires across Queensland are fanned by high winds pushed north by a strong low in NSW.
When water turns from a gas into a liquid, it forms droplets. Whether those droplets are dew or rain depends on where the droplet forms.
Adapting to climate change means improving soil health, so it can hold more water (even during droughts).
After the warmest month on record, it looks like Australia will have an El Niño event – which means the drought is likely to continue.
Ants have many tricks to deal with rain – like holding their breath, blocking nest entrances or drinking excess water and releasing it elsewhere by 'communal peeing.' But can they see rain coming?
A weather expert explains where petrichor – that pleasant, earthy scent that accompanies a storm's first raindrops – comes from.
Technology can only go so far in making sense of our vast and intricate atmosphere.
The beauty of rainwater harvesting is that anybody can do it.
Rapidly dropping temperatures, rain and wind are hitting south-eastern Australia, due to a perfect combination of warm seas and low-pressure systems.
It was the Seine’s rise and fall, in response to heavy rain, that inspired our current understanding of river systems.
To answer this question from Fiona, age 6, we need to know some things about clouds and light.
Last year saw plenty of warm weather around the country, but other notable events included dry months in the southeast, some very cold winter nights, and record-warm dry season days in the north.
Climate change can not be managed from a global perspective alone.
The effects of climate change are being strongly felt in the North, but how caribou respond depends on what changes occur.
Georgina, age 5, wants to know why rainbows are round.
Green roofs could play a critical role in helping cities cope with extreme rainfall events in the age of climate change. The roofs essentially suck up stormwater like sponges if designed properly.
New research shows Australian farmers are adapting to climate change, offsetting at least part of a climate change-induced decline.
The record floods of 1954 and 1974 still stand as Lismore's high-water marks. But Tropical Cyclone Debbie delivered her deluge far more abruptly than the rains that triggered those historic floods.
Most people in Australia's southeast are familiar with the stormy weather known as East Coast Lows. But they might not realise how much scientific progress has been made in understanding them.
