The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government.

The Bureau contributes to national social, economic, cultural and environmental goals by providing observational, meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic services and by undertaking research into science and environment related issues in support of its operations and services.

You can subscribe to receive all sorts of information from the BOM.

We produce a newsletter enGauge, which provides water, climate and environmental information programme news, and is emailed up to 6 times per year.

Or perhaps you’re interested in media releases (national and state-based), programme updates (reports, events or major developments) or product notices (climate, water and environment outlooks, commentary and new services).
