New Norfolk weather forecasts introduced

THE Bureau of Meteorology has this week introduced a seven-day forecast for New Norfolk as part of a major upgrading to its services in Tasmania. Parliamentary Secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water, Senator Don Farrell, said the new service had brought towns and regional centres into line with a level of service previously available only in major cities.

“Tasmanians will now see an increase in the number of forecast locations, from six towns to more than 30, and the amount of information available,” Senator Farrell said.“The range of town forecasts will also be extended out to seven days, a new benchmark for most towns.”

Thirteen major centres including New Norfolk now receive seven-day forecasts which include weather, wind speed, temperature, fire danger (during fire season) and UV information. A longer list of smaller towns and regional centres including Tarraleah and Lake St Clair also receive a seven-day forecast, but in a shorter form.

The weather bureau has also expanded its range of district forecasts and has split the former Upper Derwent Valley and Central Plateau district into two parts for forecasting purposes. This means the Upper Derwent Valley will have its own forecast, looking four days ahead.

Despite this improvement to forecasting services, there are still no official weather observations conducted by the Bureau of Meteorology at New Norfolk.
