The Bureau of Meteorology has an ever-expanding network of radar around Australia – particularly in the major cities and larger regional towns and cities. In recent years, doppler radars have become the latest types of radar implemented given their ability to track wind changes and boundaries as well as rain fall intensities. Because of their design, they are able to scan at great frequencies with return times of about 6 minutes between radar scans and associated images.

The United States has an extensive nexrad radar network covering a majority of the country.
