A possible rain radar bungle on the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has been brought Neil Breen’s attention this morning. 

Al from Hervey Bay emailed Neil, saying since BOM updated its radar, the Gympie loop constantly shows rain sitting over Rainbow Beach.

“Do you reckon someone at the BOM, when they’re having an Iced VoVo, would go ‘it’s always raining at Rainbow Beach…’,” said Neil.

Storm chaser and “weather guru” Justin Noonan gave Neil a possible explanation.

“Sometimes you get these types of echoes.

“It’s due to strong winds and it creates sea clutter,” he said.
