Australian Rain Radars on Google Maps

BOMMap is an Australian weather map that allows users to view animations of the latest radar images from Australia's Bureau of Meteorology.

The initial view of BOMMap shows where it is currently raining in Australia and therefore where radar animations are also currently available to view on the map. Users just need to select one of the displayed map markers to view the latest radar animation from that location.

The creator of BOMMap has also set up a subReddit where users can submit suggestions and possible improvements to the map.

Thanks for the write up on BOMMap! Just wanted to clarify the radars available on the Australia map are not indicative of where it is raining, they are the ones that are available for viewing.
