Weird, wild and wonderful weather celebrated in BOM's 2019 Calendar
The annual BOM Australian Weather Calendar for 2019 has been launched, with 13 images that reveal amazing weather captured around the country.
The Bureau's CEO and Director of Meteorology Dr. Andrew Johnson said hundreds of photographs are submitted each year.
"The calendar's arrival is always eagerly awaited by weather watchers, while for those behind the camera, having one of your shots included is a real feather in your photographic cap," Dr Johnson said.
"Since 1983 the Australian Weather Calendar has provided an annual glimpse of the best in Australian photography and a showcase of how nature can be captured and shared.
"The 2019 edition features images from every state and the Northern Territory, plus one from Davis Station in the frozen Antarctic, so it's geographically as well as visually diverse."
More than 1.4 million copies of the Australian Weather Calendar have been sold since its inception and this year another 65,000 are set to be added to that total, with orders expected from up to 80 countries.
Published jointly by the Bureau of Meteorology and the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS), the weather calendar can be ordered from the Bureau's online shop at shop.bom.gov.au or purchased at selected Bureau offices. You can see all 13 images in the gallery above.
