When you’re busy going about life, checking the weather isn’t always front of mind. 

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) is Australia's official weather, climate and water agency.  It’s their job to forecast the weather and let people know when severe weather is on the way.

Make sure you’re covered for the areas you visit most.
