Weather News is the staff journal of the Bureau of Meteorology. This selection of articles from Weather News, ranging in date from the first issue in August 1956 to issue 356 in December 2000, is grouped thematically on history, personal notes (of serving staff), retirement notices, obituaries, observers and volunteers, media and computers.
Former director and honorary archivist Dr Bill Gibbs outlines the history of the journal in his explanatory note to the first Metarch publication, Catalogue of Items in Weather News, Issues No. 1-262, August 1956 - December 1982. The main purpose of Weather News continues to be the communication of news of Bureau activity and development to its staff, widely scattered around Australia.
