Graphical Area Forecasts (GAFs)

On 9 November 2017 the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) changed the format of Area Forecasts (ARFORs) from text based to graphical. The new format is known as a Graphical Area Forecast (GAF). The GAF is a combination of graphical and textual information. The graphic is divided into areas that share common weather characteristics which are detailed in an associated table.
