The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) has launched its 2020 calendar, capturing some of Australia’s most spectacular weather phenomena under the year’s theme ‘Weather safety for all Australians’.

Now in its 36th year, the calendar is jointly published by BoM and the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS).

Chief Executive of BoM, Andrew Johnson said competition for inclusion in the 2020 year’s edition was highly contested with hundreds of amateur and professional photographers submitting their photos before a final 13 pictures were chosen to go to print.

“I am proud to say that our 2020 calendar includes images from every State and Territory, as well as Antarctica, so we’re covering Australia and beyond, from the tropics to the frozen continent,” Dr Johnson said.

“It features everything from fascinating cloud formations, such as the incredible morning glory cloud above Burketown in northwest Queensland, to an intricate close-up of a frosted leaf near Canberra.

“Every page provides an insight into both the striking visuals and the danger posed by severe weather conditions, so it perfectly fits our weather safety message of ‘Know your weather. Know your risk.’”

The calendar – priced at $15 for the small version, or $17 for the A2 size – can be ordered from the Bureau’s online stop at www.shop.bom.gov.au or at selected BoM offices.
