The Moree radar has a good view in most directions to a distance of 100 km. Nearby buildings severely restrict the view in the directions 110 degrees to 127 degrees (approximately east-southeast). Beyond 100 km, the view is limited for directions from the northwest through north to the east-southeast. It should provide useful weather information as far west as Walgett, south to Gunnedah, north to Goondiwindi and east to Delungra. Being a "C Band" radar, if there are large thunderstorms around, the radar will not be able to detect accurately the strength of other storms located behind the closest storms. This will also lead to the underestimation of the strength, at times, of very intense local storms. There is a tendency to observe small areas of false echoes within approximately 50 kilometres of the radar. These are normally easy to recognise because they are usually the lowest intensity level, very small and randomly scattered. Heavy rain over the radar itself will reduce the reliability of the radar in all directions. There is a small blind spot within a few kilometres of Moree Airport.
