I normally fly up and down the coast quite regularly, they don't normally "practice" just there. We have demarcated areas for that just north of Perth. This is odd. In 16 Year of flying here I have never ever seen this, and I normally check the weather every day.....inc military flights etc.

I suppose it could be Chaff Phage? But seriously, not in that area? I know the areas really well.

I'm not sure a NOTAM would be issued. I don't think there's a lot of traffic out there.
I wonder what the timing is like between yesterday's display and this one. Same time of day?

Hmmm I'm not sure? I thought It was around 15:30 WST (Aust). Just a rough guess though.

But this time of year here the mornings are clear and the cloud builds towards the arvo?

Odd clouds though huh? And similar ones two times in a row in the same place? Hmmmmm?

The thing is, clouds don't show on radar.

The oddest thing though, is that it's still there!

Wouldn't chaff hang around for a few minutes, disperse and then no signal detected? This is still there? I.e on the live radar scan

Sorry yeah, you're right......more "cells" of activity and rain. So is a wiggly rain trail?? (Joke)

I see it disappearing.
Think of it this way: The radar is scanning an upward angle from the station. At a given distance it's hitting a given altitude. That works fine for detecting precipitation because rain falls from the clouds to the surface. You don't care how high the rain is, just that it's falling out of the cloud.

Now, we have a "layer" of chaff that is descending below the scan angle. As it does so it disappears from the scan.

Make sense?

Actually, yes. A "squirt" of wiggly rain.
