Significant Factors


The crew lost directional control of the aircraft on the runway after landing due to thunderstorm-related strong wind and reduced visibility in heavy rain.

The crew did not refer to the on-board weather radar during final approach.

The crew was not provided with relevant information regarding the Emerald weather of which BoM and Airservices were aware.

BoM processing of METAR and SPECI information, along with Airservices procedures for passing operational information to flight crew during flight, reduced the likelihood that SPECI reports would be transmitted to the crew.
