According to the Bureau’s first look long-range forecast for January to March, eastern Queensland is anticipated to get more rain than usual, while some regions of West Australia and South Australia will experience drier conditions. Most of the country is likely to have warmer days.
The findings were revealed in Bureau’s first weather prediction for the early next year. Australian Agencies shared results through the Bureau of Meteorology, Australia’s official Twitter page.
In most of the nation, the likelihood of rainfall above or below the median ranges from January to March. Cape York Peninsula and some areas of the Queensland coast are likely to experience above-median rain (around 60% chance). In contrast, the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia’s West Coast, and some remote areas of Western Australia’s Gascoyne, Central West, and South West coasts are more likely to experience below-median rainfall (greater than 60% chance).
Away from much of Victoria, New South Wales, and south-eastern Queensland, it is likely (more than 60% chance) that maximum temperatures in much of Australia will be higher than the median throughout January through March. Eastern New South Wales is likely to experience temperatures below average (more than 60% likelihood).
Except for eastern New South Wales and the areas inland from the Great Australian Bight, where the prognosis is more neutral, January to March minimum temperatures is highly likely (more than 80% chance) to be warmer than the median in almost all of Australia.
This forecast considers the current state and projections for several climate factors, such as La Nia, a favourable SAM, and warm water temperatures around northern Australia.
