The Bureau of Meteorology’s seasonal rainfall outlook for the December 2013 to February 2014 period indicates that drier than average conditions are more likely for much of north-east Australia, while wetter than average conditions are more likely for Tasmania and across large parts of Western Australia.
The temperature outlook indicates that warmer days and nights are more likely over most of eastern Australia and cooler daytime temperatures are more likely over southwest Western Australia (Bureau of Meteorology, Seasonal Outlook, 27 November 2013).
