The latest seasonal rainfall outlook May to July 2013, indicates that drier than normal conditions are more likely across south–eastern Australia over the next three months. In contrast, wetter than normal conditions are more likely across most of the north–eastern half of Australia, with the highest probabilities of 70 to 80 per cent in north–east New South Wales and southeast Queensland (Bureau of Meteorology National Seasonal Rainfall Outlook, 23 April 2013).
The latest temperature outlook for the 3–month period, May to July 2013, indicates that warmer days are more likely across much of southern Australia and cooler days are more likely across south–east Queensland and the border region between Northern Territory and Western Australia. Warmer than normal night–time temperatures are more likely across most of the continent during the same period (Bureau of Meteorology National Temperature Outlook, 23 April 2013).
