The seasonal outlook for autumn is hot and dry, but what is causing it? Both maximum and minimum temperatures look to be above average, especially for central Australia, extending down through inland NSW and western VIC.
Wrapping up a hot and humid summer many will be happy to forget, rain is on its way for most of NSW east of the divide.
Although autumn is on the way, the Bureau of Meteorology has warned the hot weather is likely to continue, with warmer than average temperatures forecast for most of southern and eastern Australia.
