Significantly less rainfall has fallen this May across coastal Queensland, although there were patches of high totals in the northern parts.
While some will argue winter does not really start until the solstice, for those who go by the calendar, June 1 marks the beginning of the season.
Parts of drought-stricken central-west Queensland have received their best rain in three years.
