Weather outlook offers heatwave reprieve

Wednesday January 23, 2013 - 10:22 EDT

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting cooler than normal temperatures for south-east Australia over the coming months.

The outlook for February to April says warmer than usual temperatures in the Indian and Pacific Oceans will produce cooler days and nights.

The same ocean influences should produce a drier than normal season for the central agricultural regions of north-east New South Wales and South Australia.

There is only a 35 to 40 per cent chance of above-average rainfall for the farming areas.

Normal rainfall patterns are expected across the remainder of south-east Australia.
