The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) is currently developing a new climate model to improve seasonal forecasts for agriculturalists.
Despite some long dry spells, particularly during April, more than 80 percent of South Australia has ended up with a wetter-than-average autumn, with some of the north doubling their seasonal norm.
