Over southern and eastern Australia the cold front events with potential to bring widespread rain are now expected about 26 June to 30 June, 10 July to 14 July, and 16 July to 20 July. Rain events originating in the tropics and moving south are possible about 28 June to 2 July, 10 July to 14 July, and 16 July to 20 July.

Forecast Explanation

This forecast is produced by a multi-model ensemble consisting of dynamical atmospheric models, which are forced by the latest observed atmosphere, ocean, land and ice conditions. The models are designed to simulate features of the real atmosphere, including the daily movement of long and short wave patterns in the Southern Hemisphere.

The future probability of rain in each district is estimated using output from the multi-model ensemble, combined with historical information about the difference between the model forecasts and observed rainfall.

In this deterministic framework the skill of the forecast tends to decrease with time, however the forecasts are updated daily to provide the latest estimates of rainfall probability out to 28 days.
