The Bureau of Meteorology today issued its monthly and seasonal climate outlooks for April to June 2016.
April to June favours above-average rainfall likely in parts of southern Australia, below average likely in the far north for April to June and Warmer-than-average days and nights likely for much of Australia.
April rainfall is likely to be below average across much of northern Australia and parts of the southeast mainland.
Climate influences include a very warm Indian Ocean, a weakening El Niño and warm sea surface temperatures surrounding much of Australia (see the Climate Influences section).
Monthly and seasonal Climate Outlooks for April to June 2016 are now available.
