It’s been a great couple of days in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. But that may be it for the hot weather. Rain and more rain is forecast over the coming week. And we hate to be a spoiler, but it could be the coming for weeks according to data released from the BoM.

  • January to March rainfall is likely to be above median for parts of eastern Australia (chance of exceeding median is greater than 60%). An area in the eastern Top End of the NT, scattered areas in western WA and western Tasmania are likely to have below median rainfall (chance of exceeding the median is below 40%). The rest of Australia has roughly equal chances of above or below median rainfall (chance of exceeding the median is close to 50%).
  • There is an increased chance of unusually high rainfall (in the top 20% of historical records) for January to March along coastal areas of NSW and parts of Queensland especially in the north (1.5 to 2.5 times the usual chance). In any given outlook period, the chance of unusually high or low rainfall is around 20%. This means that a 40% chance of unusually warm conditions is twice the normal likelihood, while 60% is three times.
  • Past accuracy for January to March rainfall is moderate to high for most of Australia, shifting to low accuracy for central NT extending into WA, eastern NSW, south-west Tasmania and a small patch of western SA.
