Outlook The BoM's Climate Outlook presentation has improved, but the forecast hasn't
Thu 29 Aug 2019

The Bureau of Meteorology's first upgraded Climate Outlook was released this afternoon with all the improvements mentioned in this earlier blog. You'll find them when you dig into the detailed rainfall and temperature outlooks. The breakdown into weeks for the first month is a major step forward, while the twice-weekly limited updates needed to keep the weekly forecasts current will be very welcome.

As for today's Outlook which covers the whole of spring, the news is less cheery. A positive Indian Ocean Dipole, cool waters in the Indian Ocean NW of Australia and a neutral El Niño-Southern Oscillation pattern mean that the three-month outlook remains strongly tilted to continuing drier and warmer than normal conditions.

The latest Climate Outlook is always here and you can find archives of them here all the way back to 2000. When I clicked the link to the Outlook video, which always contains additional, useful bits of information, I was directed to the BoM's full Youtube channel containing hundreds of videos. The video is here*, but a direct link would have been much better.

Provisional records set or equalled today

Obvious errors have been corrected, however this is realtime data which has not yet been validated. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1408 EST on 30/08/2019.
