Outlook Late start to NT and QLD wet season likely. Fri 30 Aug 2019 If you live in the northern half of Australia, one of the hottest topics of conversation is when will the wet season start. The last of the Bureau of Meteorology's Northern Rainfall Onset Outlooks for the 2019-2020 season was issued yesterday indicating a 70% likelihood that the wet season will have a later start than normal across the Top End and central parts of the NT, Cape York Peninsula and eastern Queensland, and the far north Kimberley in WA. Most of the rest of northern WA is more likely to see an early start, while inland areas of the NT and QLD are more likely to have a slightly later start.

The wet season is defined as starting when 50mm has fallen since 1 September, about the amount needed to stimulate plant growth. The "normal" dates on which the wet season starts are shown on this map, while you can get the detailed Northern Rainfall Onset Outlook here. There's also lots of useful information on this tab.

Outlook Rural Bank's Weather Update to end. Fri 30 Aug 2019 For years, popular weather presenter and meteorologist Jane Bunn in association with the Rural Bank has presented a monthly Weather Update on the Bank's website. Specially tailored for farmers, it featured a good summary of the past month's weather along with the BoM's 3-month climate outlook. What set it apart was that separate videos were available for each state.

The last of the Updates has just been published. This is the NSW link, but other states are in the menu at right. In an email, the Bank says "After a very successful partnership providing monthly weather video summaries for farmers, we are looking at other ways to provide relevant weather information." They will have to be good to beat the quality of the Updates.

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 1407 EST on 31/08/2019.
