The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has a long-range forecast overview that indicates – in general terms – what Australia can expect for the coming months. And for April through to June, it has shared the below:

  • April to June rainfall is likely to be below median for much of northern tropical Australia.
  • April to June maximum and minimum temperatures are likely to very likely to be above median for almost all of Australia.
  • April to June maximum temperatures are at least 3 times more likely than normal to be unusually high for most of northern Australia and much of eastern New South Wales and Tasmania.
  • April to June minimum temperatures are at least 3 times more likely than normal to be unusually high for much of the east coast and western, northern, and far south-eastern Australia.
  • The long-range forecast is influenced by several factors, including record-warm oceans globally and a weakening El Niño.
