    Issue Notes

    The hemispheric long wave pattern has remained stable in recent weeks. There are four main troughs. Currently the most significant troughs are near the longitudes of South Africa, the southwest Indian Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and the south Pacific.

    Summary:

    Over southern and eastern Australia the cold front events with potential to bring widespread rain are now expected about 10 December to 14 December, 14 December to 18 December, and 20 December to 24 December. Rain events originating in the tropics and moving south are possible about 3 December to 7 December, 23 December to 27 December, and 29 December to 2 January. Over Western Australia the strongest cold fronts should occur about 10 December to 14 December, 20 December to 24 December, and 28 December to 1 January.

    Forecast Explanation

    This forecast is produced by a multi-model ensemble consisting of dynamical atmospheric models, which are forced by the latest observed atmosphere, ocean, land and ice conditions. The models are designed to simulate features of the real atmosphere, including the daily movement of long and short wave patterns in the Southern Hemisphere.

    The future probability of rain in each district is estimated using output from the multi-model ensemble, combined with historical information about the difference between the model forecasts and observed rainfall.

    In this deterministic framework the skill of the forecast tends to decrease with time, however the forecasts are updated daily to provide the latest estimates of rainfall probability out to 28 days.

    Issue Notes - Issued Nov 23

    ENSO status: La Niña. IOD status: Neutral, returned from negative phase this month. SAM status: Positive, it is forecast to be mostly positive until at least December. The El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is currently neutral. However, Over the past few months, sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean have continued to cool. This oceanic cooling has also been accompanied by a response in the atmosphere, which has included trade winds strengthening over the central and western Pacific Ocean in the last few weeks. Both the atmosphere and the ocean are now showing clear signs of La Niña pattern and all forecast models suggest that this trend will continue during December and January. Four of seven models continue the event until February and only one through until March. La Niña typically brings above average rainfall to much of Australia, particularly the north and east. The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is currently neutral, it returned from a negative phasein winter and early spring. While the IOD has returned to neutral, the abnormally warm oceans to the northwest of Australia, will take a month or two to cool, bringing cooler daytime temperatures to southern Australia for another month or so. As such, average to above average rainfall is predicted across much of the country for the remainder of spring and summer. Heavy rainfall events are also more likely during La Niña years, due the abundant moisture it feeds into Australia.
