    Issue Notes

    The hemispheric long wave pattern has remained stable in recent weeks. There are five main troughs. Currently the most significant troughs are near the longitudes of the southwest Indian Ocean, eastern Australia, the south Pacific, the southeast Pacific, and the Atlantic Ocean.

    Summary:

    Over southern and eastern Australia the cold front events with potential to bring widespread rain are now expected about 2024-02-21, 2024-03-01 and 2024-03-09. Rain events originating in the tropics and moving south are possible about 2024-02-21, 2024-02-26 and 2024-03-06. Over Western Australia the strongest cold fronts should occur about 2024-02-24, 2024-03-01 and 2024-03-09.

    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 Feb 6

    ENSO status: El Niño, reduced atmospheric effect. IOD status: Neutral, Positive IOD ended. SAM status: Positive, trending neutral. The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is in an El Niño, with all international models indicating this event will continue until about April 2024. Ocean warming has peaked over the central Pacific. The Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) is close to zero over the last 30-60 days, showing that the atmosphere is not reflecting the ocean components. Therefore, Australia is feeling reduced effects from this El Niño event. El Niño only has a limited effect on rainfall during summer, typically drying Far North Qld, increasing rainfall over the Nullarbor, and having little effect elsewhere. El Niño events can make southern Australia slightly drier than normal during Autumn. The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is now back into a neutral phase, after a much later than normal finish to 2023's positive event. Oceans are remaining high near the Horn of Africa, put warming has also occurrednear Jakarta. The IOD will likely stay neutral during Autumn, with low confidence of either a positive or negative phase. The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is currently weakly positive but will be mostly neutral in February and early March. A positive SAM increases easterly winds more likely, increasing rainfall and thunderstorm activity in the east, but reducing it in southern and Western Australia. Rainfall outlooks are predicting mostly drier than normal conditions across Australia during February, likely due to a monsoon retreat. Conditions are forecast to be similiar in March (although another monsoon onset would lead to wetter conditons in the north) while average conditions throughout are expected in April and May.
