Climate outlook update October 2015
A special update of the climate outlooks has been released by the Bureau of Meteorology. This is due to a significant shift towards a drier October nation-wide, related to the emerging positive Indian Ocean Dipole reinforcing the strong El Niño. September rainfall was third driest on record for Australia. Very low rainfall has been received over the past 12 months in the southwest of Western Australia, southeast South Australia and most of Victoria.
