BOM Climate Outlooks August – October 2022

The Bureau of Meteorology have released their latest Climate Outlooks for August through to October with the following overview:

  • August to October rainfall is likely to be above median for most of Australia, but below median for western Tasmania and an area of south-western WA.
  • August to October maximum temperatures are likely to be above median across the tropics and parts of western and southern Australia, but below median for parts of the east and southern interior.
  • Minimum temperatures for August to October are likely to be above median nationwide.
  • The emerging negative Indian Ocean Dipole event, along with warmer than average waters around northern Australia, and a neutral to cool phase of the El Niño–Southern Oscillation, are likely to be influencing this outlook.
