Above average temperatures likely to continue

The April to June outlooks, released on 14 March, show warmer than average days and nights are likely for Victoria with a drier three months favoured for parts of the centre and north.

The rainfall outlook shows roughly equal chances for a drier or wetter than average three months ahead for most of the State. However, parts of central and northern Victoria are likely to be drier than average.



Both daytime and overnight temperatures are very likely (greater than 80% chance) to be above average across almost all of the State. This follows on from Victoria's warmest summer on record.




The outlook is being influenced by higher than normal atmospheric pressure that is likely to remain over the Tasman Sea. This may deflect some rain bearing fronts to our south. In addition to the natural drivers such as the El Niño–Southern Oscillation and the Indian Ocean Dipole, Australian climate patterns are being influenced by the long-term increasing trend in global air and ocean temperatures.
