Below is the Bureau of Meteorology’s Winter (June – August) climate outlook overview
- Winter (June to August) rainfall likely to be below average over the southern half of mainland Australia.
- A drier than average June is likely over much of WA, SA and western parts of NSW and Victoria.
- Winter daytime temperatures are likely to be warmer than average for the southern half of Australia and the tip of Cape York Peninsula.
- Night-time temperatures during winter are likely to be warmer than average for southern WA, parts of southeast Australia, and the tip of Cape York Peninsula.
- This outlook is influenced by warmer than average tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures and a cooler eastern Indian Ocean (see the Climate Influences section for more detail).
