It’s been unusually warm for this time of year and it looks set to continue, with the balmy temperature set to continue across the country for the next three months.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, parts of mainland Australia are likely to welcome showers after New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania received the lowest rainfall on record for the start of 2016.
The thing is, it’s unlikely the rain will affect the unseasonably warm weather and nights that have been keeping us awake over the last few weeks.
Speaking to NewsCorp, BOM senior forecaster Neale Fraser said ”We’ve got a rain band coming through ahead of a front but the front itself is not very strong so there won’t be much of an air mass change.”
The Bureau released the forecast for the next three months and noted average daytime temperature is expected to remain warmer than average for the tropical north and parts of Southern Australia.
Most of the country has been extremely dry and in some parts, rainfall is at it’s lowest ever for this month.
BOM is awaiting the end of El Nino, which brings hot and dry conditions and is expecting it’s opposite La Nina but is not sure when it will take over.
