  • The November to January climate outlook, issued 25 October 2018, indicates large parts of Australia are likely to be drier than average.
  • November, in particular, is likely to be drier than average in many areas. However, areas to the east of the Great Dividing Range show no strong indication of either a wetter or drier month.
  • November to January days are very likely to be warmer than average for most of Australia. Nights are also likely to be warmer than average, except for areas surrounding the Great Australian Bight.
  • A drier and warmer than average three months would mean a low chance of recovery for drought-affected areas of eastern Australia.
  • Current observations and model outlooks indicate the chance of El Niño has increased and a positive Indian Ocean Dipole is likely underway. See the Climate Influences section for more information.
