Spring forecast not looking promising for rain

METEOROLOGISTS have not been able to provide good news for spring as they are predicting a below average season for rainfall.

According to Weatherzone meteorologist Tom Hough, while September had an equal chance of rain as in previous years, expected rainfall into October and November is set to be lower than past averages of 72.2 and 101mm.

Low rainfall is also set to be amplified by warmer than average temperatures in all spring months.

But meteorologists are unable to forecast thunderstorms, meaning there there is still a possibility the coming months could hold rain if storms do happen to roll across the region.

"Certainly going through into spring, there is more of a chance of thunderstorms, although we can't specifically forecast it,” Mr Hough said.
