So how's winter going to unravel this year? El Niño? Lake Eyre? The birds that go to it? Some awesome algorithm made by a certain Brisbane hydrologist? We don't exactly at the moment. So guessing time! CFS is currently forecasting a higher pressure anomaly in June, improving over winter to a weak month average low pressure anomaly. And Spring looks good with some strong lower pressure anomalies in the monthly average. These are the corresponding 500hPa height anomalies from CFS. Late winter? Well CanSIPS and NMME are forecasting differently, so don't hold your breath for an accurate answer. One thing's for sure, it will be interesting.
