Rainfall forecasts for the Northern Territory

Rainfall ranges – Bureau of Meteorology

Rainfall ranges compare current rainfall with past values for a station, and graphically show a range of scenarios for the future.

Scenarios are not forecasts—they are simply a range of possible values based on long-term rainfall records, with no one scenario favoured over another.

Seasonal rainfall outlook, Northern Territory – Bureau of Meteorology

The Bureau's seasonal outlooks are general statements about the probability or risk of wetter or drier than average weather over a three-month period.

The outlooks are based on the statistics of chance (the odds) taken from Australian rainfall/temperatures and sea surface temperature records for the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans. They are not, however, categorical predictions about future rainfall, and they are not about rainfall within individual months of the three-month outlook period.

The temperature outlooks are for the average maximum and minimum temperatures for the entire three-month outlook period.
