A drier than average three months is likely for large parts of the country, extending from the northern NT, through Queensland and NSW, and into Victoria and southeast SA. Western and central WA and southeast Tasmania are also likely to have a drier three months.
For the month of July, the drier than average signal is confined to western WA, and central to eastern NSW extending up into southern Queensland. The rest of the country has roughly equal chances of a wetter or drier than average month.
While the dry signal is widespread across the tropical north, much of this region typically receives little or no rainfall at this time of year.
