Nor­mal sum­mer ahead

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR WEEKLY TV GUIDE -

THE Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy says Queens­land can ex­pect a hot sum­mer with se­vere storms, but with less chance of flood­ing and cy­clones. Trop­i­cal Pa­cific Ocean tem­per­a­tures have gen­er­ally cooled over the past fort­night, eas­ing to­wards neu­tral val­ues (nei­ther El Nino nor La Nina). Other in­di­ca­tors such as the South­ern Os­cil­la­tion In­dex and trop­i­cal cloud pat­terns have re­mained at neu­tral lev­els. Given Septem­ber is the time of year when El Nino events con­sol­i­date, this re­cent cool­ing is con­sid­ered some­what un­usual, hence the risk of an El Nino event re­mains. Queens­land farm­ers will be look­ing for­ward to a more “nor­mal” weather pat­tern over the sum­mer.
