A WAIT FOR RAIN

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

DE­CENT sum­mer rains are likely to be more than two weeks away, with the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy’s Weekly Trop­i­cal Cli­mate Note show­ing lit­tle ac­tiv­ity around North­ern Aus­tralia. The Mad­den–Julian Os­cil­la­tion, an east­ward mov­ing ‘pulse’ of cloud and rain­fall near the equa­tor that typ­i­cally re­curs ev­ery 30 to 60 days, is un­likely to im­pact Aus­tralia in the com­ing weeks. Mean­time, the In­dian Ocean Dipole and the El Niño–South­ern Os­cil­la­tion (ENSO) are neu­tral.
