Australia Week 2-4 Outlook

Highlight: Mostly a very dry climate. Charts of the day: A dry 15-day forecast across Australia Discussion: A large area of heavy convection is north and northwest of Australia. However, the subsidence south of that large mass of thunderstorms is causing a dry climate in Australia. The GFS ENS 15-day percent of normal rainfall forecast across Australia is very dry. Week 2 Ahead: July 28-August 3, 2019: Most of Australia is much warmer than normal into early August. A dry climate continues to dominate. A cold front may bring showers to Western Australia during the period. Week 3 Ahead: August 4-10, 2019: The warmer and drier than normal pattern largely remains intact. Southwest Australia is affected by frontal systems therefore cooler. Week 4 Ahead: August 11-17, 2019: Not as warm with the focus of cooler weather on South-central Australia. The northern continent is dry while showers affect each coast.
