A Hot And Dry Australian Summer Means Heatwaves And Fire Risk Ahead .
Summer is likely to start off hot and dry, according to the Bureau of Meteorology’s summer outlook, released today. Much of eastern Australia is likely to be hotter and drier than average, driven by the same climate influences that gave us a warmer and drier than average spring.But these patterns will break down over summer, meaning these conditions may ease for some areas in the second half of the season. Despite this, we’re still likely to see more fires, heatwaves, and dust across eastern Australia in the coming months. Rainfall outlook for December 2019.
