Autumn days are expected to be warmer than average across Northern Australia, Tasmania and far western parts of Western Australia but cooler in parts of New South Wales.
Above-average minimum temperatures will continue across most of the country, with the exception of central and western South Australia and south-eastern Western Australia.
Daytime temperatures are expected to be above average for the far north and south as well as the far west.
The rest of Australia will experience neutral temperatures, except a chance of below average maximum temperatures for inland New South Wales.
The risk of widespread flooding is highest for eastern and northern Australia, where soils and catchments are already wet and are likely to see above average rainfall.
