THREE MONTH OUTLOOK FOR MAR/APR/MAY:

NCEP's Depiction of the Global Sea Surface Temperature Evolution

The average Indian Ocean Dipole Mode Index for the past week is 0.3 (0.58 standard deviations), the average Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) for the past 90 days is -4.42, the average SOI for the past 30 days is -2.84, and the latest recorded bimonthly Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI) is 1.07. The expected MEI, adjusted by the Indian Ocean Dipole Mode Index and also by recent values of the SOI, for JAN/FEB is 0.65. Such a value of MEI indicates a sea surface temperature distribution that corresponds to a weak El Niño. This suggests:

RAINFALL: There is a slightly enhanced chance that total MAR/APR/MAY rainfall will be below normal in the NORTHERN COUNTRY District, there is a very slightly enhanced chance that rainfall will be above normal in the EAST GIPPSLAND District, but there is little indication as to whether rainfall will be below, near or above normal in other Victorian Districts.

OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES: There is a slightly enhanced chance that average MAR/APR/MAY overnight temperatures will be below normal in the NORTHERN COUNTRY District, there is a very slightly enhanced chance that overnight temperatures will be below normal in the WIMMERA District, but there is little indication as to whether overnight temperatures will be below, near or above normal in other Victorian Districts.

DAYTIME TEMPERATURES: There is a slightly enhanced chance that average MAR/APR/MAY daytime temperatures will be below normal in the WIMMERA and NORTH CENTRAL Districts, there is a very slightly enhanced chance that average MAR/APR/MAY daytime temperatures will be below normal in the WESTERN District, but there is little indication as to whether daytime temperatures will be below, near or above normal in other Victorian Districts.
