A drier than normal start to 2015 is considered likely for most of Western Australia and an area stretching from northern and central Queensland to the southern Northern Territory and northern South Australia.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s latest three month seasonal climate outlook rates the chances of a wetter or drier January-to March period as roughly equal for the remainder of the country.

Temperature outlooks indicate a warmer than normal start to 2015, with the January to March outlooks for both daytime and night-time temperatures above normal across most of most of Australia.

Climate influences include near-El Niño conditions in the tropical Pacific, a warm Indian Ocean basin and warmer than normal waters to the southeast of Australia.
