Unfortunately, the Bureau of Meteorology has piped up to crush our dreams once again with their long-range forecast for 2022-2023.
The forecast tries to predict the kind of weather patterns we’re going to see between now and April of next year and it’s not looking great. In Australia, this period is the “peak time” for extreme weather events, including floods, cyclones, heatwaves, bushfires, and severe thunderstorms.
The report notes that Australia can expect “an increased risk of widespread flooding” in eastern and northern parts of the country, an increased chance of tropical cyclones, and a “normal” risk of severe thunderstorms.
In addition, they note that bushfires, grassfires, and heatwaves are expected in other parts of the country while the south, in particular, will be very humid.
To break that down a little bit more, the BOM’s recently released climate outlook overview states that, in the coming weeks, it’s “at least moderately likely” that eastern Australia, the north, and the inland Northern Territory, will see “above median rainfall”. Most of Western Australia however will see below median rainfall during the same period.
From November through to January, rainfall is likely to be “above median” in eastern Australia, while temperatures are expected to be hotter than median in Tasmania, Western Australia, and the northern tropical coast. Southern Queensland and New South Wales are however expected to be colder during this time.
The BOM is predicting a “greater than 73% chance” of at least 11 tropical cyclones between now and April, which is roughly the average for this time of year. The cyclone season is expected to start earlier this year, they predict.
In terms of fires, it’s expected that NSW, VIC, and QLD can relax this season, while central NT and northern WA will need to keep an eye out.
“We may not have extreme heat days compared to some recent years”, they state, although tempering this with the warning that heatwaves may last longer, be warmer overnight, and be more humid, especially in the south.
