Mullaley Weekly Forecast

Weekly Updated Forecast, issued February 3rd.

Weather Situation :

Generally fine and remaining warm to hot across the inland parts of the country, which now spreads throughout the country, aside from the far Eastern regions of NSW. We now see a quieter period of weather in most regions, and hot weather is now the focus of the next fortnight up North, whilst it is much colder in the South. A strong upper low is pushing across Southern regions and cold wet and windy weather will begin to clear on the weekend. It becomes warm again next week throughout, as a significant push go moisture comes into QLD from the East, and this moisture will push South and inland, and becomes the main feature of the following weeks weather patterns. Substantial rainfall will develop next week across QLD, with heavy falls likely, and this pushes South into inland regions early next week, and into NSW and Victoria by later next week. Fine elsewhere, and another cold front may bring another cold snap into Victoria, and bring back cold winter like temperatures.

Notes : The climate system is now a weak neutral, and is having no impact on Australia weather. It will now be much drier going forward for the most part, with an El Nino to develop in Spring. Flooding is now easing, and the next drought has already begun for many inland areas. Up in QLD, it will remain wet all summer, with massive floods, and Eastern half NSW will also see storms continuing across summer, and further floods later in summer. Daytime temperatures will be above average, night time temps maybe elevated due to increasing cloud cover, and heatwaves and bushfires are going to return across the summer months, with scorching heat.
