Dismal outlook from the BOM for SE Australia including SA for winter. This is absolutely incredible after such a dry hot start to the year. Adelaide is sitting around 50% of average rainfall to the end of May and a whopping 85mm below average already. Had it not been for a rather freakish isolated rain event in Mid May it would even be worse. Last June was absolutely appalling and it appears it may repeat again. How is all this happening with no EL-NINO and no IOD trend? Total madness. I hope something changes or they are wrong!!

I remember hearing a talk at the Mt Gambier weather station the bOM has near the airport almost a decade ago. The fella there said the observations had been that everything is shifting further south, with most of the rain bands that used to intersect with the southern part of our state now falling in the ocean.

So.. have a look at what exists a couple hundred k's north, that's what we will be getting more of as time progresses.
I wish Mt Lofty was more lofty, another 2km or so would suffice.
