As we enter into July, Adelaide and many parts of South Australia's rainfall deficiencies continue to rise. The same unrelenting high pressure domination continues with just short respite periods. Such a respite period is coming up but falls are expected to be quite light with return of high pressure domination early next week. This is all occurring in early July when normally frontal systems are dominating. Not happening this year and with Adelaide sitting on 148mm and the average to the end of July being 315mm we are getting further and further behind. The record dry of 250mm in 1967 could come under threat here especially if an El-nino pops up as well.
