Oh! No! BOM confirms IOD is negative!

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has officially declared yet another climatic phenomenon likely to add to unrelenting rain on Australia’s east coast.

The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is in a “negative” phase for the second year in a row. Persistently warm seas to the north-west of Western Australia have swung the IOD into a “negative” phase for the second year in a row.

That typically means wetter than normal weather for most of the country, particularly the south-eastern states.

BOM said there was also the chance La Niña could re-form for a third time during spring.

It never rains, it pours.

Poor you Bruce … hope the rain stops soon

Oh no, that’s not good. Poor Australia could do with a break - if it’s not unrelenting rain, it’s catastrophic bush fires :weary:
