The February 2019 update can be found here.

Each regional rainfall chart displayed on the update highlights:
   * Current season’s monthly rainfall trend (orange line)
   * Last season’s monthly rainfall trend (green line)
   * Average monthly trend over 50 years (black dotted line)
   * 70% range in monthly rainfall over last 50 years (grey shaded zone)
   * 95% range (red dotted line)
   * Rainfall within the 70% range would be considered reflective of a relatively normal seasonal pattern
   * Movements outside the grey 70% range would suggest a drier (below range) or wetter (above range) than normal season
   * Movements outside the 95% range would be considered extreme
