The July 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

The map below shows the seperation of the regional zones.
