Eastern Australia Optimistic after rains
Friday, February 21, 2020
ECA has continued its golden run in February with continued rainfall in QLD, NSW and VIC. Queensland saw rainfall throughout the eastern half of the state although the intensity of rain was varied. Those who missed out in Queensland last week might get another shot at significant rainfall over the weekend with most models suggesting another interior downpour however the exact location of the storm is disputed. With another significant rainfall event during the week, Northern NSW’s February continued to amaze whilst Eastern Victoria also saw a southerly bring welcome rain. Despite the widespread eastern rain, some parts of the country remain dry, specifically South West NSW, North West Victoria and South Australia. Rain in WA fell significantly in the north of the state however rains remained marginally too far North to significantly effect cropping regions which are still suffering from dryness concerns.
