|National Seasonal Temperature Outlook: probabilities for Autumn 2004, issued 17th February 2004|
Mixed outlook for Autumn temperatures
The Bureau's autumn temperature outlook favours above average daytime temperatures over northern and central Queensland, the Top End of the NT, and in western WA. In contrast, there is an increased likelihood of a cooler than average season in parts of southeastern Australia. This outlook pattern is the result of above average temperatures in both the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
