Are you in the 70% of producers reading their weather forecasts incorrectly? Does the rainfall forecast always seem to ‘get it wrong’?

The Northern Australia Climate Program’s regionally located ‘Climate Mates’ deliver climate and forecasting workshops across Northern Australia. During these workshops, the team discovered that 7/10 producers have been misinterpreting the rainfall forecast for years!

NACP is now offering an online short course, Forecasting for Decision-Making, that has been designed to upskill producers to get the most out of the weather forecasts and read them accurately.

This course covers: El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO); Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD); Madden Julien Oscillation (MJO); and Interpreting the Forecast. One-on-one follow up ensures this information is tailored to your property.

Supported by the Bureau of Meteorology and the UK Met office, this course will give you the knowledge to correctly interpret and use forecasting as a productive tool in decision-making.
