With the wet season in full swing, it’s important for graziers to know where to access the most up-to-date and accurate climate-related information. Graziers know that the impact of a La Niña event varies across the different regions of northern Australia, and while the broader seasonal forecasts predicted an early northern rainfall onset and wetter than average season, some producers were frustrated by the ongoing dry conditions in late spring and early summer.
In this webinar, join Anne Marie Huey (Northern Australia Climate Program) when she discusses and shows:
• the difference between climate and weather,
• explains how weather forecasts are developed,
• leads an interactive session guiding you through the BoM website, and
• which tools are most useful at this time of year (and which aren’t), where to find them and how to assess their reliability and accuracy.
As a beef producer from the Kimberley herself, Anne Marie regularly uses a range of tools to assess information and therefore increase her confidence in weather forecasts. And while these resources are freely available on the BoM website they can be difficult to find and sometimes to interpret if you don’t know where to look.
Join Anne Marie as she helps you get the most out of the weather and seasonal forecasts for your region.
