Page 16 of 20 Katherine Rural Review, Issue 311 be called an El Nio. It is increasing the odds for less rainfall, but not by much. (Keep up-to-date with El Nio at www.bom.gov.au/climate/enso.) Most of the Indian Ocean basin is currently warmer than average, with the warmest anomalies in the southeast, just off Australias west coast. Warm waters in this area could potentially contribute to above average rainfall across northwest Australia, including the Kimberly region, for the coming months. Summary Rainfall across the Top End is likely to be near average to a little above average for the rest of the year. Odds favour above average rainfall for November to December, but this years build-up should be drier than in the last two years. An expanded set of seasonal rainfall outlook maps and tables, including the probabilities of seasonal rainfall exceeding given totals (e.g. chance of receiving at least 200 mm), is available on the "Water and the Land" (WATL) part of the Bureau's website (www.bom.gov.au/watl/rainfall/exceedance.shtml).
