A dry spring ahead has been predicted

The Bureau of Meteorology issued its three-month forecast for August to October last week with Grenfell predicted to have a drier-than-average start to Spring.

According to the data there is only a 30 to 35 percent chance of Weddin Shire receiving more than the average rainfall for the period between August and October.

"The August to October climate outlook, issued 11 July 2019, suggests a drier than average three months is likely," a Bureau of Meteorology climatologist said.

However it is not all bleak news with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a 75 percent chance of Grenfell receiving between 50 to 100mm of rainfall for the start of spring, with an 85 to 100 percent chance of receiving at least 10mm.

On the temperature front the Bureau has predicted that Grenfell has an 85 to 100 percent chance of higher than average maximum temperatures between August and October, however for minimum temperatures are only a 50 to 65 percent chance of minimum temperatures being above average.

"With more cloud-free days and nights expected, there is an increased risk of frost in susceptible areas," the climatologist said.

In the same three months between 1990 and 2012 Grenfell's maximum temperatures ranged between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius and lows were between three and nine degrees Celsius.
