Click here to view an Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) weekly update containing a summary of total and forecast rainfall, recent climatic conditions, water storage levels and availability, irrigation allocations and commodity price movements and the impact of notable weather events on agriculture.

The outlook for April to June 2020 suggests that there is a 75 per cent chance of rainfall totals between 50 and 100 millimetres across parts of far northern and southern Australia, and much of western and eastern Australia.

Rainfall totals in excess of 100mm are likely across parts of the south-western coast, south-eastern Australia and much of Tasmania.

Meanwhile, water storage levels in the Murray-Darling Basin increased, and allocation prices in the Victorian Murray below the Barmah Choke decreased.
