A very dry start to 2018
Rainfall since the beginning of the year is much lower than usual for most of Victoria.

January rainfall was mixed; monthly totals were average to above average in the central and eastern Victoria, and average to below average in the west. February rainfall was below average (decile ranges 2-3) to very much below average (decile range 1) across large parts of central and north-western Victoria. Month-to-date rainfall for March has been very low with most of the state receiving less than 20% of its typical rainfall for the first 14 days of March. 

Neutral rainfall outlook for April-June 

The first-look Climate outlooks for April to June , issued Thursday 15 March, shows a wetter than average three months is likely for parts of East Gippsland but elsewhere the chances of above average rainfall are close to fifty-fifty. At the same time, southern parts of Victoria are likely to have higher than average maximum temperatures. There is no shift in the odds towards higher or lower than average maximum temperatures in the north. However, nights are likely to be warmer than average across the whole state, with the highest chance (>80%) in the southwest.

The one-month outlook for April shows above average rainfall is likely for much of Gippsland, along with slightly increased chances in the southwest.

La Niña has ended; ENSO neutral conditions return
The weak and short-lived 2017-18 La Niña has ended, and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is now neutral. Most international models show that ENSO neutral is the most likely scenario through the autumn and into winter. However, model accuracy during autumn is lower than at other times of the year. ENSO neutral does not automatically mean near-average rainfall for Victoria; the chance of widespread extremes is reduced, and other climate drivers can have greater influence.

A weak La Niña will typically have less influence on Australian rainfall than a strong event. The 2017-18 summer rainfall outlook, issued 30 November 2017, showed near equal chances of a wetter or drier than average season for much of Victoria (and most of eastern Australia), despite La Niña conditions in place from December 2017.
