Local climate tool
The local climate tool allows you to assess the effect of El Niño, La Niña and positive and negative IOD on rainfall in your area.
The tool gives you access to locations across Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and southern NSW that you can interrogate. An information panel and the circles with a question mark in them next to the objects provide you with more information to help you understand what the tool is saying.
Each of the climate drivers (El Niño, La Niña, positive IOD and negative IOD) and the months of the year are available for you to select.
The local climate tool has been produced as part of the GRDC ‘Using Seasonal Forecasts’ extension project, a collaboration between the GRDC, Agriculture Victoria, SARDI and Federation University.
