Kevin Long has released his Winter Forecast for Central Victoria 2011.  It makes for interesting reading, as always.  

Kevin says that it has been "a unique and incredible wet 12 months we have just endured, the likes of which is unlikely to occur again for 297 years." 

Kevin predicts that this winter we will have below-average rains and above-average frosts.  He also says "  The recent short period of flood conditions cut off very sharply in mid-March, returning us to the dry conditions that dominated the last decade.  I forecast that below-average rainfall will persist throughout most of this decade. 

A rapid decline of the soil moisture can be expected during the rest of this year.  I forecast Central Victoria will average only 50% rainfall for the Winter and Spring seasons of this year. 

Kevin has lots of information about the weather, water resources and climate change on his website if you would like to learn more.
