Spring forecast for Central Victoria by Kevin Long

Kevin LongTHE SPRING FORECAST IN BRIEF: 85% average spring rain … a heightened risk of cold snaps …

I forecast only 85% of average Spring rainfall.  There is also a high risk of several lengthy warm dry periods during Spring.

A strong start to the thunderstorm season can be expected from early October onwards.  Given the present wet catchment conditions and the high risk of floods during late-Spring and early-Summer, it is very important that the water authorities maintain at least 6% empty space in all reservoirs to minimise the risk of flood damage.

Where possible I advise the farmers to make silage early in the harvest season to avoid the high risk of water damaged hay in late-Spring and early-Summer.

There is already 580mm in the Bendigo rain gauge for this year and I now expect to see well over 750mm in it by the end of this year. (330mm of that was dumped on us during January and February).

I hope this information will assist you to develop the best plans for the harvest season ahead. Regards, Kevin.
