BOM outlook: Low chance of drought recovery for eastern Australia in coming months

Despite heavy rain lashing parts of the country in recent weeks the big dry is far from over — and according to the Bureau of Meteorology, the hard times are set to continue.

According to the latest outlook  there is a low chance of recovery for drought affected areas in the coming months, and the financial ramifications are expected to take some time to play out.

Bureau of Meteorology senior climatologist Blair Trewin said the heaviest rain had mostly fallen in places less severely afflicted by the drought.

"If we look at the areas that are running significantly above average for October, you're essentially looking at the south-east quarter of Queensland and the New South Wales coast from about Sydney north to the Queensland border," he said.
