Continued reduction in rainfall deficiencies following a wet July
Rainfall during July 2016 was above to very much above average for most of Australia. In the south rainfall was below average for much of the South West Land Division, but generally above average for the remainder of Western Australia, and also above average for much of southeast Australia. For Queensland and Tasmania it was the seventh-wettest July on record, while for Victoria it was the tenth-wettest July.
The July rainfall has removed deficiencies for the period starting in May 2015 over parts of southeastern South Australia and Victoria, although small areas of deficiencies remain, especially in central southern Victoria.
