Event description

Description

Wondering when the next rain might come? Wishing you could look into a crystal ball and see the future? Unfortunately we can't help with that but we can try and answer the question - Can we really forecast seasonal conditions in central Australia? To do this it helps to understand the major climate drivers that influence the weather in this part of the world over the season rather than day to day watching the predictions. Having this background insight can give us confidence in the seasonal forecasts that are published, where to find them and then use them to help inform the way we manage our businesses knowing what the season ahead is set to look like. If you work on the land or with people that do, it makes business sense to use the forecast to make decisions about how many aniamals to sell and when, weather to put the pipline in, etc. This workshop is designed to help you have the background knowledge in the major climate drivers or where to find different weather information that can help you. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops or devices so we can explore some of the apps and webpages that are available for pastoralists and the public to use for free.
