There has been plenty of continuing rain in June and July. My understanding is this is likely to continue until the beginning of summer due to a negative Indian Ocean dipole. The waters in the eastern Indian Ocean (near Indonesia) are warmer than normal, and the western Indian Ocean (near Africa) are cooler than normal. This causes more moisture-filled air to flow towards Australia that promotes more rainfall to southern parts of Australia including parts of Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, NSW and the ACT. I believe this has also contributed to a milder winter so far.
