Australia AUS: Failure of May rains puts winter crops at risk Fri 1 Jun 2018 - Australia's May average rainfall nationally came in at a mere 8.7mm, or 69% of average, making it the third driest May in the 119-year national record, according to the BoM's National Monthly Summary. It was only 0.9mm shy of the record dry May of 2008. QLD, NSW, SA and WA were all hard hit, with QLD receiving only 17% of normal May rain, NSW 25%, WA 26% and SA 42%.

Unfortunately, some of the driest parts were the farming areas looking for an autumn break to get winter crops in before the sowing window closed. These included large areas of southern WA, southern QLD and northern and eastern NSW. Fairfax Media reported that winter plantings were expected to be down 11% in QLD and 7% in NSW compared to 2017.
