Here's the weather across Australia on Friday June 12, 2020.

Showers are forecast for Australia's east and west coast today with central parts of the country set to stay warm once morning clouds clear up

A trough and front passing to the south of WA will bring showers, gusty winds and some storms to southern WA. Onshore winds with a trough over eastern QLD and northeast NSW will also trigger showers. High pressure looks to keep elsewhere mostly settled.

June is likely to be drier than average, the Bureau of Meteorology says – but July to September is likely to be wetter than average for most of Australia, except western Tasmania and parts of the far north, which are likely to be drier than average.

For northern Australia it is now the dry season, which means rainfall totals are typically very low.

The month of July is likely to be wetter than average across much of mainland southern Australia following a likely drier than average period through June. However, the July outlook does suggest that some parts of the southeast and southwest of the country have equal chances of a wetter or drier than average month.

July to September days are very likely to be warmer than average across most of Australia, except for SA, eastern WA, southwest NSW and northwestern Victoria, which have roughly equal chances of warmer or cooler winter days.

Nights are very likely to be warmer than average almost nationwide.

To Australia's east, the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean is likely to cool over the winter months, establishing a La Niña-like pattern, while warmer than average waters are likely in the eastern Indian Ocean. In the shorter-term, higher pressure is likely to continue to dominate much of Australia during the second half of June.
