Experimental forecast outputs
The products are EXPERIMENTAL ONLY and do NOT currently form part of the Bureau's standard services in any way. Access to the products is made available for trial purposes only and on the basis that users are fully aware that these products are being tested and that users will not issue these products as real-time forecasts in any way. The forecast products are subject to the Bureau's copyright and disclaimer.

The following conditions apply:
  • Products are not official Bureau products, they are prototype products
  • Products are only to be used for trial purposes to assess their usefulness and not as an ongoing service
  • Products are not operationally supported, they may occasionally be unavailable for periods of up to 2 weeks e.g., due system upgrades
  • The look and feel of products may change at any stage without notice
  • The DCAP2 product tools and website will cease 6 months after the end of the project
  • The pie chart and histogram forecast products delivered here have been developed as a result of funding from the Queensland Drought and Climate Adaptation Program 2 - a Program designed to improve drought preparedness and resilience for Queensland producers ( https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/environment/drought/dcap/about-dcap ). The project, entitled The Use of Bureau of Meteorology Multi-Week and Seasonal Forecasts to Facilitate Improved Management Decisions in Queensland’s Vegetable Industry, will trial forecast products for the Lockyer Valley and the Granite Belt with producers to enhance farm management decision making in the Queensland vegetable industry.
