Australia experienced one of the driest days on record across the mainland this week, with only two locations receiving minimal rain.
Early reports on Monday November 11 suggested no rain fell across the mainland, and that was true for Queensland however the Bureau of Meteorology said there was small falls elsewhere.
"While it remained dry across most of Australia, during the 24 hours to 9am today (November 12) rainfall was recorded in a number of locations," a BOM spokesperson said.
"Victoria (Springvale) totals were below 3 mm."
Labelle, Northern Territory also received less than 6 mm.
And if you want to include Tasmania, it received no greater than 20 mm.
A BOM spokesperson said it was unusual for the mainland to be so dry this deep into November.
"Australia takes weather from all directions, which makes it a very rare occurrence for rain-bearing clouds to not hit the mainland," the spokesperson said.
"For Mount Isa there is no rain predicted for the next 10 days and the seasonal outlook predicts a late wet season."
The BOM spokesperson said the monsoon was currently over India which was unusual to still be there this time of year.
"Because it is late we don't predict to see rain until December and the monsoon set in until the New Year," he said.
"Every wet season is different, so it is hard to predict at this stage."
