The drought is slowly easing

This graphic of the medium term rainfall forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology suggests the drought that has gripped parts of Southern Australia is slowly easing.

Dam storage levels in many places are still very low simply because the long drought means that only a small proportion of initial rain runs off. Still, some regional centres such as Goulburn in NSW that have been on very tight water restrictions have been able to ease them.
