MARCH may be indicated as a generally drier than normal month, but the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a cumulative 25mm to 50mm of rain for every part of Queensland during the next eight days.

BoM's eight day forecast issued on Monday morning shows major band of rain following ex-tropical cyclone Esther stretching from the Western Australian/Northern Territory border across the Channel Country and down in south east NSW. There is also a rain band extending from the Gulf down to the Central Highlands.

The balance of Queensland can expect 25mm over the forecast period.

According to BoM there is a 60-70 per cent chance of drier conditions in Queensland and the NT, and up to 75pc chance in northern WA in March.

In its latest three month outlook, BoM says there is a 60 to 65 per cent chance that scattered parts of northern Australia will to be drier than average during the March to May period.
