BOM: No rain until April

The sun goes down on a cloudless sky
The tide is in the waters high
The fisherman are back in town
Tonight they'll either drink or drown

Wait for rain to come down
Wait for rain all year round
It's the talk of the town, goin' 'round

It was the talk of the town, we were waiting for the rain. And, if Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) could be trusted (note that "IF") we would't have any rain until April 2020.

In December, 
a meeting of state and federal ministers was told, by the BoM that there would be no significant rain until at least April.

There will be no relief for drought-ravaged regions over the summer, with Bureau of Meteorology officials telling a meeting of state and federal ministers there would be no significant rain until at least April.
The ministers gathered in Moree, in NSW’s northwest, to discuss the best strategies to combat the enduring drought. (The Australian 11/12/19)
Now, outside the rain is tumbling down.

If they got this so wrong, can we trust the BoM on other reports? For Instance:(source)

2019 was Australia's warmest year on record.
