EL NINO BACKS OFF

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy’s ENSO Out­look has been down­graded from El Niño watch to in­ac­tive, af­ter an eas­ing of cli­mate model out­looks, and a re­ver­sal of the early au­tumn warm­ing seen in the east­ern trop­i­cal Pa­cific Ocean. All eight in­ter­na­tional cli­mate mod­els sur­veyed by the Bureau now sug­gest trop­i­cal Pa­cific Ocean tem­per­a­tures are likely to re­main neu­tral for the sec­ond half of 2017, com­pared to seven of eight mod­els that were fore­cast­ing a pos­si­ble El Niño event in April.
