BOM Says El Niño Drawing To An End

El Niño is coming to an end and there is a 50 per cent chance of La Niña conditions taking hold in the Pacific Ocean during 2016, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM). Six of eight international climate models suggest the tropical Pacific will return to neutral levels by the end of May. By September, seven of eight models suggest La Niña thresholds are likely to be reached. However, individual model outlooks show a large spread between neutral and La Niña scenarios.
