Aussie Scientists Says Ocean Slowly Warming

June 5, 2012 01:10 AM

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology says neutral ENSO conditions continue, but ocean temperatures are slowly warming and most climate models suggest El Nino willdevelop over the coming months.

"All seven models surveyed indicate conditions are likely to approach, or possibly exceed, El Niño thresholds during the (Southern Hemisphere) late winter to early spring period," it says. "Large parts of eastern Australia are typically drier and warmer-than-normal in winter/spring as El Niño events develop. No climate models favor a return to La Niña."
