El Nino could return in second half of 2017: WMO

WMO says climate models suggests a 50% chance of neutral conditions continuing in the second half of 2017, with a 35-40% chance of El Nino developing

Geneva: El Nino weather conditions could return to heat up the planet later this year, although neutral conditions are slightly more likely, the UN’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said in a statement on Thursday.

Climate models surveyed by the WMO suggested a 50% chance of neutral conditions continuing in the second half of 2017, with a 35-40% chance of El Nino developing, and only a slight chance of La Nina, which tends to have a cooling effect. Reuters
