Monsoon 2023 has wreaked havoc in multiple states with flooding situations in many states taking a toll on lives and properties. But, the situation is expected to improve as according to SkymetWeather the monsoon is likely to enter a weak phase in August and the El Nino phenomena may also cast its shadow. The website tracking weather is expecting a weak phase of monsoon to start from 4 August.

El Nino turning stronger

El Nino refers to a natural climate phenomenon characterized by warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean.

The report by SkymetWeather explains over the past four weeks, the temperatures on the surface of the ocean around the equator have been higher than usual. This is particularly true in the central and eastern parts of the Pacific Ocean. Near Ecuador and Peru, the sea surface temperatures have been increasing rapidly.

It adds that during July 2023, the El Nino conditions were weak in the central-eastern equatorial Pacific, but are now getting comparatively stronger and are being classified as weak-to-moderate El Nino.

Thousands of people were displaced and properties worth crore was destroyed in the floods triggered by heavy rains in the state.
