Prabhakarji NEM soon will become - "Non existent monsoon"
Atleast this year 2017 SE India was lucky to receive some mercy rains during SWM break period else worst drought than 2016...

Other side excess rains over konkan == I can see delightful flamingos coming over Airoli creek bridge over dense mangrove forest... (thanks for vagaries Mangrove article). By the way Mumbai has over 40 lakh trees (this is excluding biggest forest city - sanjay gandhi national park, aarey milk colony,mangroves). But if we consider Navi Mumbai or Thane green areas this will exceed crore trees already they are greenest cities. Sustained efforts by MAHA govt in tree plantation is great - 50 crore trees to be planted by next few years...

Already mango trees have started dense flowering in Mumbai....quiet early.

I doubt the number of trees to be 40 lakhs in mumbai. Over the years it has decreased with increasing population and infrastructure development. Yes navimumbai could have more trees as it is still expanding.

Issued 19 December 2017

The latest ENSO Wrap-Up and Climate Model Summary are now available on the Bureau's website.

La Niña in the tropical Pacific

ENSO Outlook

Our ENSO Outlook provides
up-to-date information on the likelihood of an El Niño or La Niña developing.

Current status: LA NIÑA

La Niña conditions continue in the tropical Pacific. However, the event is expected to be short-lived, and is likely to end in the southern autumn of 2018.

Latest sea surface temperature observations in the central and eastern tropical Pacific persist at La Niña levels (0.8 °C below average). Waters are also cool beneath the surface. While the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) has eased in the few days, the SOI has been consistent with La Nina for several weeks. Cloudiness patterns across the Pacific region also show a clear La Niña signal.

In order for 2017–18 to be classed as a La Niña year, thresholds need to be exceeded for at least three months. Most climate models surveyed by the Bureau suggest this event is likely to last through the southern summer, and decay in the early southern autumn of 2018.

 La Niña typically brings above average rainfall to eastern Australia during summer, particularly in northern New South Wales and Queensland. However, with a weak event expected, this typically means less influence upon Australian rainfall. La Niña events can also increase the likelihood of prolonged warm spells for southeast Australia.

 The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is currently neutral. IOD events are unable to form between December and April.

Next update expected on 3 January 2018
