The latest Climate Driver Update and Climate Model Summary are now available on our website.

El Niño persists as positive Indian Ocean Dipole continues to weaken

The El Niño event continues in the tropical Pacific. Model forecasts indicate the warmth of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) is likely at or near its peak, with SSTs expected to remain above El Niño thresholds into the southern hemisphere autumn 2024.

The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is currently positive. The SAM index is expected to decrease slightly, but stay near the positive SAM threshold for the coming fortnight.
The positive Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) event is weakening steadily.
The Madden–Julian Oscillation (MJO) is currently over the Indian Ocean. In the coming weeks, international climate models suggest it is likely to move across the Maritime Continent, strengthening as it shifts into Australian longitudes.

Global warming – global sea surface temperatures (SSTs) were highest on record for their respective months during April to November. Forecast unusually warm sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the Tasman Sea may also be contributing to a chance of above median summer rainfall over parts of Australia.
