According to the latest information, it has been indicated by the Japan’s weather bureau on Thursday that there was a high possibility that a La Nina weather pattern would emerge in summer after the current El Nino phenomenon ends, reiterating an earlier forecast. Moreover, the Japan Meteorological Agency has also narrated in this regard that the El Nino was expected to continue weakening and there was a high possibility the weather event would finish before summer, which generally runs from June to August.
Further, in this matter it has also been revealed that El Nino – a warming of sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific can trigger drought in Southeast Asia and Australia and floods in South America, hitting production of key foods such as rice, wheat and sugar. However, a La Nina can be less damaging than an El Nino and the weather event is linked to wetter conditions over much of Australia and Southeast Asia as it has been stated. Meanwhile, the Australian forecasters earlier this week put the chance of a La Nina emerging in 2016 at 50 percent.
