Australia, it’s time to prepare for a hot and dry spring and summer like no other. The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has issued a significant announcement that will shape our climate in the coming months. Here’s what you need to know:
El Niño Returns After Eight Years
For the first time in eight years, the world’s most influential climate driver, El Niño, has made a comeback, active over the Pacific. This comeback is set to have a profound impact on our weather patterns, and we need to be ready for its effects.
Positive Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) Joins the Party
In addition to El Niño, another major player, a “positive” Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), has also emerged on the climate scene. While it may not be as famous as El Niño, it’s equally influential and will play a crucial role in shaping our climate in the coming months.
Hot and Dry Conditions on the Horizon
The combined influence of El Niño and a positive IOD suggests that the upcoming months, particularly in the eastern states, are going to be characterised by hot and dry conditions. This is especially concerning when we consider the backdrop of ongoing climate change, which could result in a summer of intense and potentially record-breaking heat.
It’s vital to remember that such weather conditions can lead to various challenges, including an increased risk of wildfires, water shortages, and heat-related health concerns.
