El Niño Outlooks
The warm SST anomalies in the equatorial Pacific have changed little overall since early October, and remain near or just above the +0.5C threshold marking an El Niño event. Our model has moved lower with the maximum strength of the El Niño and weakens SST anomalies toward warm-neutral in the next 1-2 months.
