El Niño expected to continue through the Northern Hemisphere this winter


The U.S. Climate Prediction Center anticipated that El Niño will continue through the Northern Hemisphere this winter, with a greater than 95 percent chance through December 2023 to February 2024.


An El Niño Advisory remains in place.


Last month, El Niño continued as indicated by above-average sea surface temperatures across the equatorial Pacific Ocean.


Area-averaged subsurface temperature anomalies decreased compared to June, but remained positive, in association with anomalous warmth across the equatorial Pacific Ocean.


Forecasters are more confident in a "strong" El Niño event. While local impacts may not be evident, El Niño is anticipated to continue through the Northern Hemisphere this winter.
