El Niño Report, March 5, 2014


Synopsis: There is approximately a 50-60% chance that El Niño conditions will continue through the Northern Hemisphere summer of 2015.  Current conditions are consistent with a borderline, weak El Niño. 


Due to the expected weak strength, widespread or significant global impacts are not anticipated.  However, certain impacts often associated with El Niño may appear in some locations during the Northern Hemisphere spring of 2015. 


This report is a consolidated effort of the USA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  Oceanic and atmospheric conditions are updated weekly on the NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center web site (El Niño/La Niña Current Conditions and Expert Discussions).  The next monthly El Niño discussion is scheduled for April 9, 2014.  To receive an email notification when the monthly El Niño discussion is released, send an email message to:
