The site includes easily understood El Nino and La Nina forecasts. The forecasts are summaries of the Australian National Climate Centre's opinion regarding the outputs from various reputable oceanic or coupled ocean/atmosphere forecast models. NCC's interpretation may not necessarily be the same as the organizations producing the model output. Readers are therefore encouraged to follow the hyperlinks ... Full description.
