EL NIÑO SOUTHERN OSCILLATION – ENSO
July 19th, 2022
Current State: LA NIÑA CONDITIONS


  • During the last 30 days, sea surface temperatures (SST) at equatorial Pacific Ocean were below normal between 160°E and 150°W. Colder anomalies were observed near the South American coast, south of the equator.

  • Since late June, trade winds have intensified between 120°W and 140°E.

  • Sub-surface ocean water temperatures at equatorial Pacific Ocean were warmer than normal at most part of the region, from 50 m to 250 m depth. Colder temperatures were observed between 120°W and 160°E, near surface.

  • 30-day moving SOI (Southern Oscillation Index) has positive values, according to the cold phase. Its latest value is +17.0 (ending on July 17).

  • During the last 30 days, convection at equatorial Pacific Ocean was below normal between 150°W and 150°E.

  • Dynamical and statistical models predict, for Niño region, 60 % chances of keeping La Niña conditions during the season July-August-September 2022.
