Locally it is already too late to call it a fizzer.

That's true. Going by GFS, La Nina has some more building to do yet I think.

That is alright, we just had 100mm+ here. Needs to dry out a bit first.

Well all I will say is this is the best Spring we have had in many years. We have not just had rain, but the all important follow up rain.

I do feel for those who have missed out as I know how distraught the feeling is. Been down that road many times.

Some of the current CFS runs have Nino 3.4 going down to -1.5 or lower by April next year, it's certainly possible because there is a lot of cold water down there.

Looks like the western warm pool is warming while the cold pool in the east is continuing to cool.

I'm calling the current ENSO situation, in my view, cool-neutral!

Indeed, like an unstoppable freight train in the pacific. Also worthy of note are the high SST's still present in the tasman, between the SE and NZ. Some of the most widespread I've ever seen.

Ants are moving their nests to high ground and are moving to places where they have never been before, even before the 2011 floods.

I'd think we'd need a -IOD, or close to, for increased rains here in the SA smile .

Unless I'm mistaken they have also been the warmest anomalies on the planet for quite some time.

Pretty useless down there though, need them to shift up to NW and NE of Aus.

Youíll have to wait til May then. Besides isnít Adelaide a Mediterranean climate? Wet cold winters and dry hot summers?

Or we could wait, and wait, and wait for another 1-2 day deluge of at least 300 mm in the next 1-2 months...however Adelaide may not cope with 300 mm in that timeframe, and I don't think I'd want it to try wink .

Adelaide is technically Mediterranean, but there are variations, like anywhere.
