👇 Here’s the seasonal precipitation forecast for the upcoming Aug-Oct season — it shows where there are tilts of the odds for below or above average precip. The other map shows precip impacts as they’ve tended to happen during El Niños past.

Here are the probabilities for ENSO. The first image is based on models only, the second image is the official IRI / forecast, which incorporates human judgement.

Dynamical models, though, stay below the El Niño threshold for most of the forecast period. Their mean goes above the threshold in early 2020.

Model predictions have cooled some since last month’s predictions. The mean of the statistical models remains just above the threshold through the end of the year.

But, notes Barnston, controversial as to whether that means it can be called an if Nino3.4 stays below the +0.5ºC threshold.

BUT! another atmospheric indicator of is the Southern Oscillation Index, which measures differences from normal in atmospheric pressure. Oddly, says Barnston, compared to other indicators this one is still showing favorably for El Niño.

Blue (indicating convection) around 180º is an important indicator of conditions. For the first time since last year, we’re seeing some orange (lack of convection) in that area. Sign of a waning El Niño there.

Nino3.4 is weakening, though Nino4 is still going strong, indicating a more west-central flavor of event.
