La Nina finally ends
THE weather system behind Australia's wet summer, La Nina, has now officially ended.
The Weather Channel senior meteorologist Tom Saunders said the weather conditions in the Pacific Ocean had been returning to normal during the past few weeks.
"With Australia's normal wet season also coming to an end we can expect drier weather through most northern and central parts of the country during April and May," he said.
"It is too early to forecast what phase the Pacific Ocean will move to in winter, we could remain neutral, return to another La Nina or welcome back El Nino."
