WMO predicts unusually high temperatures around the world this year, but el Nino has a low probability.

On March 2, the World Meteorological Organization said the probability of an El Nino this year was low, but that many places around the world would still experience unusually high temperatures due to climate change caused by man-made activities, according tomedia reports. WMO estimates that the probability of El Ni?o and La Ni?a occurs between March and April 2020 is 35 per cent and 5 per cent, respectively, compared with 20-25 per cent between June and August.

El Ni?o is a natural phenomenon, mainly refers to the eastern and central Pacific tropical ocean sea temperature abnormal warming, resulting in changes in the world’s climate patterns, resulting in drought in some areas, some areas of excessive rainfall.

The World Meteorological Organization’s latest forecasting tool, global seasonal climate update, shows that global ground temperatures are likely to be above normal between March and May 2020, especially in the tropics.

“Due to global warming, rising air and sea level temperatures, the oceans are warming, and even without El Nino, the months will be hotter than usual,” said WMO Secretary-General Taras. More than 90 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases are discharged into the ocean, and ocean heat is at a record high. “

Taras said strong El Ninos, combined with human-induced global warming, made 2016 the hottest year on record. “Although El Nino is not strong in 2019, it is still the second warmest year on record, ” he said. We have just had the hottest January on record, and it is fair to say that the impact of human activity on the climate is as strong as that of natural phenomena such as El Ni?o. “

The WMO says the central Pacific, the southwestern Indian Ocean and the equatorial regions of Africa are likely to experience unusual rainfall this year, while northern South America, Central America and the Caribbean, as well as southern Africa, are likely to experience unusual rainfall. Weather in South-East Asia, Oceania and Western Australia is expected to be drier than between November and January.
