The Star 8 Mar 16;

KUALA LUMPUR: The dry and hot weather due to the El Nino phenomenon is expected to return to normal beginning June.

Meteorological Department director-general Che Gayah Ismail said the strong El Nino level detected between last December and January was found to be dropping and expected to weaken further.

The change of the monsoon in April, she added, was also expected to reduce the effect of the hot weather with forecasts of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon.

“Although the El Nino will be in neutral condition beginning June, we will experience a dry season during the southwest monsoon from May to Sept­ember,” she said.

El Nino is the warming of the sea surface temperature in the eastern and central Equatorial Pacific Ocean that occurs every two to seven years.

The strongest El Nino phenomenon that swept the country was in 1997/1998 with a temperature of 40.1 degree Celsius recorded in Chuping, Perlis. — Bernama
