    Issue Notes - Issued Jun 12

    ENSO status: La Niña Watch. IOD status: Neutral. Positive less likely SAM status: Neutral, favouring positive in winter. The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is in a La Niña Watch, meaning there is approximately a 50% chance of a La Niña developing this year. Some ocean cooling is occurring in the eastern Pacific, with 3 out of 7 global models forecasting a La Niña to develop in 2024. However, the Nino3.4 region is still warm from last years El Niño, meaning if La Niña were to develop, it would likely be declared no earlier than October. Warmer than normal waters are situated in the Coral Sea, providing moisture and humidity to the east coast. The atmosphere continues to be neutral. A La Niña typically increases rainfall over central Australia, Qld and NSW, but has little effect on southern WA, SA, Vic and Tas during winter. The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is in a neutral phase. A burst of tropical activity in May has significantly disrupted the ocean component of the IOD, with the index now veryclose to zero. The atmosphere is still mostly set up, so a positive IOD could still develop this year. However, if a La Nina-like pattern continues to develop in the Pacific, warm water would likely push into through the Indonesian flow-through, disrupting any positive IOD signal. Therefore, it is now more likely than not the IOD stays in a neutral phase this year. A positive IOD reduces the number of northwest cloudbands that cross Australia during winter and spring, reducing rainfall across central and southeastern parts of Australia. The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is neutral, after a 3-week negative spell during late May and early June. The SAM is expected to favour a positive phase during July and August. A positive SAM increases easterly winds across Australia. This leads to increased rainfall and thunderstorm activity in the east, while reducing cold fronts and rainfall over southern Australia, particularly for southwest WA. Rainfall outlooks are showing slightly below average rainfall over winter (mostly June and July) for WA, and most of SA, Vic and Tas. Conversely, above average rainfall is expected for eastern parts of Qld and NSW, and eastern Tas. Outlooks turn close to average in August throughout mainland Australia, with Tas still showing drier than normal.
