2016 begins with a peaking El Nino, and the question is - how goes season 2016. Will La Nina roar back in as the warm waters of the Pacific slosh back our way. Or will it be a neutral ENSO year - The latest BOM ENSO update says either are equally possible - with a repeat El Nino the least likely. Adding to the Olympic Year good omens is that other old chestnut for seasonal prediction - Lake Eyre. And the news is good with water flowing in once again. ++ Birds set to return to Lake Eyre to breed as inland lakes fill with water ++ Whether it has any impact on our winter season is debateable - but others swear by it.
