Weather Events from the result of El Nino

1) A shift of thunderstorm activity eastward from Indonesia to the south pacific, in which this leads to abnormally dry conditions and severe droughts during both warm and cold seasons in Australia, the Philippines, Indonesia, southeastern Africa and Brazil.

2) During the summer season the Indian monsoon is less intensive than normal and therefore it is much less rainy than usual in India.

3) Much wetter conditions at the west coast of tropical South America.
