South African Weather Service forecaster Elizabeth Viljoen says La Niña is still going to be in circulation for the remainder of summer and even into early autumn there is a possibility of above-normal rainfall.

It has been raining in Johannesburg so much this summer. How much has this got to do with climate change? The South African Weather Service released a statement today about the La Niña-Southern Oscillation.

The forecast says that more rain.

South African Weather Service forecaster Elizabeth Viljoen has more.

We are currently in La Niña. What this means is that we are expecting above-normal rainfall. This forecast has been in place already last year. Seasonal forecasters were seeing the signals for our summer season. La Niña is still going to be in circulation for the remainder of summer even into early autumn there is a possibility of above-normal rainfall.

Elizabeth Viljoen, Forecaster - South African Weather Service

La Niña - the opposite is el nino - is a global phenomenon is linked with sea-surface temperature, it depends on where you are on the globe. We still see some rain in Gauteng and we expect showers all of today. We have a Level 2 warning of rainfall for today. Tomorrow it will start to clear, that is good news.
