How it works
The Indian Ocean went into Neutral for summer, as the monsoon takes over. The models heading into Negative/Wet for Winter are worth keeping an eye on.
The brown area indicates a "Positive IOD". The Indian Ocean pushes tropical moisture away from Australia (the Indian Ocean equivalent of El Nino).
The green area indicates a "Negative IOD". The Indian Ocean pushes tropical moisture towards Australia (the Indian Ocean equivalent of La Nina).
For good rain in Winter and Spring we look for a Negative IOD. A Positive IOD can lead to very dry conditions.
