What weather will La Niņa bring?
La Niņa is a natural phase of Australia’s weather cycle that warms the waters off Australia’s north coast, increasing cloud development and rainfall. This heightens the chance of hail, storms and associated flooding through the warmer months of the year across central, eastern and northern Australia. A La Niņa event is also likely to increase the number of cyclones we experience and bring forward the start of the cyclone season in the north of the country. Fortunately, La Niņa is also likely to result in a milder bushfire season, nationally.
