There is evidence that we are in a part of our orbit around the sun and also coming under the influence of larger planets like Jupiter which both effect our weather patterns and will for some time to come. That's how it works and has for billions of years.

Hope it lasts long enough to go out and chase some mackerel, might have to dodge a few logs, pontoons, cattle, sheep, horses, unmanned boats, TV reporters, furniture. Damn, think I'll stay at home!

This is just a strong La Nina event. It has happened before and will happen again. It is a totally normal weather cycle in Australian terms. It has SWA to do with global warming.

It's called climate change! ;)

Yep the climate changes aaalll the time, yet these halfwit alarmists,would have us believe that there is supposed to be a set pattern of weather.:doh:

This pattern that we are having now, is what it was like when I was growing up, in the 60s-70s.

I take anything 'global warming' related with a big fat pinch of salt, sure there is something happening, but Im tired of people of some 'authority' actually telling us what it is without facts, when clearly they are entirely full of ****.

I am intrigued about what influences our weather and the patterns of consistent events happening every so often like clock work.

Its to do with whats called the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI).

This is a measure of Pacific Ocean surface sea temperatures between east and west. When the sea temperatures in the west increase more cloud and moisture are formed and driven onto the Australian mainland and increased rain events occur (El Nina).

When the the sea temperatures are higher in the east South America gets the rain and we tend to get drought (El Nino).

Its to do with large ocean currents and their cyclical effect on the sea surface temperatures.


Check out the Bureau of Meteorology website. It has a simplified explanation there.

Short term (50-100 years) changes in weather patterns not temperature, are not unusual in the long term average.
