CliMate app to help put a handle on the weather.. The app can provide three types of answers based on long-term and recent weather data: the probability of future events based on long-term data; the probability of future events based on El Ni o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts; and the current status of the system, such as the soil water and heat sum, based on real-time data from the nearest climate station... Dr Freebairn says that creating an app was somewhat risky because he had not developed for that platform before. "..

BOM climate meteorologist Grant Beard says that although central to eastern Pacific sea-surface temperatures have remained close to average during March, following the rapid cooling that took place during January and February, the remaining large pool of cold sub-surface water could indicate a La Ni a event...
