El Nino weather pattern. Artwork of an Earth globe showing the El Nino weather pattern (red) over the eastern Pacific off South America. El Nino is the warm phase of the El Nino/La Nina-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) that occurs across the tropical Pacific Ocean roughly every five years. The ENSO affects weather systems across the world, bringing extreme weather such as floods and droughts. El Nino generally causes drier conditions in Australia and South-East Asia, and wetter and warmer conditions in the Americas.
