El Nio (/ ? l ? n i? n. j o? /; Spanish: ) is the warm phase of the El Nio?Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and is associated with a band of warm ocean water that develops in the central and east-central equatorial Pacific (between approximately the International Date Line and 120W), including the area off the Pacific coast of South America.

El Nio is a climate pattern that describes the unusual warming of surface waters in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. El Nino is the ?warm phase? of a larger phenomenon called the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). La Nina, the ?cool phase? of ENSO, is a pattern that describes the unusual cooling of the region?s surface waters.

An El Nio condition occurs when surface water in the equatorial Pacific becomes warmer than average and east winds blow weaker than normal. The opposite condition is called La Nia. During this phase of ENSO, the water is cooler than normal and the east winds are stronger. El Nios typically occur every 3 to 5 years.

El Nio is a condition that sometimes occurs in the Pacific Ocean, but it is so big that it affects weather all over the world. Weather depends a lot on ocean temperatures. Where the ocean is warm, more clouds form, and more rain falls in that part of the world.

The term El Nio refers to the large-scale ocean-atmosphere climate interaction linked to a periodic warming in sea surface temperatures across the central and east-central Equatorial Pacific. Typical El Nio effects are likely to develop over North America during the upcoming winter season.

The El Nio signal is evident in the eastward-blowing winds in the tropical western and central Pacific. Winds near the equator (5 North to 5 South) blew more forcefully from west to east in the western and central Pacific; meanwhile, the easterly (east to west) trade winds weakened near the Americas.
