What does El Nino mean for us?

We have been hearing a bit about El Nino lately.  Have you ever wondered what it means?  and how it affects our weather here?
To keep it really simple, El Nino is part of a natural cycle of weather that affects the Pacific Ocean, specifically to do with the sea surface temperatures.  That warming and cooling of the ocean temperatures then has a follow on effect to us here in Australia.
Most Australian droughts have been associated with El Nino, although we don't necessarily get a drought each time El Nino occurs.
It usually means for us here in Australia, that we can have reduced rainfall, warmer temperatures, temperature extremes, increased frost risk, decreased snow depths, and increased fire danger in southeast Australia - our area!
Currently we are in the early stages of El Nino.  The Bureau of Meteorology have said that the current May to July outlook suggests that much of Australia will be wetter than average.  There is expected to be much more effect in the second half of the year.
Want to know more?  the Bureau of Meteorology has lots of great information about this -

Anglesea Community Gardens - new tank

Anglesea Community Gardens recently sent us a lovely photo of their new tank set up in their gardens.

They went in our competition last year to win a tank for a local community group, and were the lucky winners of a 5,000 litre tank, which they then upgraded to a 10,000 litre tank.

We are sure the extra water will be very welcome for their beautiful gardens, thanks for the picture guys!
