Temperatures in the Pacific Ocean are finally returning to normal after last winter's powerful El Niño, Nasa reveals

After months of above average ocean temperatures tied to an extremely strong El Niño, researchers say the Pacific Ocean is finally cooling back down.

And, while many braced for the possibility of a La Niña event to close out the year and bring even more weather abnormalities, the analysis reveals the onset of such an event is unlikely.

A new animation released by Nasa shows how the ocean temperatures have changed since the start of 2015, illustrating the current transition back to a zone that’s neither too hot or too cold.
