An Indian Ocean El Niño may appear soon.

An Indian Ocean El Niño could appear in the next 30 years, according to new research. The Indian Ocean exeriences small climate swings from year to year as the prevailing winds blow gently from west to east and maintains stable ocean conditions. The research says global warming could reverse the direction of these winds, destabilizing the ocean and tipping the climate into warming and cooling wings similar to El Niño and La Niña in the Pacific Ocean. The result coukd be new climate extremes across the region, including disruption of the monsoons over East Africa, islands like Seychelles and India
