The video discusses the weather phenomenon known as El Nino, the warm phase of the El Nino Southern Oscillation. During El Nino, the ocean temperature in the Central and Eastern Pacific Ocean becomes unusually warm, leading to hot and dry conditions, increasing the risk of bushfires and droughts. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been monitoring the situation closely to determine if El Nino is present. While many expected an announcement, the bureau is still cautious, as the atmosphere hasn't fully reinforced the typical pattern of an El Nino event. They will remain on El Nino alert until they are certain.
