The bizarre weather cycle that has spanned the world over appears to be subsiding, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. Known as the El Nino phenomenon, this anolymous weather cycle, which tends to mature in winter and possibly subside in summer, accounts for abnormal sea-surface temperatures, trade winds, and sea temperature distribution, etc. This winterís cycle has included a severe drought in Australia and high temperatures in Southeast Asia. Meteorological agencies in the U.S. and Australia have confirmed Japanís predicted El Nino decline.
