    El Niño has reached its peak according to scientists and is set to decline over the next few months.

    Researchers say there is a 50:50 chance that it will be replaced by a La Niña event before the end of this summer.

    La Niña which involves a cooling of the Pacific Ocean, usually brings wetter conditions to Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    These events can typically last twice as long as an El Niño.

    Warmest January on record
    While the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reports that the El Niño event has reached its apex, it is still having a significant influence on the global climate.
