, which could develop in the coming months.
As we head into the late summer and early fall, the developing La NiEa
will strengthen and become the dominant driver of North American weather.
Keeping abreast of La NiEa
-- a weather system which could wreak further havoc in a parched East Africa -- is clearly concentrating minds at the department.
