After a four-year process, the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) has been officially designated as the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Regional Climate Centre (RCC) for the Caribbean . The achievement is a critical step in the implementation of the United Nations (UN)-supported and WMO-led Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) which recognizes that climate information and associated services are critical for improving the livelihoods of many people around the world, especially those in Small Island Developing States (SIDS), Least Developed Countries (LDCs...

ENSO neutral conditions currently prevail in the tropical Pacific Ocean, despite sea surface temperatures being near the El Niño threshold. Most climate models surveyed indicate that ENSO-neutral conditions will continue through July-September 2017, followed by a 50-60% chance of a continuation of ENSO-neutral during the subsequent months of 2017. The development of El Niño conditions is slightly less likely, while the emergence of La Niña appears unlikely. National Meteorological and Hydrological Services will continue to closely monitor changes in the state of ENSO over the coming months.
