Peru is expected to experience a weak El Niño next year, according to specialists.

Peru’s National Committee for the Study of El Niño (ENFEN) said Tuesday it expects the natural weather phenomenon to occur over the summer of 2013.

The agency also said chances of a global el Niño were far less likely than what had been estimated by international agencies, due to normalization in conditions in the Pacific ocean, RPP reported.

"During the month of September,” the agency said,” the Coastal El Niño Index (ICEN) for the South American coast, indicates that El Niño had culminated in July and had occurred with a weaker magnitude.”

Temperatures for the remainder of the year, the agency said, are expected to keep within a normal range.

>Previously the agency warned that warm conditions could have an >impact on the country’s fishing industry.
