The State Flood Control and Draught Relief Headquarters forecast Monday that southern parts of China will likely experience large-scale floods in the spring of 2016.

The ongoing El Nino phenomenon, which started in May 2014 and has all the hallmarks of a super El Nino, will last till the next spring. It is estimated to cause excessive rainfall in areas south of the Yangtze River and, ultimately, floods.

A super El Nino requires 4 degree Celsius rise in the tropical waters of the Pacific, and 2 degree rise in the ocean along the equator.

The headquarters also said that south China will experience heavy rainfall in the next three days.
