May 9 (Reuters) - There was about a 70 percent chance of El Niño conditions continuing through the northern hemisphere summer 2019, a U.S. government weather forecaster said on Thursday.

The chances of the weather pattern continuing through the fall season were slightly lower at 55 to 60 percent, the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center (CPC) added in its monthly forecast. (Reporting by Eileen Soreng and Brijesh Patel in Bengaluru Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
