We got a El Nino in the works, to be colloquial there for a second. Will take a bite out of drought, and the California coastline due to big storms and waves next winter when it happens. See old graphic below. Supposed to develop during the next few months, and then be full blowed by fall, to continue a western dialect. Pretty exciting, thinking about an El Nino. This word, BTW, from Nate1, or rather, indirectly, from his El Nino expert forecasting buddies.
Summer rain’s not so much affected by an El Nino, but it could mean a better chance of a rogue tropical storm affecting us in the fall because they’re stronger/longer as they sometimes push northward at that time of the year, and then our chances to get substantial rains during the winter season are pretty good , particularly late winter, Jan through May. Obviously, pretty desperate, talkin’ about next fall and winter here in summer’s February.
Just ahead, a cold one (or two)
