Monster El Nino May Be Brewing, Experts Say

Post by etnwx on 2014-04-22, 1:13 pm

Ready for a ’90s El Niño flashback?

Researchers are keeping a close eye on a giant pool of abnormally warm water in the Pacific Ocean that some think could trigger another El Niño of epic proportions if it rises to the surface, sending weather patterns into a tizzy around the world.

That could mean heavy rains in drought-stricken California, dry weather across the Midwest and East Coast, and parched landscapes in Australia and South Africa while it pours in South America. The phenomenon is linked to the periodic warming of surface waters in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean.

I would have posted this in the news section, but apparently I do not have access. sneaky

So you're looking to main stream media for your weather? The El Nino is already backing off. I trust Bastardi on these matters. He's got good objective ideas and usually admits when he's wrong and learns from it.

Watch that. It says the coming winter should be like 02-03 and 09-10, both of which had a few good snows it middle TN.

I try to look everywhere for weather news. If you look in "Severe getting cranked up?", you'll see that several days ago I posted an article from Accuweather.

Point is, I don't cherry pick from one source or another, and I don't necessarily agree with every article I post. They are just added to debated upon, agreed or disagreed with, and analyzed. Personally I hope we don't have an El Nino as that means dry weather for us IIRC.

And as far a Bastardi goes, he's had a lot of hits and misses just like any other forecaster.
