So if El Nino # 2 is in the future than SoCal could get rain this summer like 2015!
I think that is a possibility. I certainly think something just has to give eventually to bring us a chance of rain at some point in the future. I find it impossible that this ridiculously resilient dry pattern can go on forever.
Hopefully this SSW event provides the shake up in the pattern that is so desperately needed. This dry pattern that has been consistently (too much in my opinion) setting all sorts of records for warmth mostly in CA really did begin in earnest during the 2012-13 season when the last SSW occurred, although 2011-12 was drier than average as well.
