OKwx2k4 posted a topic in East of the Rockies
http://theweatherforums.com/index.php/topic/1494-2017-summer-el-nino-watchdiscussion/?p=233795 I'm not really interested in if it's going to happen, but I am curious how this being eastern like the model suggests is even worse than it being in the middle. The next post in that thread suggests next winter won't show up (again) if we get a nino like this. But I did some brief googling and couldn't find much of an answer as to what the positioning of el nino means, lots of pop-weather sites that don't really explain things as well as I'd like. I just find results explaining what el nino and la nina are, not the effects, specially of the location and size (though strength is usually covered). I'm guessing the location affects the jet streams in various ways and prevents the midwest from getting some arctic air and blocking patterns. But that's just an educated guess. Thanks.
El Nino is not performing in Southern California for the time being. Persistent ridging to our southwest is redirecting the storm track to the north. It's not as big and strong as the infamous Really Resilient Ridge of the last few years, but it's strong enough to keep the rain away. How long until Southern California gets a storm with at least 0.50 inches for L.A. and San Diego?
El Nino means business
ClaireAnderson posted a topic in West of the RockiesAccording to the NOAA forecasters, the world's greatest weather maker El Nino is in place and will peak at the end of this fall or the beginning of winter. Its' intensity will be reduced by March next year. What sort impact do you expect to sea due to El Nino this time around?
