    Bringing some relief to drought-stricken Southwest.


    As Becker puts it, “The strength of El Niño doesn’t necessarily indicate the strength of its impacts on global weather. But a stronger El Niño can increase the likelihood that impacts of some kind will happen.”

    If current forecasts are right, we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out just what El Niño will bring this time around.

    LOL...

    Time will tell.. But major predictors say we will fall back into a cooling trend within 2 months. El Niño may never really become reality as it takes 90 days of +0.5 deg C to actually be called it and I doubt the current warm will last that long with massive cold plumes about to surface.

    Well now, we have one of Silly Billy's prognostications once again. Bet it will have all the validity of the last time he chimed in on an El Nino. He was claiming it did not exist, even as it ramped up to a major El Nino. Most of Silly Billy's 'facts' have that certain smell about them because of where he get them from.

    Nobody cares about the El Nino.....people are more interested in the new Trump supporter dating app you can now download to help men avoid the feminist bulldog-types.

    Well, well, well..

    Regions 1, 2, 3 are now in cooling free fall. Appears now that El Niño conditions won't last much longer...

    Silly Billy, going to be denying this El Nino also, until it hits him in the face. LOL +0.9 for the world temp today, +1.3 for the northern hemisphere. Some cooling there, Silly Billy. And we are not even deep into the El Nino, yet.
