Everything I’m reading indicates this El Nino continues to be one of the strongest on record. If the past helps predict the future, in past El Nino years, the hurricane season shuts down for the last 2 months of the season. Even though widespread rains have yet to arrive in northern California, southern CA, NV & AZ have all had soaking rains the past 2-3 days. That even includes Lost Wages. (that’s Las Vegas for those in the know). A tropical system near Hawaii is expected to head towards the west coast for next week. We could be seeing a parade of storms for the next several months. But the real question is…what does that mean for us? Again, past history tells us in El Nino years, we are very wet & very cold. I won’t be surprised to see several hard freezes this Winter plus the opportunities for some of the white stuff ! I knew that’ll get your attention! Stay tuned!
In the short term, we’ll be summer like the next 2-3 days until a weak front arrives late Friday/early Saturday. Rain chances will be slim to none and the cooling will be only several degrees. this is not a sweater weather front.
