And so it begins
El Niño has been on the lips of meteorologists for months. This ocean warming weather phenomena brings promise of reservoir filling rains, snow packed ski slopes and a warmer drier winter in the normally snowy east coast. The large storms associated with El Niño started in January of 1983 and February of 1998. Weather patterns have noticeably shifted as of this December. States that normally experience a white christmas will most likely celebrate a sunny and mild holiday. Fear not, the warm ocean waters promise a wet winter on the west coast. El Niño awakens.
