Jason Furtado, a meteorologist (at my alma mater) the Uni. of Oklahoma, has a guest post on the Climate.Gov blog about the likely El Nino this winter. Every El Nino is different, but El Nino’s centered in the Pacific can have much different weather patterns across the U.S. compared to an East Pacific El Nino. Dr. Furtado explains why he thinks this one may be centered in the Pacific (good news for East Coast snow lovers?).
Read his post and learn some cool things about ocean currents and the atmosphere.
Below is the current sea surface temp. anomalies in the Pacific. It sure looks like Dr Furtado is on to something.
