Evidence is mounting that the El Niño is REAL

Th evidence that is mounting for an El Niño ocean-warming phenomenon in the Pacific that will create a rainy winter in California, will also be bringing the risk of crazy storms like those that battered the region in the late 1990s.  This is sure to develop into a great ski season for Colorado as well.  We are excited for the news and look forward to the continued reports

In the clearest warning yet that Southern California could be due for a deluge, meteorologists said in a report last week that the already strong El Niño has a 95 percent chance of lasting through the winter before weakening in the spring.

“This is as close as you’re going to get to a sure thing,” said Bill Patzert, a climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, calling this El Niño “too big to fail.”

“In the abstract,” he said, “El Nino seems like our savior.” But if floods and mudslides develop, it’s “not going to look like the great wet hope charging across the landscape on a white horse.”

    It’s sure to develop a great ski season for the southern mountains, not for the central mountains.
