Record Breaking El Nino Collapsing from Below!
Mar 22, 2016
NOAA officially declared this past El Niño was indeed the strongest of the past 120 years and eclipsed the previous record year of 1997-1998. But that's history and now gear up for the polar opposite - La Niña! Sadly government weather agencies insist on modelling everything and can't see the forest through the trees so don't buy into the argument that models say we MIGHT be headed for La Niña. There's NO DOUBT we're headed for La Niña by Summer and a moderate to potentially strong one at that by Fall into Winter. And it's the trend that's more important than the actual ENSO value.
Just look at the sub-surface water temperatures across the Pacific Ocean and you can see how quickly El Niño will be wiped out in the next 60 days. 100 to 500 feet below the surface of the Western Pacific Ocean you can see first hand how quickly the cold water anomalies are racing toward the Eastern Pacific Ocean and beginning their march toward the surface. Notice the area in the once record strong El Niño region that had 6C temperature anomalies (much above average) quickly transition to -3C much below average anomalies in just 60 days.
And oh-by-the-way, we factor in a whole bunch of crazy math, statistics for 21 million locations covering every 1 mile on Earth and 23 other climate cycles when making our year ahead forecasts. To see how this pattern change will impact farmers, businesses and you see our video series that discuss much of the 2016 season ahead.
