It’s now unlikely that a strong El Niño will develop this fall, dimming hopes in California for snow/rain

In the United States, a moderate to strong El Niño often brings milder winter temperatures in the Northeast and Northwest and storms across the Southeast. A strong El Niño can often lead to waves upon waves of rain in California as the warm Pacific waters produce more storms that are pushed east by jet stream winds.

“It shifts your odds” toward a very wet winter, Mr. Halpert said, “but it doesn’t make you any promises.”

Drought is a bad business, especially in places that depend on irrigation waters that become less plentiful when it gets dry.

Drat. That means the fire danger will be higher.

Still more likely than not that at least a weak El Niño will develop this fall.
