Default Official El Nino Thread

Yup I went there. Found some reliable articles on the topic and it seems pretty likely we'll have at least a moderate El Nino

I'll post up these links for easy access and to stay up to date on the developing conditions in the mysterious blue:

Depending on the location where it builds, El Nino can either be good for us or bad for us. It's the name given to the hurricane season in the Pacific. If it develops on the eastern border of the Pacific Ocean (near the West Coast), storm frequency and precipitation increases, and as a result the moisture from the hot waters near the coast creates a storm path that goes through central and southern California, but generally most of the West coast benefits from it.

However if it develops in central pacific, it can diverge rain from us, giving us a varying results, and if it develops in the western pacific, we experience La Nina, and become completely fucked on the precipitation scale

Do any of these situations have much effect on the rest of the country or is it mostly felt on the West Coast?

Predictions are one thing, maps and graphs are a different story. It hitting trends not seen since '97 Plus this year we had a big plume from a volcanic eruption in the southeastthat's supposed to help further the trend
