Ski Press World is reporting that NASA Confirms El Niño’s Return. Awesome! El Niño bringeth snow! Woo hoo!
However, a little bit of reading into the article isn’t AS exciting. Conditions are not as strong as they were in 97/98 and the effect could taper off. Still, the potential for a great snow season is very strong. Everyone do your rain snow dances.
During the next several weeks and months, scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA will continue to closely monitor conditions in the Pacific to determine how the evolution of this El Niño may impact weather patterns this winter.
