Every single long-range computer forecast model used by meteorologists predicts a strong, or very strong El Nino for the entire globe this coming winter, the first time that’s happened since 1997.
It is very important to understand, just because the weather computer models are pointing in the direction of a powerful El Niño later this year does NOT mean it will happen! Last year, these same computer models indicated THIS past winter (2014-2015) would be wet, and we know how all that turned out!
The National Weather Service confirms a strong El Nino is increasingly likely, and some sort of El Nino is nearly guaranteed, while a very strong El Nino historically has clobbered San Francisco with 43 inches of rain.
