The Fickle El Niņo of 2014

Prospects have been fading for an El Niņo event in 2014, but now there's a glimmer of hope for a very modest comeback.


The image shows Kelvin waves of high sea level (red/yellow) crossing the Pacific Ocean at the equator. The waves can be related to El Niņo events. Green indicates normal sea level, and blue/purple areas are lower than normal. Data are from the NASA/European Jason-2 satellite, collected Sept. 13-22, 2014. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

1. Weather guessers. All our knowledge & technology, and we're still little better than diviners . . .

I hope they're wrong. I hope we have massive rainstorms and blinding, wet-snow blizzards all winter long.

5. Thaks for the update. Much of the west coast would welcome El Niņo rain this year.

7. Here's something

that may bring some good fortune our way. But if not, a feast for the eyes.
