Could A Potential El Nino Be A Big One?

The bigger question is “how will Warmists use a natural phenomenon to their unhinged advantage?” Also, “who will be the first Warmist to blame the El Nino on “climate change”?”

(ABC News) El Niño is a growing threat this year that could play havoc with weather patterns in the United States, forecasters say.

El Niño, named for the warm waters that occasionally occur in the Pacific Ocean near South America, brings fluctuating weather that includes droughts, flooding and heat waves.

“We have above-normal temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean and that often precedes an El Niño because there’s a large volume of above-average water temperature below the surface of the ocean,” Anthony Barnston, chief forecaster for the International Research Institute for Climate and Society, told ABC News. “Volume often tends to come up to the surface; often, but not always.

“That’s the uncertainty,” Barnston said. “It’s more likely to rise than not.” (snip)

Barnston notes a 70 percent probability of the United States’ experiencing an El Niño this year. He said the official outlook will be coming Thursday from the two agencies – his research institute and the Climate Prediction Center – and will most likely give a slightly lower probability of an El Niño event.

If an El Niño persists, Barnston said, it will develop between April and June and last until the start of the next calendar year for a nine-to-10 month cycle.

It is not expected to be a big one, about half the power of the massive 1997 El Nino. You know that the warmth and rain and other weather changes will be blamed on Mankind.

    You left out the “e” in potential in both the headline and your tweet.

  2. Yeah, I had wrote it quick before heading to work, and forgot I had misspelled it before posting, went right back and fixed.

    If 2014 turns out to be the warmest year recorded it means Lord Mungton will have to wait another 17 years 8 months to pimp that it stopped warming.

    An El Nino transfers stored ocean heat to the atmosphere. A La Nina reverseds that. Neither adds or removes heat from the overall system.

    Well there you have it: We have above-normal temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean and that often precedes an El Niño because there’s a large volume of above-average water temperature below the surface of the ocean”
    Often precedes, meaning this as most of us know, is a naturally occurring weather system and we can not be responsible for it happening thi syear, or any.

    The PDO is in the wrong phase for a strong El Nino.

    Ahh yes that really hot year 1997
    “Natural” do you mean as opposed to supernatural like the Great Flood?
    What about that pause thing ?
    Do you consider the effects of man on the planet to be natural or unnatural ?
    Is man part of nature?

    Nope, not warmer, not this planet. No way!
