Strong El Nino not expected to answer California drought

3 posts in this topic

WASHINGTON, July 11 (UPI) -- New ocean temperature readings suggest this year's occurrence of El Niño may be the strongest since 1997, when it caused massive flooding in northern California.

The drought-stricken state may benefit from the unexpectedly strong and warm jet stream, but some suggest rainfall will either not be enough, or too much.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this week predicted a collection of oceanic features will result in "an ongoing and strengthening El Niño." According to the report, there is more than a 90 percent chance it will continue through the Northern Hemisphere through the winter, and an 80 percent chance it will remain until early spring 2016.
