Any weather experts out there? I read today about a predicted El Nino event for this year. In the best "what's in it for me" fashion -- I wonder how this is expected to affect snowfall in the Rockies and Northeast this winter.
Damn, I better move back to Southern Oregon. The last El Nino caused slight warming and heavy winter rains/snows there. Ski season would start a little late but once it got going the snow never stopped. If I remember right it also caused more snow in the Tahoe area. I can't remember what the effects were on the Rockies but it can't be any worse than what they've been experiencing the past few years.
I live in the Texas panhandle and ski Northern New Mexico (Taos) and Southern Colorado. We have been praying for another El Nino for over 2 years because the previous one brought the best snowfall in years. My wife and I have been talking for months about the propects of snow ever since it was first mentioned in the weather.
