El Nino

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
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.

I seem to remember that the last El Nino gave us a few extra inches of snow, but don't quote me on that.

El Nino is supposed to be raging in NZ this year, Mt Ruapehu had its highest snow level in 10+ years for end July.

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.
