Impact Of Strongest El Nino On Record

December 2, 2015

Weather is something that always attracts my attention and interest.  The El Nino which is driving our weather all across the United States is making for warmer temps in some places and more precipitation in other regions.

This El Nino is the strongest on record and does make for concern.  Time and again we are witnessing the setting of weather records be it the warmest month as Dane County experienced in November, or the most intense cyclones, etc.  This is all part and parcel of the climate change taking place, and again shows why we need to be more proactive in dealing with the root causes of these changes.

El Nino’s impacts are already evident across the Midwest–from an early season “snow drought” across the North Woods—where Marquette, MI, which had recorded 56.2″ of snow by this time a year ago, has measured only 9″ of snow to date this year.  It’s a trend which is being observed from northern Minnesota into a wide swath of Wisconsin and Michigan.

    The most severe and record setting weather events are taking place and the facts such as lowest barometric pressures, rainfall, etc are all proof. This El Nino is just the latest example. The first temp data is already in, and posted here.

    In March, a category five tropical storm Cyclone Pam hit islands in the South Pacific. May had the warmest month on record for Alaska, that same month was the wettest on record for Texas and Oklahoma. This list could go on and on from Germany’s all-time record high temp to the stories this past summer of record heat in India actually melting roads.

    Why is your party so fearful of science?

    LOL! I thought you were the ones who believed in science. You write: “Time and again we are witnessing the setting of weather records be it the warmest month as Dane County experienced in November, or the most intense cyclones, etc” Interesting until you actually look up the data on cyclones and find: Average number of severe cyclones eastern pacific: 10 Western pacific: 7 Number of events in 2015 cyclone season West: 0 East: 1.

    I wonder what one will discover when one investigates the temperature data?
