Impact Of Strongest El Nino On Record
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.
