Winter 2014/15 will mostly likely be a weak El Nino winter. NOAA has finally answered the question we’ve all be wondering in Northern California:
“What does a weak El Nino mean for Northern California?”
This video answers that question basically by saying that they have no idea what is going to happen. Great. The real take away is that El Nino doesn’t mean above average precipitation. Not what we skiers and riders wanna hear.
That said, some weak El Nino years are damn good in California. Just look at 1978 in the graph above.
