Super El Nino causing weather anomalies worldwide | Farm Press Blog

Super El Nino causing weather anomalies worldwide | Farm Press Blog: Weather scientists now say this year’s “extreme” El Ni�o weather phenomenon is the strongest ever recorded, which could mean more abnormal winter weather for all of North America.

The West, which has suffered major drought in recent years, could see significant flooding, much of the Southwest could be colder than normal with bigger snowfalls, while large areas of the Mid-South and northeast have been experiencing warmer than normal weather. Skiers in the eastern states are already complaining of the “snow drought,” thanks to warm temperatures now forecast into January, while moisture-laden storms are dumping snow on ski areas in the western states.
