Is a storm a-coming to California?

They’re hoping:

The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center said Thursday that all computer models are predicting a strong El Niño to peak in the late fall or early winter. A host of observations have led scientists to conclude that “collectively, these atmospheric and oceanic features reflect a significant and strengthening El Niño.”

Certainly California needs it.  On the other hand, apparently even a mega-El Nino won’t fix California’s drought problem, but every little bit helps, you know? And on the gripping hand… the researchers and people quoted in that article left themselves a lot of wiggle room. So I guess we’ll see if it rains.

  1. It wouldn’t matter if we had an ArkStorm (like the 1861 event that entirely flooded the central valley)…

    We have only had a 20% average deficit per year. Droughts are caused by nature. Water shortages are caused by crazed liberal beasties.
