One interesting thing that Matt didn't mention during his excellent TV appearance is that when El Nino occurs, it tends to raise the earth's globally averaged temperature. Therefore, it is not surprising that the warmest year on record occurred during the strong El Nino of 1997/98.

hat's not known at this stage is how strong the El Nino will be this winter. Let's hope it's weak enough to give us a couple of Fed shutdowns this winter.

Recent El Ninos have not been kind to us as far as snowstorms are concerned. That '97/'98 El Nino was nothing but a series of wind-driven rainstorms around here. The best weather was in the fair, mild periods between the storms.
