2017 EL Nino & Strong Hurricanes?
According to many weather forecasting agencies and scientists 2017 is shaping up to be a potential strong El Nino year that could contribute to a longer and stronger Atlantic Hurricane season too.
2016 El Nino in Northern California brought heavy rains and a deep snow pack to the Sierra Mountains. Last year's El Nino rains ended California's four year drought.
Pacific waters near the equator continue to warm which builds the El Nino effect. Weather indicators in the tropics are alerting meteorologists about a potential record setting hurricane season.
