How Will El Niño Affect Our Region?
El Niño is all over the news lately, but how will this affect our current drought situation. Federal officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and meteorologists say a strong El Nino is in progress and likely to last for months. However, the prospect of drought-busting rainfall is not a guarantee this winter. We will still need to keep conserving water as well as maintaining storm preparedness this fall/winter.
The National Weather Service and the Department of Water Resources created a short video with a brief explanation of the El Niño phenomenon and its history with Northern California.
