Living in Hawaii I can tell you these storms passing around us and the high ocean temps. have been causing the highest temperatures ever recorded in the state. Many of us do not have AC because we did not need it but starting last year the weather has changed and living without AC is unbearable. Also, we have the highest rainfall recorded for the state. So, for the past few months, paradise has been lost. Hope the change is not permanent.
The good news is that El Ninos are relatively short-lived, rarely lasting two years. Meanwhile, I hope you are able to get some cooling breezes.
Unfortunately, this year's El Nino brought way too much rain to us in Northeast Indiana, so something like 25% of the region's corn crop has been lost to flooding. The good new for us is that after the last two very cold winters we will hopefully see milder temperatures this coming winter, although El Nino usually brings a lot of snow (which we also had the past two winters).
It usually brings milder mid-winter temperatures. Indiana really got hit -- spring floods and a huge early summer loop of tropical moisture. Hopefully, if this event lasts into next spring, as most experts expect, it won't be as wet.
Would El Nino have had anything to do with the recent wind storm on the lower mainland of B.C.?
