Ironic how we have an El Nino developing (and now there is a 70% chance for this fall and winter) but the weather patterns and atmospheric conditions across North America are saying "What El Nino?" because the weather in North America doesn't match what El Nino typically brings. The drought continues to worsen in California as it continues to sizzle and unfortunately there doesn't look to be any relief anytime soon. On the other side of the continent though, there is a lack of heat. It's interesting to note areas that are used to long lasting periods of heat just haven't had any so far this season. My relatives in Texas have also noticed there isn't any real heat in eastern Texas and the rest of the south. It is all being suppressed to the southwest but chances are you won't find a lot of Texans complaining about that! I do think this will change as we head into July and August however. Many weather experts believe that a pattern shift will occur later on during the summer for folks in the east.
Also, there are enhanced odds that the Atlantic hurricane season will be below average due to El Nino.. but all it takes is ONE so do not let your guard down!
