El Nino a ‘no show’ for winter and spring 2020
Climatologists say the autumn warm spell affecting most of California is not indicative that an El Nino is coming.
The Climate Prediction Center says the persistent warm, dry high pressure is the result of “sub-seasonal variability”.
As for the next El Nino, there is only a 25 percent chance it would develop this winter and coming spring, forecasters said.
Conversely, there is a 70 percent chance that neither an El Nino or a La Nina would develop this winter.
The outlook is based on near-to-above average sea surface temperatures were in the east-central tropical Pacific Ocean during October.
