Odds of a ‘strong’ El Nino put at 71 percent
SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Signs of an El Nino are growing stronger setting up the possibility of a wet winter in Southern California.

The Pacific Ocean phenomenon first appeared earlier this summer. The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) said Thursday September 14th there is “greater than a 95 percent chance” El Nino will persist January through March 2024 in the Northern Hemisphere.

The odds of a ‘strong’ El Nino are at 71 percent.
The CPC cautions “a strong El Niño does not necessarily equate to strong impacts locally.”

The current rainfall year which ends September 30th, according to some weather-reporting agencies, has precipitation totals above average for most of the Inland Empire.
