recentlya&as the strongest pacific hurricane ever recorded. el nino has an 84% chance of peaking in late fall or early winter. the climate prediction center says there is a 95% chance that these conditions will last through the winter, graduauay weakening through spring 2016. here in iowa, that often means above-normal temperatures. cold weather still happens, but extreme cold is generally less severe and less frequent. snow tends to be lighter too. e last two strong el nino years in 1982 and 1997 gave iowans warm temperatures and less snow. snow. but here's where i have a little different take on el nino than the weather service. several very cold iowa winters occurred during el nia episodes including the winters of 1976-1977, 1977- 1978 and more recently 2009- 2010. in other wowos, el nia does not guarantee a warm winter, but tends to shift the probabilities in that direction.
direction.this year's global sea surface temperatures o not resemble those of the warm el nino wininrs. the data i'm looking at points to the colder el nino's of 1963 and 2009. those years in iowa both had warm october's that carried into much of november. then the pattern abruptly turned cold and wintry come december and january. i'm leaning heavily on those analogs to shape my forecast. while there's no sure way of knowing, i think this winter in eastern iowa has a good ance of being g lder than what noaa is predicting with at least average snow and normal precipitation. i'm expecting our heaters and snow shovels willget their fair share of work. my sense is that this year's el no will be more of a foe than a friend. as the saying
