6:31 pm
ground near sierra at tahoe. we're about to start feeling the effects of the strongest el nino on record. kpix 5 meteorologist paul deanno with the three things you need to know about this winter and beyond. >> reporter: we do not have a crystal ball but we do have past history which is very wet. we also have computer forecast models which are also very wet. both paint the same picture for this winter. two of the wettest winters in the past 100 years have one thing in common, both happened during a very strong el nino. it's only happened twice, until this year. as of right now, this current el nino event is the strongest in modern history but these are just numbers and numbers don't fill reservoirs. rain does. snow melt does. will we actually start to end this drought? all of our research points to one answer: yes! here's the first point to
6:32 pm
remember. it will likely start to rain more in december but nowhere close to what we had last year. it rained more than three inches on december 11 alone and the month ended in double digits in san francisco. the other two decembers in very strong el nino events were markedly drier. both 1982 and 1997 saw less than three inches of rain for the whole month. the dry theme will likely change abruptly in january. that's when the el nino pattern of an active and supercharged subtropical jet stream really gets going both the future predictions and past history saying the beginning of 2016 will likely be very wet. and that's point number 2. plan on a lot of rain in january and february. if you lived here in 1998, you'll likely remember the first two months of that year when 27 inches of rain fell. that is triple what we typically get. if anything close to that happens again, it will be quite interesting for the biggest sporting event on earth which happens february 7 in santa
6:33 pm
clara. lost in all the talk about winter is what is going to happen this upcoming spring? most long-range computer forecast models call for above average rain and mountain snowfall well beyond february. that's exactly what happened in the spring of 1983 and again in 1998. above average snow and rain into april or may. that's our third and final point to remember. el nino's rains may not end until just before next summer. none of this -- none of this is a guarantee. the weather will do what the weather wants to do but el nino is the strongest leading indicated their we have. three takeaways, increased december rainfall but likely not as much as last year. january and february, that's the strongest signature. the wettest weather will likely happen then. and it has the potential to be very wet. finally wetter than average is also likely to continue into spring. we are talking march and april and perhaps even may. back in 1998, we had four
6:34 pm
inches of rainfall in san francisco in may. we'll talk about a forecast for the next several days, of course the cold is front and center now. we'll have that coming up. thank you. flooding from el nino could change california farming in a big way. reporter lee martinez on why some central valley farmers plan to put their crops under water. >> basically on each side of the vine, you have a half gallon emitter. so every hour, this vine will get one gallon of water. >> reporter: san joaquin valley growers praise drip irrigation systems for conserving water but a fresno farmer says there may be an even better way to grow crops. using el nino to do it. >> when i read the story about this the other day, it's kind of the first time i had seen it. it made a lot of sense. >> reporter: flood irrigation is not new. but using floodwater is. >> falling from the sky is just as good as pumping from the ground. it's actually better. >> reporter: don from fresno says in 2011, he started collecting storm runoff in canals. he would pump the stormwater
6:35 pm
into his fields from january to may. cameron says the water is clean snowpack from the sierra. grapevines love it. why dos it help crops? >> because the flooding of the ground makes the ground colder and the colder the ground is, the more dormant the vine goes and more productive the following year. >> reporter: craig doesn't have canals to collect el nino rains this year but the california almond board is looking for growers who do. the board said the floodwaters can help recharge the aquifer and wants farmers to join the research project. because of its soil, flood irrigation would work very well in lodi but not necessarily elsewhere in california. >> you get way out east in the low day appalachian and you get into the more clay soils you won't have that percolation available because clay doesn't allow water to settle through and go through down to the ground water aquifer. >> reporter: elsewhere ledbetter says he is anxious to see if keeping crops under
6:36 pm
water this winter will keep central valley farming afloat next summer. >> that was lee martinez reporting. at the state capital lawmakers and regulators are discussing whether growers will have it rights to rain to irrigate their feels. still ahead red and gold. >> what some might consider an upside to the 49ers dismal record this season. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:39 pm
