driscoll has more from tonight's board of supervisors meeting... jaclyn. 3 3 larry, supervisor jeremy taylor has proposed closing the prairie hills annex because of its age and structural issues. 3 the building is approximately 100 years old. the county is paying more than four dollars per square foot on energy alone... all adding up to over a million dollars in the next ten years.taylor says this is not only a waste of funds, but that money could be used for something more efficient such as expanding the jail at the law enforcement center. 3 "i advocated tonight that we spend a minimal amount of cost on someththg that is very viable and that is thehe expansion n our law enforcement center. we will either put that money intoton expansion rather than the wasteful way that we're popoing money into prairie hills currently."the board unanimously agreed to spend 12 thousand dollars on a study to determine whether the jail can structurally handle a new
agenda... woodbury county is moving forward with becoming the first all l-e-d lit county in iowa. tonight, supervisors were able to see the new bulbs that were chosen and hear about some of the factors that were considered when choosing them. 3 "one of the determining factors for the court house building for instance was historical and architectural. we wanted to make sure that we were doing the best type of lighting that would have matched what could have originally been used." 3 the supervisors accepted a 522 thousand dollar bid for the purchase of the materials. they will be taking out bids for installation costs in the future.next week, they should have all of the contractor bids back and will be deciding on approvals for constractor installations. 3
again tomorrow ahead of a mid- week cold front. late wednesday into thursday we will see a that front move through the area. this will bring us a chance of showers overnight with a few rumbles of thunder and rain for thursday. this front will also bring us the chance of seeing slowly falling temperatures throughout the afternoon. heading into weekend, we should see plenty of sunshine, but temperatures will stay pretty close to normal for this time of year with highs staying in the 50's friday and saturday.>> 3 3 the warm waters of el nino have already caused unusual weather this fall... like the
strongest pacific hurricane on record. tonight siouxland news meteorologist cat taylor shows usushat impactctl nino will havavon us *latererthis winter. 3 (**take e **)catatarophic cific hurricanes...flash floods ananmudslides in california.a.bleaching of coral reefs across the globe... massive fish kills, famine, and animals showing up in strange places...these are just a few impacts of el nino. but what does it mean for *us* here in siouxland? (**take sot**)"during el nino eplained part 1, i explained the mechanics of el nino. but in case you missed it. here's a refresher. during el nino the trade winds can cut off or even reverse, causing warm water to slosh back to our side of the pacific ocean. now when that happens the subtropical jet dominates, causing the polar jet to move much farther north keeping siouxland warm. i talked with mike gillispie, a hydrologist from the national weather service in sioux falls, south dakota, and he's going to tell us what we can expect here i siouxland is winter."(**take
sot**)"generally across siouxland there are etty strong correlations of seeing above normal temperatures dung the winter months. that's a very consjstent pattern, it doesn't happen every time but with these last several strong el niqo's we've had, the last three that were similar what we're expecting this wintererwere all very much h above normal temperature wise across e regioio"(**take vo**)gillispie says that while we e will most likely be warmer than average, precipitation is ststl up in the air. (**take sot**) "precipitation could go either way. you look at the last three we've had one that was wet, one that was dry, and one that was normal."(**take vo**) but warm temperatures come with a caveat... (**take sot**) "with the warmer temperatures that are probable this winter we also have to look at the precipitation types we might be seeing. warmer temperatures might lead to increased chances of seeing freezing rain and icing events farther north than what we normally
see in the middle of winter. getting up into the siouxland area you might have an increased chance of seeing more freezing rain events. also the snow fall may not end up being as much as normal." (**take vo**)one of the reasons why it is really hard to nail down a precipitation forecast is that there are more factors at play than just el nino... (**take sot**)"it's a very strong indicator and it's a very strong value of el nino this year, but there are other factors that come into play."(**take vo**)so all in all, it's probable we are looking at a warm winter. that explaines el nino and it's impacts on siouxland in a nutshell. i'm meteologist cat taylor, siouxland d news. 3 a siouxland man has won a half-millili dollar prize in ththsouth dakota lottery.y.cody peterson of sergeant bluff is the first person to win the 500-thousand dollar topopprize in the "money... money... money" scratch ticket lottery game.peterson bought the winning ticket at cubby's convenience store in dakota dunes.peterson took a one time payout... collecting 375
