Thread: El Nino

  1. #11
    El Nino may be quite a limiting factor when it comes to hurricane season, however, I believe El Nino winters on the east coast are typically warm, rainy, and abundant with swell. I remember the El Nino of 97/98 and it was one of the best winters I have seen on the east coast (of course twelve year old memories are probably unreliable especially considering i was like ten then). However, at that time period I was living in New England so El Nino may have different consequences down here during the winter. Either way though it couldn't get any worse than last winter. All in all im pretty sure El Nino usually means a wave rich winter for both coasts. I may be wrong, anyone know?

    That's right, I remember summer/fall 97' did suck. The only hurricane swell we got that year was from Erica, but from late fall to late spring 97/98 was full of swell. If I understand correctly, during El Nino winters the jet stream stays further south, meaning alot of low pressure systems can form in the south-east and ride up the coast.

    That is correct. And the NorthWest US stays dry for once. Socal actually gets wet because the jetsream drops over here. W go from 10 inches of annual rain fall to about 30 inches in a Nino Winter... Lets hope it is like 98.... Every Pier from IB to B.C. got beat down by swell after swell after wonderful swell. They had to rebuild the OB pier that summer. That sucker got trashed...

    You have no clue to how pisspoor our winter was last year. Worst winter ever. I wouldn't be that envious of us.

    I work as a TA at UNCW and have to grade freshman papers all the time. I thought I had read some crazy crap before but that blows me away. Is that kid in a mental hospital or something? My favorite part is "like everything Spanish it is dangerous" or whatever he said. However, I think I truly understand El Nino now. Thanks for enlightening me.
