Been blogging about El Nino recently, and you've probably heard about it on the news. Today, NOAA has upgraded the "El Nino Watch" to an "El Nino Advisory". This simply means that we are in the early stages of an El Nino and that it is likely to persist through the Winter. Usually, this is good news for Southern Colorado, as it increases our chances for above normal moisture. El Nino is the abnormal warming of the ocean waters in the equatorial eastern Pacific. The last El Nino was a weak one, and occurred in late 2006 and early 2007.
