El Niño Weakens A Tad, But We Won’t Feel That For Months
WASHINGTON — Meteorologists see signs that the super El Nino is weakening ever so slightly, but they caution months will pass before people in the Americas will feel it.
The World Meteorological Organization said Thursday that El Nino, a warming of the Pacific that changes weather worldwide, has passed its peak based on specific temperature, wind, and atmospheric pressure conditions.
That’s technically true, but Michelle L’Heureux, lead El Nino forecaster for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, said there’s a few months lag time before the changes affect the Americas.
She said this El Nino remains strong.
