El Nino?

In case you doubted the near home effects of the El Nino, have a read of this article from the North Island Gazette.  If Humbolt Squid are in Port Hardy, I'm a believer we are having an El Nino year.  As to what it means for the Central Coast and Bella Coola for the winter, I am not as sure.  I've been trying to research some of the past events to determine if we would likely experience wetter, drier, warmer or colder winter, but haven't found a pattern yet.

If today and this week are the trend then let's go with wet.  Today was a dark, dreary November day. Rain all day long, at times heavy, but the freezing level very low most of the day until around 5 PM when the freezing level hit the valley bottom and it turned to wet heavy snow, which it has been doing for the early evening.
