The science theme tonight is Modokis for which we, to a large extent, thank JAMSTEC. We will also cover the mature and declining phase of this quasi-La Nina which NOAA recently, just as the quasi-La Nina was entering the decline phase, declared "La Nina Conditions Apply" which was eerily similar to the call reversed a week later of the El Nino of 2014/2015. This raises questions. The late call, which itself was debatable, could simply be a debatable interpretation that should have been made two months earlier, a rush to take credit, or something much more concerning. Of course we will tonight also cover the forecasts for the U.S. and World. Lots to cover for a week without a major NOAA data release.
