The Econointersect Weather and Climate forecast has been updated. It also shows the economic impacts, which analysis will expand over time.
The latest reports are indicating that warm water is starting to return to the Pacific off the coast of Ecuador, a condition that produces an El Nino pattern which should be intensifying in time for next winter. The El Nino pattern is generally associated with more tropical activity in the eastern Pacific but reduced Atlantic hurricane activity, cooler and wetter for California (at least temporary relief from drought!), northern Mexico and the southern U.S. We probably should expect warmer and drier weather this coming winter across the northern U.S. and southern Canada.
