Hopes rise for a strong El Niño to ease California drought — Across Southern California, this month has been decidedly cooler and wetter. San Diego had its wettest May in 94 years, and Los Angeles saw nearly four times its average rainfall. This month, the San Diego Padres were forced to call a rain delay — only the fifth time that has happened in Petco Park’s 11-year history. Even the Mojave Desert is running as much as 5 degrees cooler than normal. Rong-Gong Lin II and Rosanna Xai in the Los Angeles Times$ — 5/28/15
