ENSO Meter 11-12-15

In the past El Niño events the big rain and snow months came in Jan and Feb.  We still have time to think about the possibility of some local flooding. The average winter rain fall is about 65 days. During El Niño events we have had 100 days of rain/snow events.  If you have had flooding in the past, you will have more flooding in the future. Be prepared.
