I remember '97. It really felt like it rained every day that year. I don' think there was one area around here that din't flood at some point.

Well, on the plus side at least we will be rid of that one asshole with the graph about how the earth has been cooling since 1997.

The usual sentence ends with "...clowns, a tub of Crisco and a Bible in reverse Latin".

Yay! Rain on the West Coast!

Massive potential for this one if that shiat makes it to the surface.  A lot of water more than 10 degrees F hotter than normal.

in Seattle we have had record rain fall and record high temperatures.

We've had the anual average rainfall in just 4 months.  back in '97 it rained for 100 days.

the first week in January weather forcasters said we could expect a drought during the first 9 months of 2014.

Nope.

Doubt it. The fact it hasn't been cooling since 1997 has done little to stop them, so why would this?

The aggregate prediction for an El Nino to develop that I saw looks around 2 chances in 3.

We've had two years since 1998 that were hotter than 1998 -- the previous record high year.

I really hate that shiat, I give it one more year before AMS takes them out to the woodshed and threatens to pull Broadcast Meteorologist certifications to anyone who uses the Weather Channel made up bullshiat names.

Problem is when the soil is so dry is can't retain anything you'll have some serious problems. Hopefully you'll get the rains gradually, but my guess is you're going to be dealing with flooding and landslides.

Oh, and let it rain. Cali needs it.

They're already predicting that western Washington is going to be humid and freaking hot as hell this summer. I'm not going to like this season...

Seattle/Tacoma area. A few years ago we were easily pushing into the 100s, and it's looking like it'll be similar this year too.

Yeah, and it sucks ass because most apartments and a lot of homes don't have central air, so 100 degree summers are not fun. People were lining up in front of the Home Depots waiting for AC units deliveries to come in.

Submitter, you meant: El Niño, which means is Spanish for "the niño," to once again interrupt our recent trend of predictable, pleasant weather

I can speak for everyone in Calgary after the last few months...  we welcome glorious El Nino.

San Francisco is looking to set a new record high tomorrow. Maybe by 4 degrees. My sister-in-law in the Inland Empire reports that they could get into the 100s tomorrow. But The Nino so far is not bringing rain to California. Because of the Sonny Bono copyright extension. Revoke the extension and the DMA and the rain she could come. And leave 1 million dollars in small bills at a place to be determined later. Out of state. ... wait ... east of the Mississippi ...in Arkan ... sorry ... Kentucky.

The connection she is broken.

I think you'll find record cold and record snow fit very well into the predicted results of any human accelerated climate change.

Do people like you see "climate change" in an article about something and immediately assume the whole article is bullshiat? Do you not see how changing weather can cause famines, droughts, make bush fires more common, increase the severity of storms and other weather phenomena, and things that don't help the climate, like deforestation can increase the chances of diseases usually deep in jungles and forests from finding closer proximity to humans? And yes, warm air holds more moisture, so if the air is warmer there's a chance there will be more rainfall, so flooding can be a consequence as well. Do you not see how the whole point isn't that it will definitely cause it to be hotter everywhere, or cause it to be colder everywhere, but different places will suffer different effects, which is why saying "it snowed" isn't a good rebuttal. This really should be stuff you learn when you're 7.

wait there's a new term now?  Of course it is.  From the same people that gave you Post traumatic stress disorder.  I liked it better when it was Shell Shock.
