There is some evidence that the El Niņo effect this summer probably won't be as pronounced. In fact, I'm willing to bet it won't even be much of a factor in the late season. The climate prediction center has hinted at revising down the eariler projections of an event happening in August. The hot water anomalies that were starting to pop up have just disappeared in the last month or so. This just drives up the chances for something to occur this year. Like we need that.
So go forth with wave mongering and get it broken in. With too many teases I think that will show up in our early season this year, it's going to be wild for it -- I still don't expect anything to develop into a named storm early, though. Well even so, I still love it, as long as they stay away from land.
