El Nino, La Nina?
      Fri Jul 06 2012 08:06 PM

Heard the pro's say were going into a new El Nino, so I tried to do more research. One web site said El Nino means less hurricanes because of high winds overhead. Another site says it doesn't really matter. We'll have hot Atlantic seas so we'll likely have more hurricanes. Another site said 2009 the NHC dropped the hurricane prediction because of El Niino. What are the thoughts on the pro's here?

(A good post, but it probably fits better in this Forum.)
