El Niño

El Niño. is characterized by unusually warm water temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. El Niño’s storm track affects the location of jet streams. Instead of coming ashore in the Pacific Northwest, the southern jet stream hits California, with increased rainfall and accompanying floods, landslides and coastal erosion. The effects are variable across the state and are more predictable in Southern California.
