BREAKING: El Nino Effects Will Show Themselves By November 19th, 2018; Storm Pattern Starts


Been watching the long range for awhile now and hence my forecast of 0.5 to 1.5″ of rain in Los Angeles for the month.  This looks on track as my further long range numbers value the storm window to be in the area even around the Thanksgiving travel period.  Read on for details …

The November 2018 forecast I released here at Southern California Weather Force ( Click To Read That ) went as followed; “Generally the 1960s-1970s era was really good for precipitation in our region and is something I am highly leaning toward this season. We already are slightly below average for the season with a slightly above average October 2018 having the majority of the rain. So with this now being a weak to moderate El Nino and gaining strength each week, it would make sense to push November to have a number of rainfall events in our region, mixed with some offshore flow.”

“My gut is telling me dry up through November 19th for the most part.”

I am seeing the Pacific Storm Track dipping down into our region once again, without the aid of cutoff lows.  These are actually polar jet stream induced storm systems so they will have the dynamics for heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, mountain snow, and gusty frontal zone winds.  This El Nino is now a weak to moderate El Nino and officially my numbers continue to climb through December into moderate El Nino strength.  The effects of a moderate El Nino is good for our area for the drought.. but sadly very very bad for the fire zones as major flooding is expected.  I will release my final El Nino forecast in article and video form by next week.

This shouldn’t just be one storm system.  This is a polar jet influenced pattern and thus it will bring a number of them through starting near November 19th and even going passed Thanksgiving.  If you do have travel plans I highly expect you to continue monitoring my forecasts for future updates.

So there we have it … a number of my models are continuing to show the increase in storm probabilities for Southern California with the first of this season’s storms arriving between the 19th and the 22nd.
