While it would help the duck hunting a lot, there is a nice ripe El Nino going on in the Pacific. This generally means warmer winter weather north of us and stormy weather here.


A strong Nino would mean a very high likelihood of warm and wet. However, there are some signs that this may only be a weak Nino thru the winter months. Weak Ninos can be great if you like cold and snow. I've also heard some talk from the weather folks about the lack of solar activity recently. We'll see how it all plays out. I'm going to cut a little extra wood just in case.

yep, that is true. i remember around ten years ago we went out on a charter boat from long beach to catalina and to san clemente islands, caught lots of blue fins and yellowtails. its funny youll see school of yellow tails under a pile of trash floatin in middle of nowhere.
but i think this winter could be bad, just be ready for anything!

I hope it is long and cold. I've been wanting to try tracking deer in snow for many years but haven't been able to because we haven't had much snow during deer season in mid. TN. The winters have been awfully warm lately.

I heard that! I haven't seen a good snow forever! It seemed like it snowed at least a little bit every year when I was a kid. Way back in the 80's & 90's....LOL

I remember back when I was a kid, we'd always be worried that school would have to run an extra week or two in the summer because we were constantly running out of snow days.

Now, for the last several years, I've noticed local schools taking snow days when they really don't need to, just because they've got so many extra left over at the end of the winter.

Yup, it's been several years since we've had a good cold winter with lots of snow. I tend to agree with Stillinscrubs that we're more likely to have a mild, wet one this year due to the El Nino though.

I stopped trusting "old timer signs" many moons ago when I realized that every time I asked an old timer about the upcoming winter, they ALWAYS predict a bad one.

A fun website to follow for Pacific water temps. I don't plan a tuna trip without watching this one for awhile.
