Re: [californiadisasters] Will El Niño 2015 rival the strongest year on record?

Rightio.  I'm thinking in regards to skiing and what's being said about that down here. Sadly, the local ski resorts are using similar El Nino ads to promote the upcoming season.

More rain means more snowpack above the snowline and it is the NorCal snowpack that matters, not the SoCal one.

And to confirm, El Ninos usually bring heavier Sierra snowpacks?   I know for SoCal, it's usually a smaller snowpack due to more rain and less snow.

Weak to moderate El Niños more often than not do end up leaving California with below-average rainfall. Strong El Niños are another matter. Most of the time (but not all the time) they lead to very wet winter here.

Want to get so excited about this, but we've been let down so many times before with fizzled El Ninos.   Has there been any studies or %'s showing the odds of another fizzle?        The anticipation is killing me!
