LOTS OF COOL GOING AROUND!

In our neck of the woods, we had a record low of 47 Tuesday morning and a record equalling low of 52 Wednesday morning. We haven’t reached an afternoon high of 90 yet in Jacksonville this spring. This reminds me of the cool year of 1966 when we didn’t hit 90 for the first time until June 14!

With the beginning of the 2013 hurricane season just around the corner, the El Nino/La Nina outlook has been neutral since May 2012. Cooling of the eastern Pacific waters last winter made it appear that a La Nina might be forming, but the cooling trend of Pacific water retreated and the central and eastern Pacific chill has only been around 0.1 degrees Celsius below normal this spring. NOAA’s Climate Predicion Center expects the eastern Pacific to continue neutral through the end of the summer.

What’s ahead for the peak of the hurricane season in September? We may see the answer in July or August. Stay tuned!
