FLORIDA WINTER RAINS ARE TYPICAL OF AN EL NINO

2014-03-28_165812

JACKSONVILLE AREA RAINFALL TOTAL TO BE ABOUT ONE INCH ON SATURDAY.

The Climate Prediction Center reports that we are in the neutral phase of El Nino/La Nina, but our colder and wetter than average winter is what frequently occurs in an El Nino winter. The CPC says there’s a 50% chance of an El Nino developing by late summer. If that occurs, the hurricane season may have fewer storms than recent years.

Jacksonville’s rainfall since January 1 has been 13.54 inches with another inch predicted between Thursday and Sunday morning. The storm track most of this winter has been over the Gulf states and up the Atlantic seaboard, with a secondary track from the Midwest and Great Lakes region into eastern Canada. Incredible winter snowfall totals  have made 2014 a difficult winter for many of our neighbors to the north!
