Ok, so here is the latest El Niño forecast. You can read all the details and learn lots of stuff, or you can just look at this map.

You see all the blue colors in the Pacific.

That tells you the water temps are higher then normal and the likelihood for another El Niño is good for 2020.

It is looking like another weak el nino year. This will actually make it 3 years in a row. Than is quite unusual.

Two years in a row are common, but not 3.

Look we get to start talking about hurricane season now, of course with warmer waters it should be another active season.

The first possible hurricane is brewing up just below Mexico:
