We Could Experience much Warmer Temps this Summer
Last year and even the year before that we talked about El Nino and boy did it come, we saw one of the mildest winters this past winter. Now what, El Nino is the warming of the waters in the pacific, but what happens after the water has warmed?
After the warm has warmed, it naturally cools off this is called La Nina. Traditionally La Nina follows El Nino's and present the opposite effects of El Nino. Of course La Nina don't always follow El Nino's, in the past we've seen El Nino's that extend into the next winter or La Nina's that extend for several years. For this year most weather outlets are predicting that we'll see a La Nina arrive around Fall or Winter.
To understand what we might see this summer we have to look at last year. For 2015 we didn't see the real El Nino until mid fall and it continued through mid winter, but its effects were seen during the summer.
It brought us unseasonably low temps as you can see from the graphic from the summer of 2015. As we transitioned into the fall we started to see warmer than average temps month after month, as the El Nino arrived.
If a La Nina presents the opposite effects as a El Nino, that will mean that we will see above average temperatures this Summer. The Weather Channel already has it's overall summer prediction out.
A big difference from year to year, this will mean more days at the beach, by the pool, and cranking the AC up in your home. Traditionally this type of summer is followed by just as extremely of a winter. For your total energy needs, trust ckSmithSuperior in Central MA and Santoro Oil in Rhode Island and Southeastern MA.
