A story about El Nino, from Daily Kos:


The weekly average equatorial Pacific ocean sea surface temperature in was 3 degrees or greater (5.4 degrees F) above normal in the key region from 170 degrees west to 120 degrees west for the first time on record.

Tropical Pacific water temperatures are shockingly hot. Last week equatorial Pacific water temperatures averaged 3 degrees Celsius above normal for the first time ever in the key Niņo 3.4 region. The previous weekly high Niņo 3.4 value of 2.8 degrees was tied last week with Nov. 28, 1997. The Niņo 3.4 region, used to measure the strength of an El Niņo ranges from 170W to 120W from 5 degrees north to 5 degrees south of the equator. If temperatures continue to rise, or plateau for a few more weeks, this will be the strongest El Niņo in history.
