Borgioli forecasts a high-end moderate to low-end strength El Nino that will likely peak between December and February. This will likely bring above average rainfall to the valley and southern California during this period and then decrease to average or slightly above average precipitation levels for late winter through early spring.
The seasons average mean temperatures are expected to be above average. However, cold spells are to be expected. Potential signals for cold spells can usually be spotted about 7 to 14 days in advance.
