So yeah an el nino is officially underway in the Pacific ocean. Basically it's a slackening of the westerly winds that push warner waters west. This allows the warmer water to head back towards America and it happens once every 2-7 years.

It affects weather globally although it has harsher effects in some areas than others.

How does it affect the uk?

Well weather folk and climatologists can't really say for certain what it does to the uk weather but they pretty much all agree on a wash out summer with colder than average temperatures overall. What's new right? laugh.gif

The last el nino was in 2009 and you'll surely all remember the winter of 09/10 that the uk suffered with crippling winter weather. Well that could be on the cards again this year with lots of snow (yay).

I've already been watching some active hurricanes spinning around the Pacific, it's looking like an active year over there (though Pacific ones rarely affect land) which is a major sign of an El Nino. I must admit I'm not certain on the exact effects of it but it's a pretty huge weather event. We'll just have knock-on effects though right? As we're on the other side of the world. It'll be countries with Pacific coasts that are the most affected.

That's correct. India and south America are the worst affected. It leads to an increase in storm activity in the Pacific and surrounding land masses but reduces the number of Hurricanes in the Atlantic. There is no direct link for Europe although it does tend to look like summers are cooler and wetter than average and in the winter it's wetter than average. The temperature depends on a lot of other factors than cam potentially be affected by an El Nino.

There is little provable link between an El Niño in the Pacific and the weather across Europe, particularly in summer.

As this one will not peak until late summer, I'd argue that any impact will be after the summer and more towards autumn and winter. The long-range forecasts for this summer are for a drier, and warmer than average summer as colder than average SSTs over the N Atlantic (particularly towards Greenland) tend to favour high pressure persisting across northern Europe and therefore quiet and mainly dry conditions.

It's more than likely the Daily Express said that which basically talks bollocks!
