Next ENSO Update: August 7
NOAA's National Weather Service indicates El Niño is likely to emerge in next few months. Forecasters favor a weak-to-moderate event. Typical El Niño impacts in the U.S. include above-average rainfall in the West and suppressed hurricane activity in the East, although neither is guaranteed and largely dependent on El Niño's strength.  For information on what an El Niño event might mean for your region, follow our ENSO blog and connect with us on social media.
