Mike Clifford Posted August 25, 2009 Report Share Posted August 25, 2009 Granted, we are only approaching a "late summer" pattern, but eventually you know it's going to happen. For those of us that have never really found a steady pattern during the Fall/Autumn months..... What are you throwing, and what segments of the river are going to produce as the water temperature begins to drop? If you are new to the club or message boards, be sure to chime in as well! Fresh ideas are always welcome. Fly/Spin...share equally. A light at the end of the tunnel? We may be looking at a moderate winter! "A majority of the model forecasts for the Niño-3.4 SST index (Fig. 6)suggest El Niño will continue to strengthen. While there is disagreement on the eventual strength of El Niño, nearly all of the dynamical models predict a moderate-to-strong El Niño during the Northern Hemisphere Winter 2009-10. A strengthening El Niño during the next few months is also suggested by the recent westerly wind event in the western equatorial Pacific, which can lead to additional anomalous warmth across the central and east-central equatorial Pacific during the next two months. Therefore, current conditions and model forecasts favor the continued development of a weak-to-moderate strength El Niñointo the Northern Hemisphere Fall 2009, with the likelihood of at leasta moderate strength El Niño (3-month Niño-3.4 SST index of +1.0oC or greater) during the Northern Hemisphere Winter 2009-10."
