More signs showing El Nino is developing

AMES, I.A.(WNAX)- Climate observers are seeing more indications of an El Nino developing this year.

Justin Glisan is the Iowa State Climatologist.

Glisan moderated this month’s North Central Regional Climate update.

He says the change to an El Nino appears to be underway.

Glisan says they are getting a better idea of the intensity.

Past El Nino’s have led to cooler and wetter summers, with milder and less snowy winters in the northern plains.
