Storms? El Nino in Hiding to Emerge?
Seems there are great predictions for a series of storms, "Pineapple Express" on the way. The NWS predictions have been over-stated for so many years, it is hard to believe them. But, maybe this time. We are about due. Greg James, who is helping get stream flow data for Finch Creek (see webpage) provided this data from the Carmel River. This is flow data from the lower Carmel River, and you can see that the last 3 years have been dry. If the winter rains dried up now, we would be in serious drought. But, maybe....?
