Will we see more droughts in 2010 ? I havent seen or heard of rains in most places across India in the past few months. Will the monsoon start normally from May or will it get delayed or give only few rains
Since the Pacific is a heat reservoir that drives wind patterns around the world, the change in its temperature alters global weather. An El Nino is defined by ocean surface temperatures rising by more than 0.5 degrees Celsius above the average. This El Nino is well beyond that, according to the Climate Prediction Center of the US National Weather Service. "Sea surface temperatures remain +0.5 to +1.5 above average across much of the equatorial Pacific Ocean," the centre reported last week. Observations and dynamical model forecasts indicate El Nino conditions will continue to intensify and are expected to last through the northern hemisphere winter of 2009-10. . Yes, from the above it is obvious Drought has to be faced in 2010.
