This is happening exactly as I've been saying it would.
You and me both. I'm glad I'm not the only one who said that the predicted effects from El Niño were nothing more than huge exaggerations. Turned out we were right, and all the so called meteorological experts at NOAA/NWS were dead wrong, as well as the news media (but of course, they won't admit it). Back in December, I started a thread in the Weather forum about this. Feel free to read and post on it if you wish.

El Niño is essentially a big hype over nothing

In my observation, the El Nino effects did arrive. They're just skirting CA to a great extent, due to a stubborn high pressure front over the state. Even so, rain has got through, it's been raining in the Bay Area, and snowfall in the Sierras is at a good level. El Nino hit the NW in a big way last November like a typhoon, and has been prolific there. I don't know about points south of CA.

The remaining area of elevated SSTs is now mostly around the Date Line. Very little warm water is left near South America. Significantly, a major volume of colder than normal water is now entrained in the subsurface equatorial countercurrent, on its way toward Ecuador and eventually us.

Out of curiosity, is this a normal amount of time between oscillations from warm to cold water in the Pacific? I'm not super familiar with that aspect of the El Nino/La Nina cycles, but I naively thought El Nino's had longer periods of effects than this one did.

So... this effects El Nino for CA how, exactly? And more importantly, do forecasters think this effect will continue to diminish the remainder of our Winter rain opportunities? Obviously, February has been disappointing after the big rains earlier in the season.
