Don't you just LOVE climate mode#3.

It looks like the much vaunted weak El Nino caused by the switch on of the mode last April has finally arrived during the S. Hemisphere summer.

Was not as nasty as the strong El Nino of 1997-98, but still appears to be able to produce those famous Hueco floods. This one appears to have been a relatively narrow squall line typical of mode#3, no monsoon as yet...

Watch out for fat cacti in full bloom in the next few months.

Have a nice day: Ag
