It may be a pleasant winter
State Climatologist Jim Angel said he hesitates to say the weather news because of El Nino is good, because he knows some people like snow. However, he said those people are likely to be disappointed this winter.
"It's all about El Nino this winter," Angel said in an interview with the Times Record on Thursday, Nov. 12. "It's all pointing toward an increased chance of warmer temperatures. There is a tendency with past El Nino's of having less snow falls, as well."
