The Pacific had been in what is called a neutral state, but forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say the sea surface temperature climbed to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit above normal along a narrow band in the eastern equatorial Pacific in June.
In addition, NOAA's Climate Prediction Center said temperatures in other tropical regions are also above normal, with warmer than usual readings as much as 975 feet below the ocean surface.
In general, El Nino conditions are associated with increased rainfall across the east-central and eastern Pacific and with drier than normal conditions over northern Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
A summer El Nino can lead to wetter than normal conditions in the intermountain regions of the United States and over central Chile. In an El Nino year there tend to be more Eastern Pacific hurricanes and fewer Atlantic hurricanes.
The forecasters said they expect this El Nino to continue strengthening over the next few months and to last through the winter of 2009-2010.

But seriously, I hope it translates to a a few snow games at Mile High Stadium this season.

Great for fishing here in So Calif. Last El Nino my boat was working and we caught tons of fish. Dorado, Tuna, Yellowtail, even some wahoo!!!!

Of course I don't want any bad storms to hit, but the fishing will be great.

I just gotta get my starboard engine replaced, get a new swim deck, get some new electronics and get out there.

Hey its only 300 bucks a day in gas, whose chippin in!!!!!!

yeah, but the team also wasn't built for bad weather. Really though it doesn't seem to snow that much on Broncos games. A couple here and there but not really.

It just seems the Broncos throwing so much didn't expose teams to the altitude as much as the old broncos did. When we ran 30 times a game it seemed we really got teams gassed by end of 3rd.

I like the idea of controlling the ball more, running more, being more physical on special teams, offense, and especially defense. Maybe we can start using the home field advantage again.

Iron Clady I get the boat going and you are for sure invited. We will cruise out to Catalina, anchor up and catch some fish whilst we drink beers. Then we will get over to the harbor before I'm drunk and moor up the boat, go on land and party, then crash, then fish all day the next day and head home.

If you haven't hung out at Catalina fishing you are missing out.

We should chart a six pack with some other guys and go out.

Descanso Beach during the afternoon....El Galleon and Luau Larrys at night. Catalina rocks in an old skool kinda way.

Never been to a snow game myself (there was a couple flakes at the Seattle game where Jay Cutler had his first start...so it doesn't count).

Keep hoping it will happen one season, instead I get 38 degrees and rainy weather(Ravens MNF game) or below zero weather (Buffalo game) etc.

Neither was Oakland built to play in the snow, we had our asses handed to us.

El Nino brings us some monsoons, more water vapor to be pulled in from the gulf of California.

Should be out your way next week cutthemdown, on the beach for a week in San Diego. Drive by and egg the charger stadium on the way thru.

Yes but you have to say your sorry to the fish before you club them. The main thing is we have a few coves closed, limits on the fish, and don't mess with any of the mammals, IR elephant seals etc etc. We have some colonies that because of the marine mammal protection act have swelled from 300 to 10 thousand. The seals will steal the fish right off your hook. We used to throw m-80 at them but now thats a felony.

You can't pump your waste anymore etc, but i agree with most all those regulations. Seriously the ocean off southern Calif once you get to Catalina teaming with life.

Since the seal population has exploded people are seeing more and more white sharks and big makos.

The Blue whales are everywhere during the migration and the Calico and White Sea Bass populations doing well because of the regulations.

Now if they keep going it will ruin it but right now its still ok for the recreational fisherman.

Yeah it was humiliating.

I guess all I can say is when 2 teams, neither built for snow, anything goes. I'd like to see Broncos try to get an edge by trying to control ball again.

Make those teams with big NT have to play him tons by running it a lot and controlling the clock.

The snow stuff I think just comes down to being tough. Broncos have been soft and probably couldn't wait to get a hooker, some McDonalds and a warm fire.

My last snow game was a Monday night game vs. Joe Montana/49ers when a SNOWBALL may have interfered with Ray Wershing kicking a last second field goal to either tie or win the game. The snowballs were flying all over the stadium that game. This is before the Bronco fans got too sophisticated and quiet.

not really, it'll just erode the top soil and then grow up the vegetation/brush in the hills so there can be a nasty fire season next year.

Over 300 pounds for sure not that its a real threat, but the backside is shark infested.
