It is all over too soon. After weirding out weather all around the world, this winter’s monstrous El Niño may be on its way out. Though more data is still forthcoming, NOAA has described this year’s El Niño as at least on par with the 1997-1998 El Niño event, the strongest on record. As El Niño bids us farewell for a few years, a brief period of calm will be followed by a reactionary natural force called La Niña. Sometimes described as the anti-Niño, La Niña is expected to cool sea surface temperatures where El Niño had warmed them. The effects of such a shift may strike weather-weary humans and ecosystems with whiplash. Read the rest of El Niño is dwindling, but anti-Niño is coming for us next
