1)  El Nino has been re-energized and should strengthen in the short term

 2)  Our rainy April is likely partly because of the strengthening El Nino

 3)  May and June are more likely than not to remain wetter than normal

 4)  July and August are tilted the other way and could be dry (like last year).

 5)  Another quiet hurricane season is forecast

 The above are comments by David Zierden, Florida State Climatologist.

Here’s an link to an informal discussion of the strengthening El Nino and what it means to our area this summer.
