yes Mark they are  great I have them listed on my weather page just not the latest version

Randall, you are running version 2.5.18, which is so old school, whilst I am running 2.7.1, with benefits of many cutting edge improvements, such as:
  • The gauges scale more accurately
  • The Wind Rose gauge now has a label on the odometer so you can tell you are looking at miles (of wind run)
  • The Solar gauge now has a sector to record 'sun is shining'
  • The js files are now more http/https friendly
  • The gauges now support JQuery version to 3.2.1 in place of the obsolete 1.11
  • The Internai Temperature gauge now displays min and max temperatures and time they occurred
  • It is now much simpler to change the Indoor Temperature or Humidity gauge to display the data from an additional temp/hum sensor
  • The gauges are newer and shinier so your wife will more easily appreciate all the time you spend updating them
Update your files, brother; you'll be glad you did.

It seems to me that at least for Northern California, El Niņo now brings droughts while La Niņa events seem to intensify atmospheric rivers.  So depending on where you

Just the kind of news we do not need. I'd rather hear about the Buick.

Dear viewers of the El Niņo or a La Niņa soap opera,

The July update didn't make any headlines so I missed it until now.  However the forecast continues to be for a El Niņo event for this autumn and winter.  Here is the link:

http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_disc_jul2018/ensodisc.shtml

The summary reads as follows: "ENSO-neutral is favored through Northern Hemisphere summer 2018, with the chance for El Niņo increasing to about 65% during fall, and to about 70% during winter 2018-19"

Wikipedia has a list of regional impacts based on overall research:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Ni%C3%B1o#Regional_impacts

According to the same Wikipedia article, the recent El Niņo events are listed here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Ni%C3%B1o#Occurrences

The last two are the end of 2009-10 and 2014-15.  My station went up in October 2009, so I don't have the 2009-10 winter.  The 2014-15 event was the worst drought episode recorded by my station.

On the other hand, according to Wikipedia the La Niņa events are:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Ni%C3%B1a#Occurrences

That includes most of 2010 and 2016-17 wet years.  That is consistent with the overall observation that La Niņa events bring additional rainfall to Northern California:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Ni%C3%B1a#North_America

It seems to me that at least for Northern California, El Niņo now brings droughts while La Niņa events seem to intensify atmospheric rivers.  So depending on where you are in the Western United States, this could be another tough and dry winter.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

Thanks for posting. The drought conditions are making us all nervous in the west.
