Pacific Storm - El Nino

It seems El Nino is really finally going to have a great impact on the weather conditions off California next week.

Based on today’s forecast, please note that 12-13 meter waves are forecast to prevail just off the California coast by the middle of next week.

Regarding forecast and maps from Applied Weather Technology, this was a warning we sent routing customers, and the weather map was from our on board weather routing software BonVoyage.

The pacific will be very active, as we are in the middle an El Nino period. To see a chart, we do have a we portal weatherrouting.com, that is available to customers. Look forward to being of service.

Here is a look at the stormtrack displacement during El Nino vs. La Nina. Note the southward displacement across the North Pacific and also the stormtracks from the Gulf of Mexico northeastward off the US East Coast.
