How does El Nino affect hurricanes?



  1. 0 Votes

    An El Nino event is characterized by warmer than normal water temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean for about three to five months. In general, El Nino contributes to a greater number of eastern Pacific Ocean hurricanes and fewer Atlantic Ocean hurricanes. This is due to how the warm waters contribute to atmospheric dynamics and the optimal conditions for hurricane formation (fairly uniform winds, low vertical wind shear, moisture and heat transport, etc.)
