Early Summer El Nino + Global Warming Likely to Set Heat Recordsreports Andrea Thompson at Climate Central. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting that an El Nino weather cycle could start between May and July.

Some experts are predicting it will be the strongest El Nino in decades. Check out this great video El Nino 2014: What Are the Odds? to find out more.
