There is some growing evidence that the weak El Niño in the Pacific Ocean appears to be strengthening, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the US Department of Commerce in its 26 October reports says:
El Niño is present across the equatorial Pacific Ocean.
Sea surface temperatures (SST) were at least 1.0ºC above-average across much of the central and east-central equatorial Pacific.
Based on current observations and dynamical model forecasts, El Niño is expected to strengthen and last through Northern Hemisphere winter 2009-10.
If that happens it will be wonderful to observe how the climate sceptics react to not being able to say anymore that the world is cooling.
