Study: Climate Change Will Make El Niño/La Niña Impacts Stronger

This article discusses how climate change will likely affect El Niño/La Niña. El Niño could bring heavier rains to the Gulf Coast in the years ahead.

The recurring climate patterns known as El Niño or La Niña will lead to stronger storms and wildfires as the planet warms, according to a new study from the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

In an El Niño period, Pacific Ocean temperatures are warmer than usual, bringing cooler, wetter weather to Texas. The opposite happens with La Niña, which leads to hotter, drier weather.
