Scientists warn an El Niño is likely coming that could bring scorching heat to Earth

Excerpt from USA Today via MSN:

Buckle up. The world’s most influential natural weather feature is shifting gears. 

An El Niño is building along the equator in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and chances are above normal it will be a strong El Niño, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says. That could have dramatic consequences in the United States and around the globe this year and into next year.  

Climate scientists are especially concerned about the potential for hotter temperatures. Given things already are warmer than normal, they say, a strong El Niño could send global average temperatures soaring to a record high.

El Niño is a natural climate pattern. It’s counterpart, La Niña, ended over the winter after three years of disastrous weather.
