We believe the Nino gives us better wind in Belize. Last winter was not good at all.l

I'm not an expert, just a newly informed dunce. The sea surface temperature (sst) in the east Pacific ocean zone that they use to measure for el nino, rose in November from 0.5 degrees C above average to 1.5 above average, which takes this el nino from mild to moderate. Still could strengthen further. Aparently will soon be an announcement from the gov. science agencies on predictions. Typically, it weakens any east to west wind patterns, like the trade winds.
