What is El Niño?

El Niño is not a single storm. It is a complex weather pattern caused by unusually warm temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, which can have large-scale impacts on global weather and climate. 

According to the California Coastal Commission, some models predict rainfalls of up to 300% of the average rainfall in Southern California. Meteorologists in central California and the San Francisco Bay forecast that rainfalls could be up to 200% of average. While there is no way to be certain about the severity of this winter's storms, homeowners would be prudent to prepare for the worst.
