Summary- The basic pattern consists of the tendency for troughing near and over northcentral and N Calif. A pool of unusually cold water off the coast of central and N Calif, while warmer than normal sea surface temperatures are W and SW of SOCAL. The sea surface temperature anomaly (SSTA) pattern in the central N Pacific is strong and persistent enough to continue the tendency for WSW flow towards N Calif and troughing near or just W of Oregon into early June. El Niño has developed, and is already interrupting the transition to the warm season. A typical moderate to strong El Niño anomaly pattern is expected to develop per the current SSTA pattern and the NMME (North American Multi-Model Ensemble): time frame- later in the summer and autumn.
