El Nino to continue into the early summer

The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center has issued an updated El Niño Advisory, predicting that it will continue through June, 2010. Here is an excerpt:

For the contiguous United States, potential El Niño impacts include above-average precipitation for the southern tier of the country, with below-average precipitation in the Pacific Northwest and in the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Below-average snowfall and above-average temperatures are most likely across the northern tier of states (excluding New England), while below-average temperatures are favored for the south-central and southeastern states.
