Experts Say La Niña Will Make Dry Season Wet
The Caribbean coast of Central America could experience a rainy and cold dry season this year, thanks to the La Niña weather phenomenon, according to meteorologists who recently gathered in El Salvador for the 23rd Forum on Climate in Central America.
This could also mean colder waters in the Pacific and intense winds, although for the most part the Pacific coast is likely to experience normal weather for the normally dry season months of December through March.
The Caribbean could break records with 25-30% more rain than average. A drop in ocean temperatures caused by the weather phenomenon La Niña is behind these changes, said Luis García, director of the Salvadoran Meteorological Service.
Experts came up with a list of recommendations for dealing with climate changes, which they plan to share with authorities from their countries.
