For the first time in months, the Shark Oil Barometer turned cloudy yesterday. It’s not as cloudy today. This is just another signal for the move to the winter storm patterns. Recently, the Pacific Ocean off the coasts of California and Mexico has warmed. At the same time, farther south near the equator, a weak El Nino is underway. I think both of these situations would enhance out precipitation outlook. The question is whether El Nino will hold, or not. More this weekend.
