ENSO: Reviewing the Impact of the Current El Niño
08 March 2016
Last week, the JLT Re Catastrophe Analytics & Services team published an extensive review of 2015 natural catastrophes, highlighting the strong role El Niño played in global extreme weather.
Following on this report, the team has released a discussion guide reviewing the impact of the current El Niño event on severe weather prospects for the Spring of 2016, available here.
Key regional impacts include:
- A continuation of above normal prospects of tornado activity for the Gulf Coast and Florida through spring.
- Increased severe weather prospects in mid to late spring across the Northern portions of the Plains, Great Lakes extending into New England.
- Suppressed tornado and hail activity from central Texas through the Dixie Alley corridor
