Wet, cool weekend will end Indian Summer

(Continued)

Somerset —

It said the western part of the United States will be warmer and drier and Florida will be colder. Weather in other parts of the country will be iffy because El Nino didn’t form as expected.
El Nino, an abnormal warming of surface ocean waters in the eastern tropical Pacific, is one part of what's called the Southern Oscillation. It affects the weather and since it didn’t form we could be warm, lukewarm or cold, take your pick.
Were it not for the woolly worms we wouldn’t have a clue. Folk wisdom holds that woolly worms can predict winter weather; the darker the fur, the colder the weather. Most woolly worms in this area are solid black, an indication of extended cold.
