  • Throughout the fall and winter, El Nino is expected to intensify and most likely reach its peak intensity in the moderate to strong category.

According to NOAA, there is an 81% likelihood that the storm will be that intense between November and January.

Both El Nino and La Nia often reach their heights in the late fall or early winter before diminishing the following spring.

  • According to NOAA, there is a 1 in 5 probability that the current El Nino will become "historically strong," comparable to episodes in 2015–16 and 1997–98. 

El Nino generally has a greater impact on global weather patterns the stronger it gets.
