Default El Nino declared by NOAA.

Looks like it may last longer than was being predicted too. Global temperatures, in this weak El Nino, will be very interesting.

And rising.
A few spot values from pixel counting for more recent values to feed
into the rolling quarter means.
2019year-day, SST anomaly
91, +0.93 deg C
112, +0.93
119, +0.91
(but the first few +2 degree bin pixels in the output yesterday,119)
off the twice weekly NOAA global SST nightime anomaly output chart,
for the "El Nino " sea-area defined here
Just because NOAA declares it is somewhat irrelevant, its been affecting
things since (NH) autumn of last year, but it could have been just a
short term blip for NOAA purposes.
See the exagerated (because only surface waters affected) on the Jason3
altimetry data for global sea level rise.
Interestingly is it/will it ? be affecting global sea-ice
(removing seasonality option ,as relatively greater than ENSO effects)
because of the recent years relative lack of and degraded strength of MYI.
Charctic shows the sea-ice deficit is truly global, affecting Arctic and
Antarctic at the same time, but opposite seasons.
And not be a short-term amelioratable exageration like apparent
overplayed SLR? Fascinating we can observe this sort of stuff from the
comfort of our non-floating, non-melted armchairs.
