North Central Michigan College’s Luncheon Lecture will examine the highs and lows of El Niño and La Niña on Friday, February 26 in the Library conference room. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.
Why do changing water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean affect Northern Michigan weather? Jim Keysor of the National Weather Service office in Gaylord will analyze El Niño cycles from a historical perspective and point out clues to our weather patterns in the months ahead. Jim has been with the National Weather Service for almost 23 years, working at offices in Paducah, Kentucky, Cheyenne, Wyoming and Gaylord, Michigan.
