Let the winter weather predictions begin. El Nino year?

I came across this item this morning and thought it was ironically timely considering we're midway through a heat wave. Scientists are seeing signs of an El Nino winter on the horizon, which means warmer and dryer weather in the Northern Rockies. El Nino years tend to be tough on everything from skiers to farmers to salmon. Weather experts are calling for a 60 to 70-percent chance. I'm taking that with a grain of salt, but it's certainly not hard to imagine with the weird weather patterns we've been having in recent years.

50 percent

So imagine if they said it's a 50 percent chance... hey well no duh.
so a 60 - 70 is not much different. And as you mention it's already half way through the year of some high temps.

Now if they say 95%, I'm changing my gardening plans.

What is so weird?

We always have cold winters and hot dry summers. We old guys recall it always being that way. What is so weird?
