Is The Water Really "Cooling Off" Yet?

Can you believe Labor Day is already here? Most of the kids are back in school and crowds at the lakes are definitely thinning fast. It's a great time of year to get out on the water (it's still warm too) and you won't need a wet suit yet either!


Warm Water In The Pacific:
El Niño on the way!

They say it's building up to be one of the strongest El Niños in history. Warm water building up in the Equatorial Pacific means there should be a very wet winter in North America. And... that means some good news for our lakes too!

This recent graph from the National Weather Service shows how they're tracking El Niño this year. The official word is: "There is a greater than 90% chance that El Niño will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-16, and around an 85% chance it will last into early spring 2016." Those are some pretty good percentages and it's time to get ready just in case they're right!

Preparations are already underway at all of the lakes for the possibility of heavy winter and spring rain along with rising waters that may be on the way too.

It takes a lot of effort and planning to adjust marinas as water levels go up and down. (Especially when it's fast!) Scuba gear needs to be checked, cables and winches need to be inspected and cleaned, and a whole checklist of tasks needs to be reviewed before the "waiting begins."

One thing is for sure, when the rain starts falling and the water starts rising, the phones will start ringing in the houseboat vacation center and boats will sell out fast. (It's not too early to make your 2016 reservation now, just in case...)
