I have lived in this region for close to 40 years. The weather is always of note, either it is raining day after day, threatening to rain, or it is blissfully clear and mild.

It is just over half way through April, a normally wet month. On the radio, they are talking about wildfires. That is in no way unusual, however talking about it NOW is something that has never happened.

To make matters worse, the interior of the province had very little snow through the winter, much of which has already melted. Which means there is a water shortage province wide, in a region defined as "rainforest"

What you are observing is most likely the result of one of the strongest El Nino events ever recorded. Here in Florida we had 2 feet of rain this past winter and it is normally our dry season. The El Nino is now receding and more normal precipitation distribution should return this year. Whether more and even stronger El Nino's are in our future s not known but it is a possibility due to the general warming of the oceans from AGW.

Yes, it's global warming. Give me $100,000,000,000,000 and I'll fix it for ya.

Not surprisingly, these types of events were predicted to be much more common among climate scientists decades ago.

But some people don't listen until it's too late.
