Correlation between El Nino and europe weather

  1. Jul 13, 2009 #1
    Does anyone know if there is any correlation between these two?I mean most of the times during El Nino events the weather here in Europe gets ''crazy'' but till now i haven't seen any formal scientific survey which describes it with certainty. Now with the new El Nino being formed what kind of weather patterns should we expect in Europe in the next months?

    El Nino is a warming of the Central Tropical Pacific Ocean. In others words, a long way from Europe.
