I didn't understand how long the El Nino increase goes on; the recovery from it is ongoing. We'll know more in... I dunno, a few months. 2016 will almost certainly be another record year; 2017 will definitely NOT, we know this much now.

Pacific Northwest folks, it looks like your heatwave years are about to be over. The "blob" of hot water that seemed to be returning is now leaving, and check this shit out, as of up to two weeks ago. I love these animations.

Canada makes the whole year's anomaly available:

That is most interesting. We used this type of info to determine where to go fishing for BIG tuna, mahi and marlin. Very useful. However I've only seen it on a hyper local scale and because of that one well-timed rainstorm could totally alter the information.
