El Nino Continues to Intensify

The National Climate Prediction Center says it could be the strongest El Nino in 70 years. National Weather Service Meteorologist Jeff Zogg says that typically increases the odds for a warmer, wetter winter in Iowa…

Zogg says that can have its drawbacks as well…

Forecasters say we could see a significant storm head our way this coming weekend, but temperatures will be way above normal for late December, and they say the vast majority of that will likely be in the form of rain.
