There's a good chance California could get hit by El Niño later this year. Mike Halpert, Deputy Director of the Climate Prediction Center at the National Weather Service, says they're forecasting a 50-percent chance of the weather phenomenon hitting this fall.
It would rise to 65-percent during the winter. Effects of a typical El Niño in California would be warmer than average temperatures. Meteorologists expect little influence of either El Niño or La Niña conditions this summer.
