Pat Shingleton: "Josh says...."
Josh Eachus handles the weather duties on WBRZ's Tune-In and Noon broadcasts. Josh extrapolated data and offered his prediction for the rest of 2014 on News 2 at 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday. Josh recognized that the habitual nature of Louisiana summertime temperatures could be impacted due to our recent winter. He believes the rest of 2014 will be cooler than average years. He also noted precipitation trends after cooler winters, suggesting slightly drier summers due to the El Nino Southern Oscillation. Josh suggests that "ENSO" could find our rainfall totals at a slight deficit. Realizing that just one Andrew, Gustav, Isaac, Katrina or Rita impacts our area, Josh's research notes that "like" years found reduced activity until mid-September.
