In this part we learn that during the first year of an El Nino, North America doesn't feel the effects, but as the sea surface temperatures continue to warm, the trade winds weaken and the convection over the west Pacific moves to the east Pacific. That convection heads to the North American coast from the South American coast due to the stregthening hadley circulation. We also learn the typical impacts from El Nino in the United States but that not every El Nino is the same and that El Nino is not the only game in town.
