El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs every few years in the Pacific Ocean.
It can have significant impacts on weather patterns around the world, including North America.
During El Niño, the Pacific Ocean becomes warmer than usual, which can lead to changes in atmospheric circulation patterns.
In North America, El Niño can lead to warmer and wetter conditions in the southern part of the continent, and colder and drier conditions in the northern part.
El Niño can also lead to more frequent and severe storms, including hurricanes and tornadoes.
The impacts of El Niño can vary depending on the strength and duration of the phenomenon.
It is important for individuals and communities to be prepared for the potential impacts of El Niño on their region.
