The Super El Niño Factor: 3 Major Hurricanes Recorded Over the Pacific for First Time Ever

The weather pattern developing for the Fall/Winter for the continental United States could be spectacular.

In a historic development this weekend, three major hurricanes were recorded over the Pacific Ocean for the first time since records have been kept, reports Market Watch..

Hurricane Kilo, Hurricane Ignacio and Hurricane Jimena were all classified as Category 4 storms on Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center, the second highest classification on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

“Sea surface temperatures are extremely warm, averaging 2 to 5 degrees above normal,” said meteorologist Chris Robbins, a former NHC forecaster and founder of Robbins Meteorological Consulting and iWeatherNet.com. “This anomaly is well north of the oceanic warming associated with a typical El Niño.”
