Storms likely in state this fall, forecaster says

— A National Weather Service forecaster says severe weather is likely this fall in Arkansas.

Meteorologist John Robinson said Tuesday a weak-to-moderate El Nino is forming in the Pacific and warming the ocean waters.

Robinson says the warming of the Pacific near the equator tends to generate wet weather in the southern United States and can often bring extreme temperature swings.

Robinson says it is not uncommon for the fall to generate more tornadoes than other seasons in Arkansas, as was the case in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005. He adds that four people died in the fall of 2010 from tornadoes.

The weather service is urging people to stay abreast of the weather this fall because of the potential for conditions to become dangerous.

And this will be the result of 'global warming' - oops - 'climate change' I'll bet. At least according to NBC's Weather Channel "experts."
