Record Heat forecast for Toronto 2010

CANADA - Forecasters are predicting record non-stop heat for the next three months in Toronto, a prolonged period of hot and dry weather which will test a number of temperature records.

The predictions are that temperatures will be as much as 15 to 20 degrees F above the average temperatures for this time of year, not just for Toronto but for all of Ontario and Quebec.

Scientists say the reason is a combination of El Nino and Global Warming, stressing that the latter is prolonging and strengthening the effects of El Nino. El-Nino is a climate pattern which happens every 3 to 7 years and results in bizarre weather patterns. The effects of global warming/climate change is causing El Nino to happen more often and have a longer cycle.

Scientists predict that by 2050 El Nino may simply become constant and climatologists will have to come up with a new term for El Nino's bigger brother "El Nino Grande".

This is bad news for poor Ontario farmers who lack the infrastructure to water their plants with large scale sprinkler systems and must rely on rain.
