So, the El Nino died down already, well as usual. We have a sort of "Four Corners High" that gave us a mudslide near Salt Lake City..... but it is more of "Panhandle High" centered in north Texas this year. Still it is pumping some Gulf moisture up towards Utah. The East Pacific has had a lot tropical storms, but they have all gone out by Hawaii before moving north. Still we have had some rain come all the way here from them. Overall, the SST reports still show above average temps on the broad scale.
