El Niño Watch

This product provides a historical look at how the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Arctic Oscillation (AO) can influence local climate conditions and corn yield across the Corn Belt. You can use these simple maps and charts to show when and where specific phases of ENSO or AO have influenced:

This tool is not intended to be a forecast. Rather, this tool uses historical data (1981-2010) to highlight locations where ENSO and AO can potentially impact climate conditions over the course of the year, which can help you make more informed farm management decisions.

Click on the map to view a chart of the data for that location; chart will appear below the maps.
