How is Hawaii affected by El Nino/ La Nina

Hypothesis: If in a El Nino year there are more storms in the east, than Hawaii should have more tropical storms in a El Nino year.

El Nino:

  • more than normal activity in the central pacific
  • a greater chance of late season storms to develop
  • more formation of storms in the central pacific
