Forecasters say the chances are diminishing that El Niño will bring rain to California. Ed Joyce reports from Sacramento.
The NOAA Climate Prediction Center analysis shows a 60-to-65 percent chance of the warm ocean condition known as El Niño developing this fall and winter. The report also indicates a strong El Niño is not expected and a weak event is likely.
Michelle Mead is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.
She says a weak El Niño won't end the California drought.
