How to get your story on Coastsider

Posted by
Fri, April 11, 2014

Do you have an upcoming event, letter to the editor, or crazy idea you want to share with the community?

Anybody can post a story to Coastsider. We’ve made it easier than ever, and I’ll tell you how to do it.

You can post your story using the “Post a Letter” link at the top of every page. Just enter your story, and add some pictures. We love pictures, especially when they’re big & splashy, but they’re not required.

You have to be a member of Coastsider to post, and you will be prompted to join (for free) if you’re not. All posters must use their real names. That keeps things neighborly and wards off trolls.

We recommend you submit events at least a week in advance to insure they’ll run in time and reach the broadest audience.  Coastsider reaches thousands of Coastside community members.

Announcements should be for non-commercial events of general interest to run on the home page. If your announcement is commercial or it’s super-specialized, it can still run on the Letters page, as well as our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

If you have any questions or problems with your account, please email me at [email protected]

Odds increase for El Niño next winter


Posted by
Thu, April 10, 2014

The consensus forecast of the odds of an El Niño developing in the winter of 2014/15 has increased 52% to 64% since early March. 

However, the forecast is still uncertain. Spring forecasts of Winter El Niño are problematic.The El Niño/Southern Oscillation discussion at NOAA notes,

Despite this greater model consensus, there remains considerable uncertainty as to when El Niño will develop and how strong it may become. This uncertainty is amplified by the inherently lower forecast skill of the models for forecasts made in the spring. While ENSO-neutral is favored for Northern Hemisphere spring, the chances of El Niño increase during the remainder of the year, and exceed 50% by the summer.

El Niño can lead to significantly wetter winters in northwest Mexico and the southwest United States, including central and southern California. The Coastside is on the edge of the affected area, but some climate scientists are predicting that if there is an El Niño next winter, it could be particularly strong.
