Moderate El Nino
Duration July 2019 — May 2020
Peak Intensity +1.1 C
The 2019 El Nino Event was a moderate warming of the equatorial Pacific. It resulted in the least active Atlantic hurricane season since 2013.


Effects of this El Nino were not as great as the Very Strong El Nino four years earlier. It did produce above-average rainfall in the Western United States.

This El Nino event suppressed the Atlantic hurricane season to only 6 storms. It made the 2019 Atlantic hurricane the least active since 2013 in terms of ACE.
