Caption: Los Padres Dam near flood stage; Carmel Valley, CA, February 1998. El Nino is caused by weak westward trade winds which allow warm water to remain near South America. This mass of warm water affects global weather, causing massive storms on the American continent. Its name, (Spanish for ''the child), is derived from its arrival during the Christmas season.
