Weather Inversion

I find reports that it’s unseasonably chilly in California at least somewhat reassuring. It’s really warm here in DC — “like California,” I would say, except that it’s cold in California. I was getting concerned that the entire planet was just going to burn up come August, but I guess it’s all evening out in some sense. But what’s happening? El Nino? I feel like weird weather always gets attributed to El Nino.
