Q & A



Can a storm in the Pacific be linked with freak weather in Europe and Asia?

NASA: No. Some longer-term patterns in the Pacific such as El Niño, do have effects that can be detected statistically in far off regions of world (rainfall in Africa, drought in Australia etc.), but weather systems (such as tropical storms) have very limited extents (around 1,000 miles at most).
