Coronadans are enjoying another hot summer, with temperatures in some areas hitting as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit (40 Celsius).
But the hottest month in Coronador National Forest in more than two decades has been May.
The heatwave has seen the region see the worst of the El Niño weather system, which has caused drought and tornadoes across the U.S. and Mexico, and brought down trees across the region.
The hottest month of the year in the Coro, in which temperatures are more than 100 degrees (40.2 Celsius) above average, is now behind April’s record-setting month, which is still on track for May’s record high.
The National Weather Service, which measures the weather in the park, said temperatures in the high desert areas hit 97 degrees Fahrenheit, which set the record for the hottest June in Coro history.The El Niño is one of the strongest in the nation and could push cooler air over the region as it moves through the Pacific Ocean, causing heatwaves.
“It’s very difficult to explain,” said Dr. Daniele Boggio, a meteorologist with the National Weather Services.
“We can’t measure the El Nino, we can only track its effects.
It is a very complex system.”
While temperatures have been on the rise in Corondale and its suburbs, Coronada National Forest officials have been warning residents not to drink the water that has been stored in tanks at the nearby park.
The park was designated a historic district in 1999 and now has about 1.5 million acres, or 1.1 percent of the state’s land area.
The park has more than 3,000 tanks, which are full of water and are used for irrigation.
In an email to the Associated Press, the park said the tanks have been full since mid-March.
A spokeswoman for the park didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
In addition to the hot weather, the Corona National Forest, home to the largest population of elk in the world, has also seen record snowfall.
The Coronades are home to a variety of animals, including elk, moose, pronghorn, deer and water buffalo.
The last major snowstorm hit in July, when the region saw record snowfalls.
For years, the lake has been a popular destination for water tourists from around the world.
The lake is home to thousands of visitors who camp out overnight, swim or take water sports classes.
“If you’re visiting the park and have no idea what you’re doing, you’re really missing out,” said Tom O’Connor, a retired park ranger and conservationist.
O’Connor said the park’s main attraction is the El Dorado River, a vast natural waterway that has formed in the midst of a forest and is home not only to many rare birds, but also wildlife.
The river flows into the lake, which, in turn, feeds the fish and wildlife.
There is no drinking water in the river and the park was forced to shut down its drinking wells last summer due to the extreme cold.
