Is Your Southern California Commercial Roofing System Ready for the El Niño Rainy Season?
Nothing can put your Los Angeles County or Southern California commercial roofing system to the test more than bad weather. El Niño is expected to be worse than usual this year, and can cause serious damage to your roof. Good planning and preparation can help keep your commercial property safe, as well as provide a wide range of benefits.
What is El Niño?
El Niño—the warm phase of the El Niño-La Niña climate pattern—changes global atmospheric circulation in known ways, giving us an idea of potential upcoming weather and climate patterns. A stronger El Niño means global temperature, rain, and other patterns are more likely to reflect the expected El Niño impacts. A climate cycle from the Pacific Ocean, theEl Nino cycle, begins when the warm water of the Western Pacific Ocean moves towards the South American coast.
When this occurs, it is known as an El Nino event. The change in water temperature causes tropical storms to move eastwards. Hurricanes in the Eastern Pacific US are more likely to occur during this time. There is also usually an increase in precipitation and colder temperatures all along the southern US. This event can last for up to a year.
While the rainy season in Southern California typically runs from November to April, with the heaviest rains falling in December, El Niño can cause the rainy season to start earlier or later than usual, and to bring heavier or lighter rains than normal.
It is important to get your commercial roofing inspection, maintenance, and roofing repairs done to protect your property from damage.
How to Prepare for El Niño
Something as simple as a commercial roof inspection can keep your property, warehouse, or building safe from heavy rain. Even if you only have minor damage, it can become significant in bad weather. A thorough roof inspection can help property managers and building owners to be better prepared for El Nino and prevent the need for an emergency roof repair.
