Dry Season Almost Here - Be On The Lookout For Migrating Penguins...

Weather By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Well, it's 15 December 2011. And with that date normally we here in Panama are starting to experience the start of the dry season - called "verano" (summer) by the local Panamanians. However this year there are still "La Niña" ENSO conditions in effect in the equatorial Pacific ocean. As a result New Zealand is getting hit with flooding rains, as well as many parts of Colombia. It's raining right now as I write this - which by itself is somewhat unusual for mid-December in Panama. We had La Niña conditions all last year as well, so whatever happened last year will probably happen this year as well. Anyway, you might want to be on the lookout for another strange phenomenon - flying, migrating penguins who will be coming up to Panama as documented in this video by BBC...
