donald trump's transition, days after his big win. the president-elect shakes things up with his transition team and questions about that team. thousands are still taking to the streets to protest. trump's historic win. plus, another grim report from mosul. isis continuing to execute the innocent.
2:01 am
>> welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. we're live in atlanta. i'm natalie allen. >> and i'm george howell from cnn headquarters. newsroom starts right now. 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. for the third straight day, protesters have marched in the streets against donald trump. the protests are not having any noticeable effect on the president-elect. on tri, trump put his running mate mike pence in charge of that transition that will take place at the white house from the obama administration. >> demonstrators hit the streets. take a look at this in atlanta, georgia. miami, florida, san diego, california, and boston, massachusetts, and dozens of other cities. they have been peaceful protests for the most part, but authorities have made several arrests in los angeles.
2:02 am
>> tensions were high in portland, oregon, as well as protesters squared off for a second straight night. the crowd was ordered to disperse after reports some people began throwing objects at officer. about two dozen protesters were arrested the night before when protests turned violent. cnn's jim acosta has more on the transition to the white house including of trump's hint of a compromise on obama care. >> just days after the election, a shake-up. vice president-elect mike pence has bumped kiss christie down to vice chairman. along with jeff sessions, former new york mayor rudy giuliani, newt gingrich and dr. ben carson. sources say the move comes after in-fighting of the transition of whether the team should hire previously anti-trump republicans, auld never
2:03 am
trumpers. not to mention the bridgegate scandal in new jersey. >> mr. president, it was a great honor being with you. >> another surprise comes one day after donald trump met with president obama. following his conversation with the president, trump is now open to keeping some portions of obama care, something he vowed to repeal during the campaign. trump told "the wall street journal," either obama care will be amended or appealed and replaced. >> a continued protests against the president-elect flaring up across the country. >> look, i think everyone needs to take a deep breath. >> reince priebus ratcheted up the discussions. a gripe trump walked back later tweeting loved the fact that the protesters last night have great passion for our country.
2:04 am
we will all come together and be proud. >> but senator harry reid says trump must do more than tweet. we must first the put the responsibility for healing writ belongs, at the feet of donald trump, a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate. >> the head of the -- >> cnn has learned priebus and bannon are leading candidates for the powerful chief of staff position with signs pointing at priebus. >> cnn's jim acosta reporting there for us. let's get more on this post election situation with cnn reporter eugene scott live via skype in washington. eugene, good to have you with us. >> let's talk about the president-elect's drama with increase christie being demoted and the apparent horse race between steve bannon and reince priebus for the position of
2:05 am
president-elect. >> governor christie is now vice chairman after being named head of the team. there were some concerns about not just the bridgegate scandal and drawing negative attention to the campaign. well, i guess future administration at this moment, but also some concerns about loyalty to the trump campaign. christie pretty much disappeared according to our reports for a couple of weeks following the revelation of the "access hollywood" tape, not coming into the office very regularly, and i think the trump campaign really wanted to get someone on board that they felt like they could trust more. >> also, there are questions about donald trump's family being part of the cabinet while heading his businesses. they would be part of that blind trust to oversee his businesses. there are questions of what that blind trust would be and also whether there is a conflict of interest in having them on his transition team. >> well, as of right now, there's no federal law that suggests there is a conflict of interest. and that the trump organization
2:06 am
announced friday that they are vetting several business structures that would allow for the kids to take over the business in a way that does not compromise the trump administration. so what that will look like remain toes be seen. >> there is also a lot of people, you know, saw the president-elect sitting beside the president barack obama just a few days ago sitting together, people heartened by that and now they're seeing that the president-elect may be open to compromise when it come to obamacare, not repealing all of it, but instead repealing parts of it and replacing. what can you tell us more about that? >> new york congressman chris collins was on cnn friday saying that, you know, people who sign up for obamacare right now would still have until the end of 2017 and not everything would be repealed. some would say trump never suggested that everything would be repealed. but trump regularly said obamacare was a disaster and that they wanted to get rid of the whole thing immediately.
2:07 am
so it does seem like there's a bit of balking away from what was promised on the campaign. >> eugene, and i'll ask our director if we're able to see some of the images of the protests, but there have been protests in so many different cities, as you know, in atlanta, miami, boston and several others, dozens, in fact, people protesting donald trump and his election as the president-elect of the united states. you see these images here. eugene, the question for people who are on the streets, some of them who did not vote. what do the protesters demand? >> they've voted for a very different admin striegz thistra what trump proposed. so their hope is that there can be some level of acknowledgement that the america they wanted to move forward and so different than what trump wants to move forward. but to give credit to president-elect trump, he did say he wanted to lead people who
2:08 am
also opposed him. time will tell. >> there was one tweet that donald trump put out that he got some criticism for, but walked it back with a follow-up tweet indicating that, you know, the protesters are showing their passion for the nation. so, again, we'll continue to see these protests and obviously the trump transition continues. eugene scott live in washington. thank you for the insight today. >> trump supporters are cheering his election victory, of course. some hillary clinton supporters are having a much harder time accepting it. >> kyung law indicates the transition of a trump presidency is creating a high degree of anxiety in certain quarters. >> protests may be easiest to see, but that's ohm part of what many people feel. >> i think it's leaving a lot of us feeling very shaken b and unsure and alone and afraid. >> are you still upset?
2:09 am
>> yeah. i'm definitely still recovering. this goes beyond politics, this goes to something deeper and more fundamental. >> sherman lives in las vegas with her husband and three children, but her anxiety is shared across social media platforms and television. from the minority woman afraid of her own name's foreign sound to the latino high school senior protesting in san francisco. >> it means a lot to me right now because a lot of my family, a lot of my friends are undocumented. and it's not fair. it's really not fair. >> to the late-night host not telling a joke, sharing, instead, his yet unrealized hope for little girls watching. >> i imagine this moment today will be a defining one for you, one that will make you worker harder and strive farther. and whoever you are, i hope i live to see your inauguration. >> and the muslim man looking for his place in trump's america. >> i'm very concerned as a
2:10 am
muslim. i'm very concerned about a candidate who is now going to be president who said on the campaign trail that he wants to ban all muslims, enmass, just because they're muslim. >> part of it is expectations. kari sherman, like many, believed she cast her vote for the woman who would win. >> being a historic moment and vote for our first woman president. there was such a high in that moment. now in hindsight, i've been in a bubble. i think a lot of what i'm feeling and i think what other people i know are feeling is a sense of betrayal that this country isn't what we thought it was. >> as politicians work toward a smooth transition in washington, many outside the beltway are finding this as a change they have yet to accept. cnn, las vegas. >> it will take some time for people to come to understand this and move on, hopefully.
2:11 am
throughout his campaign, donald trump vowed to do away with obamacare. trump now says that he may keep some parts of the affordable care act. the president-elect told "the wall street journal" that he is now reconsidering his previous stance following his meeting with mr. obama on thursday. in an interview with "60 minutes" on cbs, he detailed what provisions of the law might st stay. >> let me ask you about obamacare, which you say you're going to repeal and replace. when you replace it, are you going to make sure that people with preconditions are still covered? >> yes, because it happens to be one of the strongest assetests. >> you're going to keep that. >> also with the children living with their parents for an extended period. we're going to very much try and keep that in. adds cost, but it's something we're going to try and keep. >> and there's going to be a period, if you repeal it and before you replace it, where millions of people could lose --
2:12 am
>> we're going to do it si simultaneo simultaneously. it will be just fine. that's what i do. i do a good job. i know how to do this stuff. we're going to repeal it and replace it. we're not going to have a two-day period or a two-year period where there's nothing. it will be repealed and replaced and we'll know. it will be great health care for many less money. >> well, the threat of a repeal of obamacare sent more than 100,000 americans rushing to buy health insurance on wednesday, the day after the u.s. election. that is the biggest turnout so far during this year's sign-up period. >> hillary clinton speaking out about her defeat 37 the former democratic presidential candidate spoke with volunteers at a conference call on friday telling them these have been very, very tough days. >> this is a tough time for our country. i think we've seen how people have been reacting to the events of this election and i know that
2:13 am
we've got to be reaching out to each other to keep -- keep it clear in our own minds that what we did was so important. >> clinton also appeared at a staff event in brooklyn, new york, on friday. she urged staffers not to lose hope from tuesday's loss. still ahead here on "cnn newsroom," the question about russia's relations with the united states. will it change under a trump presidency? >> a top aide to russian president vladimir putin is dropping hints. plus, donald trump says border security will be a top priority during his first days as u.s. president. how mexico is responding to the prospect of a border wall. that's also ahead. here you're watching "cnn newsroom." but i'd like to keep being terrible at golf for as long as i can. new patented ensure enlive has hmb plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. for the strength and energy to do what you love. new ensure enlive. always be you.

2:17 am
number of things in common, including protecting their country's prosperity and national interests. putin's spokesman tells cnn both men are ready to improve relations between the u.s. and russia. he says ties between the kremlin and the obama administration right now are, quote, very lousy. matthew chance is in moscow for us. we all know they've been lousy, but as far as obama and putin, but there are some big issues on the table. but interesting, though, that putin was the first to call trump to congratulate him. >> he was certainly one of the first leaders and that was interpreted as this kind of sense of the russian joy that donald trump had been elected into office and not his alternative, hillary clinton. to a certain extent, that's true. all along, the russians have made it clear -- not officially,
2:18 am
of course. but the state media, the messages put across in newspapers and on television here was very much pro trump because the kremlin sees him as somebody they can do a deal with potentially. they see him as not necessarily fixed in his anti-are russian stance, which is the way they characterized hillary clinton. so there are all sorts of ways in which they could be a pivotal moment between russia and the united states. trump indicated, for instance, that he would be willing to work with russia in syria to eliminate islamic states and other jihadist groups. that's music to the kremlin's ears. in reality, it may prove complicated as would a trump suggestion that he would look again at recognizing crimea, which russia annexed in 2014 from ukraine. it's a nice idea and russia could be pleased with it, but it could potentially alienate the united states's traditional allies in europe who are very concerned about the -- about russian military ambitions in
2:19 am
eastern europe. so, look, there is an opportunity here for the problems to be tackled in new ways, but the problems themselves aren't just going to go away. >> exactly. so we will stay optimistic about that. and what about the syrian war if the u.s. and russia are on different sides there? >> yes. and when it comes to islamic state, that's something donald trump has said is not right. they should be on the same side when it comes to fighting that jihadist group. even under president obama, there have been negotiations to try and bring the russian and the u.s. militaries, who are both operating inside syria, together to try and, you know, target with combined firepower the forces of islamic state. the problem is that it's complicated on all sorts of levels. not least of which is that if you join with the russians and fight against islamic state or any other jihadist group, it puts you, washington, on the side of the syrian government, on the side of ba har al assad and, of course, on the sad of
2:20 am
assad's allies first and foremost iran. so the united states will be fighting alongside iran. and it also alien ates the traditional arab allies on the opposite sides of the conarthritic. turkey is not going to be happy about it, either. so yes, it's in theory a great idea. in practice, it's going to be very, very difficult. >> matthew chance for us live in moscow there. thank you, matthew. >> trump has made many promises on the campaign trail, the promises that matthew just talked about to improve relation wes russia. we'll see how that plays out. matthew explained a lot of nuance. one of those promises also was to build a border wall between the united states, the u.s. and mexico and he is not backing down on that. >> no. he says border security will be a priority during his first days in office. ed lavendera has more for us now on the reaction in mexico. >> we are going to build a great wall. >> the wall just got ten feet higher. >> maybe some day they'll call it the trump wall. >> the border between the united
2:21 am
states and mexico stretches nearly 2,000 miles, nearly 700 miles of it is already covered with some form of border wall or steel fencing, but donald trump wants more. >> on day one, we will begin working on an inpenetrable, physical, tall b, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall. >> well b, of course it can be done. >> propheter michael dirk is the author of the book "why walls don't work." >> a large concrete structure which should be 25 feet high which would be intense in resource and money. >> cnn has asked many about what would be more feasible. it would likely need to be made of 25 foot precast concrete panels requiring 339 million cubic feet of concrete. the panels would be held together by five billion pounds of reinforced steel.
2:22 am
with an estimated cost of at least $10.5 billion and possibly much more. trump supporters say they can't wait to see the beginning of the border wall construction. >> that wall will get built and m mexico is going to pay for that wall. >> i think they will try to build a wall. >> the people want to come into our can country, they should do it illegally. >> but in mexico, the idea of a wall is often shrugged off as a bump in the wall north.. jose says he's illegally crossed into the u.s. many times picking fruits and vegetables. he says a wall might make crossing over a little harder, but immigrants like him would always find a way to find work to feed their families. arman on says he's crossed the board 25 times starting when he was just 16 to work farm fields all over the u.s. he says keeping people like him out of the country will only hurt the u.s.
2:23 am
he says if he tries to remove all the mexicans in the united states, donald trump will realize what a huge mistake that is and how much the u.s. economy depends on mexican immigrants. ed lavendera, cnn, mexico city. we turn now to south korea. thousands of protesters are demand canning again that the about the resign. >> it is one of the largest in about three decades.s there - you're looking at live images this hour in is he oul, south korea, where it is 7:23 there. president park guen-hye is accused of letting a friend of the government to influence campaigns. >> tell us about this continued uprighting and how many people are demanding she has to say. >> natalie, this was expected to be big and it is absolutely massive. as you say, one of the biggest anti-government are protests
2:24 am
we've seen in this country in decades. now, police at some point are estimating there may have been around 200,000 people here. organizers say that it is going to be closer to 1 million. so somewhere in the middle of those two figures you would assume. the place is packed. here in downtown seoul, there are people of all ages. you have families, you have children, you have a remarkably large amount of high school students and university students. so all ages with one simple message. down with park. they want president park geun-hye to resign, the fact that she allegedly gave documents to a friend of hers who allegedly benefited with that. she's currently been arrested with charge and fraud and abuse of power. president park geun-hye, despite having apologized twice to the
2:25 am
nation is under fire here. there are a lot of people calling for her to step down. many of them telling me they're not going to stop protesting until she resigns. >> paula, we're looking at these images. as you say, the streets are there are absolutely filled with people. you say there are students, there are people who are frustrated with the president there. talks to us about -- you alluded to this, but a lot more and exactly why. what are the reasons for their frustration? the president apologized, she says she took responsibility for the it, but still, people are incredibly frustrated with it. >> that's right. and a lot of people i've spoken to say they feel that they have been lied to. they feel their president has not told them the truth, has kept things from them. this is not the only reason they want her to step down. there has been some growing frustration with president park
2:26 am
geun-hye over the past few years. there was that sink of the ferry that killed more than 300 people. there is still a lot of residual anger towards the president because of that and towards the government assuming there was collusion in that and that was what caused the lack of saving more mean. there were a number of reasons that there is disillusion with this government. of course, this isn't across the board. i have to point out, there are a lot of people who still support president park. but this is really a coming together today of not just people who are angry about this latest scandal. this is people who are angry about what they perceive as continuing scandal. there are labor unions here, anybody with a grievance against the government, against president park is here today. this has been building for some time. >> paula hack cncocks, we thank for that. you have to wonder what will
2:27 am
happen there. >> so many people demanding that president park resign. paula hancocks, thank you. donald trump made disparaging statements against muslims while running for president. next, what some american-muslims have to say about the country's next president. plus, it's said isis commanders have started to leave mosul. the prulths tactics that they use to retreat as "cnn newsroom" continues.

2:31 am
u.s. president elect donald trump has shaken up his white house transition team. onfy, he put vice president-elect mike pence in charge, can he moting new jersey governor chris christie. trump added three of his children after announcing he was turning his businesses over to them. >> take a look at these many images here. anti-trump demonstrators sweeping across the u.s. in many cities for a third straight day. this, the scene in portland, oregon. protesters there facing off against police that were in riot gear. officers say that some objects were thrown at them. several mass transit lines were disrupt disrupted by those demonstrations. the taliban are claiming ago responsibility for an attack on a u.s. military base in afghanistan. at least four people are dead, 14 more wounded after an explosion. a local afghan official says the people killed.were foreign citizens, but their nationalities are not yet known. in the u.s., some muslims are demonstrating against donald trump can's presidential win.
2:32 am
they haven't forgotten him saying he wanted to ban all muslims from entering the country. >> still, there are some people that tell our jessica snyder a trump presidency is great for the american dream. sheer a report. >> in michigan where muslims make up a large portion of the population -- there is widespread uncertainty about a trump presidency. >> are you angry at the things he said throughout this election? >> definitely. you have to be kind to people. >> done can ald j. trump is calling for a complete and total shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> trump made that promise last december, but dialed it back by the time his party's convention convened in cleveland. >> we must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place. the muslim ban is something that
2:33 am
in some form has morphed into a extreme vetting. >> but tonight, calling for a complete and total shutdown of muslims entering the united states is still on his official website. for muslims and many others, the rhetoric crossing the line. >> i don't know how he got elected, i'll be honest. >> she works on immigration issues at the detroit mayor's office and says trump's divisive rhetoric has made muslims' lives more difficult. >> i'm definitely angry. i don't want to say i'm fearful because i still have faith in the democratic process. >> it's unexcusable, the things that he said. it was shocked to hear and disappointing, as well. >> we can't stand against him. we have to support him and wish him the best. hopefully he will instill that
2:34 am
union 2ity he's been saying in his speeches ever since he won. >> nadal altier has a different view. >> mr. trump should be held as an image of the american treatment. t a imir voted for trump. as a small business owner, he sees trump as a role model and believes he speaks from strength. he wants fellow muslims to see it the same way. >> what do you say to them when they have this shock or this anger? >> i say to them, the country, it's going the on be great. >> well, another muslim trump voter is azra numani, co-founder of the muslim reform movement and calls herself a silent and secret trump supporter. armani tells us why. >> explain why you voted for donald trump. what made you choose him over secretary clinton. >> the condition of my life has not improved over the last eight years. i'm a lifelong liberal, a
2:35 am
lifelong democrat. i believe in progressive values. so i wanted a new opportunity for change. what i hope will happen, most importantly for me as a muslim, is that we will deal without obviscation. i know that people have a lot of well intentioned arguments for why they believe muslims are better protected by not talking about the islam and islamic extremism, but i believe that we have to confront the issue honestly and directly. and i saw in donald trump's national security solutions a clarity on that point that is, to me, very important. >> i understand that in hearing secretary clinton, that the clinton foundation received money from qatar or saudi arabia, that made a big impact on you. >> it did.
2:36 am
anderson, i believe in the feminist movement that is the pant suit revolution. i want to see a woman as the chief executive of the united states of america. but at the same time, i don't want to compromise on values that are really important to me. and the governments of qatar and saudi arabia, to me as a muslim, represent the darkest interpretation of islam that's out there in the world and they represent a denial of progressive values. that's my moral consistency. and when i saw that first memo that showed the documentation of money from the money from qatar and saudi arabia to the clinton foundation, i was so distressed. what really killed it for me, though, was the e-mail from secretary clinton to her aide, the governments of saudi arabia are financing and supporting the islamic state and other radical
2:37 am
muslim groups. that's the kind of honesty that i want to see in policy and, unfortunately, for whatever reason, i haven't seen that delivered in the democratic platform on solving this issue of terrorism in our world today. >> when -- obviously, you know, we talked to a number of muslim americans who expressed fear about donald trump, about some of the rhetoric that came up during the campaign, particularly the idea initially that donald trump seemed to have of banning muslims coming into the -- a temporary ban he called it on muslims coming to the united states until they figure out what the heck was going on. he seemed to have morphed that into banning people from areas where there is islamic terrorism. did that concern you at all because the argument on that was not only is that un-american to ban people based on religion, but that it actually alien ates the very people who we should be trying to bring closer in order to fight radical islam, islamic
2:38 am
terrorism. >> well, you know, answerederson, i've watched you go from the streets of orlando to paris in the wake of this blood that has been spilled in the name of islamic extremism. and it breaks my heart that we don't deal clearly and honestly with this problem that confronts us by thinking that we are protecting muslims by not talking about it. that is the prog propaganda movement that wants us to avoid a discussion on ideology. if we do, it indicts the islam that they practice. >> you know, george, asra is an example that you can't lump everyone in piles, all muslims this or african-americans that or women this. everyone has their own individual thoughts on things, for sure. >> and that is the danger in this election.
2:39 am
there are so many different schools of thought about who did what, but you do always have to look at the nuance because there is a lot of nuance to it. still ahead here on "cnn newsroom," the iraqi military says it's made gains against isis and mosul, it's making gains. a live report from iraq as news room continues. ♪ everything your family touches sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox. as ai can embrace a worldber, full of surprising moments. the new marriott portfolio of hotels now has 30 brands in over 110 countries. so no matter where you go, you are here. join or link accounts today. they keep telling me "drink more water."

the battle for mosul continues in iraq. we are now getting reports that isis has executed more civilians. >> the u.n. says the terror group kill at least 60 civilians this week. some of the victim eps' bodies were hung at intersections with
2:43 am
notes alleging that they collaborated with isis forces. we know they would kill with some people who had cell phones thinking they were collaborate. >> the news comes as iraqi forces push into two neighborhoods in the eastern part of mosul and are facing tough resistance from isis. the images you see here appear to show civilians cheering iraqi troops as they advance onward. people in mosul say isis commanders have started to flee the city, but as they do it, they're leaving teenage combatants to fight in their place. for more on what's happens, let's go live to cnn's phil black who is in iraq following this story. let's talk about these executions that we're hearing, reports of 60 people killed in mosul. what can you tell us about this? >> george, there are now frequent accounts of these atrocitie atrocities. dozens of people just in fact last week.
2:44 am
that's what we've heard from the united nations. it's what wove heard from people in mosul directly. mass executions of people that are condemned for allegedly collaborating in some way with the iraqi and kurdish operation to take back mosul from isis. as you you mentioned there, these are people who may have -- who were condemned simply on the basis of owning a mobile phone. so dozens of people, as you described, some of the bodies strung up across town of major intersections from electrical poles, wearing orange clothing, words that brand them as traitors to isis and its cause. all of this, really, in a terrifying warning to the remaining population, which is still significant. it's huge. it's believed to be somewhere in the order of a million people or above. all of this is a warning to them to stick with isis to the bitter end, george. >> it's so interesting, phil, this is natalie. you see people cheering and waving hello to the iraqi forces as they come in there to eastern
2:45 am
mosul. and then you see that darkened gray sky with the tanks on on the other side of town. we were all told this could be weeks, this could be months. how is it looking, does anyone know? >> it's certainly not imminent, that's for certain. from the early rapid progress that we've seen over the last three weeks or so, that was when we saw the operation move in and sishlg mosul, take back the towns and villages that surround it. we are now in a much harder phase of the battle. so while that operation is still under way to circle the town and take back those settlements that isis has occupied surrounding the city on the eastern side of mosul in the outer suburbs and areas, that's where iraqi forces have moved in and have been now engaged for some days now in a daily street battle. it's urban warfare and a particularly brutal example. they talk about endless waves of suicide car bombings well entrenched sniper positions, fighters using the narrow streets they know so well as
2:46 am
well as the tunnels that they have been digginging beneath the city itself. all of a very well prepared, highly motivated defense of isis' occupation of mosul. so every day wear hearing about iraqi forces taking a new piece of territory, moving into a new neighborhood there in the east. but by their own admission, it is slow, it is difficult, but they say they are committed and they're committed to doing it in such a way that minimizes the civilian casualties. because for them, they say that is and it is obviously and should be key, winning back mosul at the cost of huge civilian losses would not be much of a victory at all. natalie. >> phil, as you were explaining all that, we were looking at some images, a showing, with you know, soldiers and troops kicking down doors. this battle going street by street, house by house. bloody and slow as this process continues. but those forces are making advances into mosul.

cnn's phil black live for us there in irbil, iraq. thank you for the reporting. we'll stay in touch with you. well, derek van dam has joined us here on the set because he's about to explain a new weather phenomenon. la nina. >> not so good for us here because it's not going to help our drought. i'll get into that. let's take it back a year in 2015 or so, el nino was the buzz word in the meteorological community. it was partly responsible for some of the warmest years on record, if you recall. now we're going to talk about the antithesis, which would be la nina, which is the female baby version of that. what exactly is it? first we have to discover what el nino is because it's so critical in determining the world's weather patterns. we have the warming of the waters across the central and eastern pacific just off the coast of south america. that's an el nino season.

but what meteorologistists and climatologyists are starting to notice is a reversal in those water temperatures, start to go drop below normal. so we are start to go move from what was a watch for la nina into an advisory, meaning that observations of this cooling trend in the ocean waters across the pacific has occurred through the month of october in through the first few days of november. so why do you care? why is this important for you? well, it has ramifications on the way weather systems move across the planet. take, for instance, over the next three months, december to february, heading into the northern hemisphere winter months, we start to see with a typical el nino pattern, the pacific northwest get hammered with snowstorms and heavy rainfall, seattle to british columbia. if you're watching across indonesia or southern australia, dry and cool weather. we know how deaf state something of the brush fires can be across that area. central america, parts of brazil and into peru, record breaking
2:49 am
heat. as we head into the months of june to august, you can see how kind of the roles reverse across understand anesthesia. we start to see wet and cool conditions overspread that condition typically with el nina. even the amount of rainfall and hurricanes impacted with la nina seasons. that's something to consider here for our friends in north america. jet streams in the el nino system shift southward and that increases the understand sheer that rips apart hurricanes. but when we see a la nina system develop, that jet stream moves north and we start to see an increase in atlantic hurricanes develop. as i promised, george and natalie, we talked about the la nina impact with the drought. unfortunately there are correlation wes a dry season seth up across the southeast and, well, that would go along with the fires that we are smelling and breathing in as we step outside of the offices here at cnn. >> that's unusual.
