Will el niño bring the monsoon before the haboob returns?

Polyglot meteorology.

What is the rule for capitalization of el niño, El Niño, el Niño? I expect it is the latter, but I like lowercase in this case. In Spanish, outside of a headline, “the child” would be lowercase, but this is a reference to Jesus — kinda.

Monsoon or monsoons? Better: monsoon season.

What is the plural of haboob? Spell check offers to change haboob to hobnob.
