The latest on  La Niña

I have talked a lot about the La Niña that is present and how it will play a large role in the seasonal forecast. With this in mind, I want to share the latest precipitation forecast from the NMME Model. You can probably guess what it would look like, and you would probably be right…







    The maps above show a lot of brown/red across the southern tier of the country. That indicates a pretty strong chance of below average precipitation. Does that mean that there won’t be any storms? No...it simply means that the chances of seeing drier than average conditions are much higher than seeing average or wetter than average conditions. Again, this shouldn’t be a shocker to anyone that reads this column. In order to prepare you for the next several months, I have been making an effort to talk about this threat. And to put it simply, the farther northeast you live, the better chances you have at seeing some better rain/snow. The farther southwest you live, your chances at seeing better moisture are greatly reduced.
