La Niña effects might surprise you. She’s not supposed to be as wild as her counterpart, El Niño…but you never know. She can be mild or she can…..

La Niña Effects

Before we get into La Niña effects, we need to first look into just what La Niña is.

 

Here is what Wikipedia says:

La Niña (/lɑːˈniːnjə/, Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈniɲa]) is a coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon that is the counterpart of El Niño as part of the broader El Niño–Southern Oscillation climate pattern. The name La Niña originates from Spanish, meaning “the little girl”, analogous to El Niño meaning “the little boy”. It has also in the past been called anti-El Niño,[1] and El Viejo (meaning “the old man”).[2] During a period of La Niña, the sea surface temperature across the equatorial Eastern Central Pacific Ocean will be lower than normal by 3 to 5 °C. In the United States, an appearance of La Niña persists for at least five months. It has extensive effects on the weather in North America, even affecting the Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons.

What Time of Year Can La Niña Effects Occur?

In the United States, typically we expect her to be on the scene in winter. Does that mean you can expect to have lots of skiing, skating, snowmobiling, or other exciting winter activities in 2017? Not so fast. Remember, there are always exceptions to every rule, and La Niña can prove to be an exception in every case.

La Niña Effects on Global Climate

Depending on where you live, you might find yourself in a period of global warming. But, what about this winter? What can you expect for your neck of the woods.

Just recently, NOAA issued the following statement:

October 19, 2017 – Forecasters at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center released the U.S. Winter Outlook today, with La Nina potentially emerging for the second year in a row as the biggest wildcard in how this year’s winter will shape up. La Nina has a 55- to 65-percent chance of developing before winter sets in.
