If you are ready for Spring, here's a glimpse at what might be ahead. NOAA's Climate Prediction Center (CPC) released their 90 day forecast covering February to April yesterday. Like previous outlooks, this one has a La Nina flavor to it - dry and warm in the South, cool and wet in the North. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/953993094457970689 With La Nina water temperatures being observed in the Pacific Ocean, the CPC states that the forecast was based heavily on weather trends normally seen during a La Nina. The atmospheric pattern also resembles La Nina conditions, further supporting these thoughts. Model guidance and global trends in the atmosphere were also considered. https://twitter.com/NWSCPC/status/953993793115746304 La Nina (translated from Spanish as “little girl”) is a natural ocean-atmospheric phenomenon marked by cooler-than-average sea surface temperatures in the central Pacific Ocean near the equator. It's the opposite of El Nino (“little boy”), which is when warmer than normal water temperatures are observed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAvk4RXrW_E For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
