La Niña is here, what does this mean for winter of 2022?

The Climate Prediction Center and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society have forecasted La Niña this winter, which will push colder water toward the United States.

So what does this mean for winter this year?

This means the Northeast United States will see colder and wetter winters with above average snow fall.

El Niño does the opposite, which leads to milder, warmer winters with less snow fall.

As of Oct. 14, it’s looking like there will be a moderate La Niña during fall and winter with a bit more snow.

The Climate Prediction center also thinks there’s a chance for a bit warmer of a winter with above normal precipitation.
