Weather this winter
Posted 08 September 2011 - 10:37 AM
Across the contiguous United States, temperature and precipitation impacts associated with La Niña are expected to remain weak during the remainder of the Northern Hemisphere summer and early fall, and to generally strengthen during the late fall and winter. During September-November 2011, there is evidence that La Niña favors an increased chance of above-average temperatures across the mid-section of the country, and an increased chance of above-average precipitation across the Pacific Northwest (see 3-month seasonal outlook released on 18 August 2011).
(me)So this would indicate a more normal weather Lakeside this winter.

Possibly connected to the complete miss on tropical activity predictions? Much less that expected. That's two years in a row for below average tropical storms.

Anyone seen an explanation as to why we've had such a poor rainy season this year?
Last year we got an El Nino, which brought 42 inches of rain to Lakeside. This compares to an "average" total of 33 inches. (I'm using stats from the private weather station in Riberas.) An El Nino is usually followed by a La Nina the following year. A La Nina climate usually brings less than normal rainfall. Perhaps this is an explanation for why we seem to be getting less rainfall this year at Lakeside. As the planet continues to heat up, these established weather patterns (i.e., El Nino/La Nina) are becoming more erratic and less predictable.

Supposedly, the la nina had abated. But it sure looks like the effects stuck around.
