Climatologists say that La Nina has drought role
SOUTHLAND (INT) La Nina will continue to rule the roost for the coming few months.

The opposing cousin of storm-bearing El Nino has strengthened and will be a strong factor on temperature and precipitation in California and across the country for the next three months.

The Climate Prediction Center reported Thursday that because of below-average sea surface temperatures in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, a moderate-strength La Nina will persist longer with a 90% chance into next spring.

Traditionally, that suggests below-average precipitation for California. However, there has been winters when the opposite occurred in Southern California.

La Nina may shift to a more neutral position next spring. But, there is no mention of an El Nino in the longer range outlook.
