La Nina Has Faded Away.....

    La Nina was in place last winter and much of this summer. That is a cooling of the Pacific ocean. La Nina usually means drought in the South East and West. Above normal precipitation in the midwest. Now we are back to a "Neutral" zone. Neither LaNina or ElNino. Weather guesser's say the wind patterns haven't changed yet to reflect this fact. Maybe if those wind patterns change then it will have an effect on winter time weather? Elnino usually means powerful storms coming through California and then maybe going on to become Nor Easters. Maybe that why there haven't been few if any Nor Easters? I think Neutral would be better for snow than La Nina if and when the winds change. El nino would be preferrable ....

    I have been doing alot of reading on this subject, and it seems like a good winter may be in our sights!

    It seems like most of the country will be in for a "better" than average winter.

    Good Luck to ALL....Bossman

    Thanks for your kind words, i have a good feeling about this winter. If im wrong you all can call me a fool!(if you dont already think so):rolleyes: Its going to be a snowy one! I was looking around today for past snowfall history i found this http://www.erh.noaa.gov/okx/climate/records/monthseasonsnowfall.html

    between 2002-2006 nyc had over 40 inches of snow, the avg is 24 i think! I wish we can start another streak like that!:bluebounc

    Thanks, Tim

    The bad news is the Pacific Oscillator(long term, 10 to 30 years) La nina pattern is still in place. This is led to generally less rain east of the Mississippi and warmer temps. Some say this is what is causing global warming. The Corp of Engineers say we have had less and less rain filling up their reservoirs since 1998. Around the time the PO went LaNina and the Time the US got warmer on average. So we are in this pattern for 10 years so far.
