It's gonna be a hot dry summer, though.

Let's just hope she doesn't return for next year. I don't know if Texas can handle another one.

For those of you who don't hablay espanyol, La Niña means The Niña.

Maybe we can have a winter next year. This summer is already shapping up to be brutal.

Not to sound like a right winger, but they say everything could lead to more hurricanes.

TFA says that "this will lead to more hurricane activity in the Atlantic".. as a lot of Atlantic hurricanes end up in the Gulf, your summers may not be so dry.....

You can put the stress over the a, but you can't use the proper ñ?

Indeed. La Nina brings nice cool summers to SoCal. Looks to be back to the warm crappy summers instead. And no more real wet weather.. instead the rest of the nation will have normal winters

FTA: La Niña's biggest effects are in winter time. It also often means more hurricane activity in the Atlantic during the summer.


That explains everything! What an enlightening article.

We didn't really have winter in FL this year (not even by relaxed FL winter standards). It's hard enough to get in the holiday spirit when the grass is still green and the trees have all their leaves, but when it's mid 80s every day it's impossible.

All states that depend on the Colorado River are going to feel it this summer. Texas will feel it, too. Their aquifers didn't get replenished. The Rockies didn't get a good snow pack.

Since January 1, rain and snow have measured less than 50 percent of average across the region, and it has been similarly dry in the Upper Colorado River and Rio Grande basins. In these regions, snowpacks are below average and most stations report that the water contained in snowpacks is less than 50 percent of average. The scant snow this winter is feeding low spring streamflow projections across the region. Inflow into Lake Powell, for example, is expected to be 3.5 million acre-feet less than average, or 44 percent of average. Relief from expanding and intensifying drought may not come until the monsoon begins this summer, but it is unclear when the monsoon will begin in earnest or how much rain it will deliver. Although monsoon forecasts are not definitive, there is higher confidence that temperatures will be above average in coming months, in part because summer months have become progressively warmer in recent decades.

Typical left-wing hope-mongering. How is it possible to predict the weather that far in advance?

Always thought it funny that estar, the temporary "to be" verb was used with death. Sorry folks but death isn't temporary.

I'm confused why you think that sounds like something a right-winger would say.

That's what I was thinking at first too...but then La Nina is a temporary (though long lasting) event.
Maybe that's the joke?

To be fair, they have overrated the hurricane seasons EVERY FARKING YEAR since Katrina.

Well that clears everything up. La Nina being over means a busier hurricane season. La Nina going on means more hurricane activity in the summer. How could it be more clear?

25 years here and never really worried about hurricanes. seldom even left for one.

then katrina.

now i worry every year from june to november. it didn't do much damage to my house but it took my job and friends lost everything.

Here's hoping for a good El Niño to replenish the southwest's water supply. We're OK after the bountiful '11 season, but this was a bad winter.

Unless:

1) You are a reoccurring weather pattern

2) You are a member of a culture that has believed in eternal life for two thousand years, which happens to also be around the age of your language.

It's used with any mention of being dead. Not just La Niña. If you died, estar would be used to describe your condition.

Good news for the drought in the south and hurricane areas along the coasts.

A lot of times the only way to replenish the aquifers is to get a good hurricane. Sucks for the people along the coast, but that's life.
Although, when Ike hit, it pretty much missed Central Texas back in 2008. I stood on my porch in the moonlight and saw this massive wall of rain just off to the East and knew we were screwed. Of course, Houston was getting their asses kicked.
By 2009 the drought was in full swing. We had a break in 2010, and 2011 was just....farking....brutal.
It's not looking good right now, we are going to Stage II water restrictions on Monday. If we don't get some rain, we are proper farked.
