Fall Rainfall

Did you know that the Pacific Ocean water temperatures can impact our local weather?

When they're cooler than normal we're in a La Niña event. This is happening now, and scientists forecast it to continue through winter. That means we have better chances to see below average rainfall in the coming months. The climate prediction center (CPC) forecasts dry conditions this fall and winter for much of the Southeast. This isn't something we want either. We are running a precipitation deficit of about 20 inches since January.

    What is the connection between La Nina and global warming? That would seem to the obvious question.

    I know that only too well. Isn't it funny Obama is ridiculing Perry for not believing global warming is a problem while Texas is burning and the lack of rain in Texas is actually the result of a demonstrable and research backed fact, that Pacific waters are too cool? Goes to show you how much he has in his head.

      Gads, you people can even turn an article about La Nina into an Obama bashing session. You do realize that those of us who are able to think for ourselves are on to you, don't you?
