LA NINA. She's the real deal. Lets refer to her as the assertive Girlfriend of El Nino. She has arrived. Wearing high heels and high hopes, we can expect another exceptional Winter. We've done our research, and in case you were wondering, here is the true explanation of La Nina... What is La Nina? And why is it also sometimes called El Nino?
El Nino is the more prevalent phenomenon of the two whereas La Nina makes an appearance
every few years. A strong El Nino is usually an indicator that a la Nina is right around the
corner. The El Nino phenomenon usually occurs when the surface of the ocean
heats up by more than half a degree Celsius above normal. La Nina on the other hand, is when the reverse happens; that is the surface temperature of the ocean falls half a degree Celsius below normal.
La Nina describes cooler than average waters in the Central Pacific Ocean. The water must be a
certain amount below this average for 5 consecutive months to be actually classified as "La Nina."
Most importantly, La Nina brings a Winter with a power to its punch!! So put on your goggles folks!
Get ready for another strong one!!!
What is the best addition to match an incredible Winter?
