NWS: New ENSO advisory shows we are in La Niña

The latest advisory for ENSO came out today and shows that we are firmly in a La Niña now and are expected to stay so for at least the next few months before returning to neutral conditions. You can read the outlook at http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_advisory/ensodisc.shtml. While we can get lots of ups and downs in temperature in a La Niña winter, overall statistics tells us that we have a better than even chance of above normal temperatures and dry, sunny conditions over the next few months.
