Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, September 19, 2017

It appears as though La Niña may develop in the next few months.

According to a new report released by NOAA it could have an impact the weather across North America this fall and winter.
There is about a 55 to 60 percent chance of La Niña's developing.

In Canada, La Niña will, in general, cause a cooler, snowier winter, such as the near-record-breaking amounts of snow recorded in La Niña winter of 2007/2008 in Eastern Canada.

La Niña is a coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon that is the counterpart of El Niño as part of the broader El Niño–Southern Oscillation climate pattern.
