Quick La Nina Update

January 13, 2011

I’ll have to do a longer post about the winter so far soon.  But today I found this little tidbit on Klaus Wolter’s website:  It’s the Multivariate Index. 

The main message this month is that by most indices, this La Nina is just a moderate one, like 2007-2008 or the two in the late 90s.  There had been talk in the Fall saying that it might be the strongest since 1988-1989, but that hasn’t panned out.  Still a healthy event; borderline moderate-strong ranking.  It’s expected to last through the Spring.  That usually means a chilly spring, but not always wet.
