NOAA – La Niña cooling flip has occurred

‘The Northern Hemisphere winter of 2020/21 is shaping up to be a doozy,” says reader Martin Siebert.

The latest CFSv2** forecast for region 3.4 of the central equatorial Pacific Ocean reveals that a flip from the recent El Niño setup (warming) to a La Niña one (cooling) has occurred.


La Niña’s are usually associated with cooler global average temperatures, droughts in the southern U.S., and anomalously wet conditions in Australia.

  1. Prince George bracing for record low winter temperatures this week.
    La Niña atmospheric phenomenon brings unusually early snow to province’s northern Interior. Posted: Oct 19, 2020
    Winter has come to Prince George earlier than usual, with snow accumulations of up to 15 centimetres in some areas.
    Environment Canada forecasts flurries in the northern city for most of the week, with nighttime temperatures between -2 C and –13 C and daytime temperatures between 4 C and –4 C. These are much lower than records for the same period in previous years, where the average low temperature was around –1 C and the average high temperature around 8 C.
    “So, we’re not getting as much melting [of the snow] happening,” Environment Canada’s senior meteorologist Carmen Hartt told Carolina De Ryk, the host of CBC’s Daybreak North.
    Hartt says the current snowy weather in Prince George is part of the La Niña global atmospheric phenomenon that is affecting Western Canada, which means winter is colder than in other years. Other parts of B.C.’s northern Interior are also seeing heavy snow this week. “It’s all due to that Arctic air that’s been pushing down, and it is expected to continue to push down this week,” she said.

    The snowy weather is proving to be a boon from Mother Nature for the Prince George Caledonia Nordic Ski Club, which is witnessing a 154 per cent growth in new memberships this season, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
    “It looks like we’re going to enter into an amazing season with all the snow,” said the company’s general manager Angela LeFebvre. “It’s going to be a very busy year.”
    On Monday, the City of Prince George begins to clear snow and ice on roads and sidewalks. Following a heavy snow last Friday, the city also closed some parks and outdoor recreational facilities. Hartt says the cold will start to ease this weekend, but, in Prince George, the snow is unlikely to disappear.
    “Our [climate] normals are getting colder,” she said. “Next week, it looks like we might rebound a little bit closer to normal temperatures, but it’ll still be cold enough to snow.”

  2. What about Europe this winter? How will this La Nina [ if it is true], affect Europe ?
    To have a severe winter in Europe, only takes a High Pressure to settle over Southern Sweden in early winter…….and stick there !! That will draw freezing cold easterly winds across Europe from Siberia.
    These cold east winds meeting Atlantic Lows , will result in heavy snow across Europe.
    Now, is this La Nina going to cause THAT?

  3. Let’s see.

    Average solar cycle is ~11 years.

    Last solar minimum circa N.H. Winter 2009.

    “Acquired January 7, 2010, this image shows snow blanketing England, from the east to west coast. The cities of Manchester, Birmingham, and London appear as ghostly gray shapes on the icy surface.

    Terra — MODIS”

    2009 + 11 means it is likely such a scenario somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere is about due, perhaps next January.

    Still, anything can happen.

  4. You know that the left is getting desperate when silicon valley is openly censoring. All the media seem willing to throw themselves under the bus trying to combat the obviously growing support for Trump. They know their public polls are lies because of what their internal polls are telling them.

    So far the current La Nina is still in a modest phase, according to the meter at WUWT.

  5. The increased rainfall potential in Australia associated with La Nina events are only significant for the eastern and northern edges of the landmass. The Pacific is nowhere near as important as the Indian Ocean for the great majority of Australia’s weather. Of course, Sydney is on the Pacific, so those facts hardly matter.

  6. The warmists are in for a nasty surprise !
    I’ve given up feeling sorry for them.
    They have been so deeply Bamboozled as Carl Sagan would have said and it’s nearly impossible to change the mind of such a person as they cannot admit to ever having been taken in.
    Arrogant fools, I’ve been bamboozled and don’t mind admitting it.
    I thought the moon landings were real as a child and that some guy in a cave outdid homeland security. How naive I was.

  7. ENSO moved to on the line for1 on the neg side this week;-)))
    and Aus has some ripper rains n storms forecast already this coming week
    huge electrical storms already on the way across Aus
    lets see the rains!

  8. I started up my furnace on September 9. I have never, in 15 years, had to do that until now.
    I’m waiting for an early snowfall on my front steps, and since I get up early anyway, the camera battery is charged up and ready.
