Most weather watchers now agree….A La Nina event is underway.

Dennis Todey  with the Midwest Climate Hub says the indications for La Nina conditions have persisted.

A La Nina occurs when Pacific Ocean surface temperatures trend below normal for several months.

Todey says this La Nina is kind of a light weight.

Todey says a La Nina normally means more cold and snow in the northern plains.

Todey says they expectation is that the La Nina will fade rather quickly next spring.
