La Nina means colder and wetter in the NW

The National Weather Service is gearing up for a colder and wetter winter in the Pacific Northwest. Here is their map prediction for the winter, showing warm in the south and colder weather for us.

Pacific Northwest: colder and wetter than average. La Niña often brings lower than average temperatures and increased mountain snow to the Pacific Northwest and western Montana during the winter months, which is good for the replenishment of water resources and winter recreation but can also lead to greater flooding and avalanche concerns.

I guess we better be looking for our warm winter clothes this year if the pattern holds up!
