It turns out that we are most likely entering another mild La Niña winter across the globe. This article, “La Nina Makes a Quiet Return”, describes how scientists are able to use data on sea surface temperatures from were made by altimeters on the Jason-2 and Jason-3 satellites, and show averaged sea surface height anomalies. Climatologists are predicting that this La Niña should last through the 2017-2018 winter period in the northern hemisphere, and then should change back to neutral conditions by late spring.

Be sure to become a member of the ENSO Phase III discussion group, and share your temperature, precipitation, and other weather data so we can compare and contrast how these parameters compare with the usual climatic conditions to see if your region is being impacted by these La Niña conditions.
