La Nina Winters In Baltimore

With a La Nina pattern in the Pacific (cooler than normal sea surface temperatures), there is no clear climate signal to determine what kind of winter we can expect around here.  We’ve had very snowy La Nina winters (62.5″ in 1995 – ’96) and La Nina winters with very little snow (6.2″ in 1950 – ’51).  But, if you look at all 19 La Nina winters since 1950, this pattern seems to produce winters with below normal snowfall.

  1. Hello Tom, My question for you is Would you think based on the winter we had last season that this season would be less snowy? It seems to me that when we have a El Nino winter that it is followed by a La Nina Winter. Just wondering. Thank You for giving me this opportunity to comment. Have a Wonderful Day! Your fan, Roland
