Meteorologists are pretty confident the La Niña conditions we’ve seen all year are going to be with us at least a few months longer. There’s a 91% chance the La Niña conditions last from September to November, the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center said in an update Thursday. Those odds have strengthened since the meteorologists’ last update in August… California isn’t projected to have a particularly wet or particularly dry fall, but it’s winter meteorologists will be keeping an extra close eye on. If La Niña continues, it’ll be the third La Niña winter in a row – a rare phenomenon we’ve only seen twice since 1950.
