La Nina is Coming Back to Texas Later This Year – We’ll All Be Dead Already 1

The bad weather news continues to hit Texas hard.  The Climate Prediction Center has issued a La Nina watch after declaring the last La Nina was over.  That means less rain and warmer temperatures.  Of course we’ll all be roasted like peanuts long before she comes back to see us.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Climatologists said Thursday that the La Nina conditions that have contributed to Texas’ worst drought in decades may re-occur later this year — troubling news for the state’s beleaguered farmers and ranchers who also learned there was likely no relief in sight.

The Climate Prediction Center issued a La Nina watch on Thursday, just two months after declaring the last La Nina had ended. The phenomenon, which is marked by a cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, typically results in less rain for southern states.

It was only part of the bad news for Texas, which has been in a prolonged drought along with neighboring Oklahoma and New Mexico: The U.S. Drought Monitor predicted most of the state would remain in “exceptional” drought — its highest classification — through the end of October.
