Tomer notes that the strength of the current La Niña means we might have a ‘warm, dry fall and a late start to winter for a lot of the west.’ The rest of the winter will pretty much mirror the previous two, which is good news for the PNW, British Columbia, Alberta, and the northern states; Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming, as well as the northeast of New England.

California can expect a below-normal snow winter causing the drought conditions to deepen.
