9 Sep 10 - "La Nina occurs when the surface water near the equator tends to be cooler than normal in the eastern Pacific Ocean," says Glenn Farley of KING 5 News in Seattle. "El Nino is the opposite, as warm water pushes up against central and south America."

"On Thursday, NOAA's Climate Prediction Center issued a new advisory about La Nina, saying it strengthened during August."

"Nearly all models predict La Nina to continue at least through early 2011," the report's authors said, adding, "La Nina will begin to exert an increasing influence on the weather and climate of the United States. These impacts include an enhanced chance of above-average precipitation in the Pacific Northwest."

"La Nina is likely to bring less precipitation to the Southwest and portions of the middle and lower Mississippi Valley. It also amps up the Atlantic hurricane season.

"According to the Climate Prediction Center, "It is likely that the peak strength of this event will be at least moderate... to strong."

"The last three La Ninas have been double dippers," says leading NOAA Research Scientist Mike McPhaden. "They've gone on for two winter seasons."
