The Seattle area is heading into another La Niña winter. Here’s what that means

The Seattle Times

The temperature in Seattle dropped to 38 degrees at 4 a.m. Tuesday and dipped down further, to 36 degrees by 6 a.m., breaking the previous daily record low of 39 degrees in 1946, according to the National Weather Service of Seattle.

And it looks like this coming winter could be colder — and probably wetter — than usual.

The government’s top forecasters at the Climate Prediction Center believe that based on the sea-surface temperature trends in the Pacific Ocean, the Seattle area could be in for La Niña winter again this year.
