“The El Niño is on its way out. It brought more rain in some areas plus lower summer food and cooling prices. But his sister is coming, and La Niña is no lady.

The El Niño weather pattern has been in place since last summer over the central Pacific Ocean; it brought above-average rainfall and surprisingly warm temperatures. However, the waters are cooling even more quickly than experts thought it would.

Unfortunately, this means scientists are expecting its twin sister, the cold, dry La Niña to arrive even earlier. The result will affect farms, pastures and, yes, your lawn and garden.

You see, when one-tenth of the world’s surface gets unusually hot or cold, it changes global weather. El Niño (which is Spanish for “The Boy) was named by South Americans for the Christ child and brings lovely moderate wet summers here in the US. La Niña (which is Spanish for “The Girl”) is just the opposite. The La Niña is a real, cool chick. 

It’s happening quickly. Last month, the El Niño was very strong—er—hot. Now the event is weak, barely above the 0.5°C (0.9°F) needed to qualify as an El Niño. By next month, it will probably be average, neither hot, nor cold. Ahhh—average!”
