Old Farmer's Almanac Says A Mild, Dry Winter Lies Ahead For CA
The Old Farmer's Almanac says a "season of shivers" with brutally cold temperatures and lots of snow awaits much of the United States this winter. In California, the almanac predicts a mild and dry winter.
The old almanac's prediction is not far off from what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast last month. There's a 70 percent chance that the Golden State could be in for another La Niña winter between November and January 2022, according to NOAA.
"Just saying there's going to be a La Niña doesn't mean it's going to be dry and drought," NOAA climate scientist Michelle L'Heureux told KTLA. "We have certainly had La Niña winters where, lo and behold, there's more precipitation than expected. That's just less common."
