La Niña

La Niña is characterized by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific (unlike its brother El Niño, which is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific). Each La Niña event is unique and can vary in strength, impact and duration. The current La Niña is quite strong and forecasters cannot rule out the possibility that it might last throughout the year.
