La Nina is a weather phenomenon that arises from the temperatures of Pacific Ocean waters affecting the course of the Pacific and Polar jet streams. La Nina years typically bring wet falls (from increased Atlantic and Gulf storms) and dry winters (by bumping up the Polar jet stream) to southern Colorado. This year looks to be a dry one, but Rain & Shine’s team is holding out for the famous variability of our region in hopes for some snow!
