La Niña Holding On

Record #:
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Pacific cold sea surface event called La Niña is persisting and is predicted to hold on into 2000. The longer-term climate effects in North Carolina could be a continued deficit of normal rainfall into the spring. Because La Niña increases hurricane activity in the Atlantic, the state could see increased storm activity in the fall and short-term relief from drought conditions.
