Cold

(Undated) -- Mike Halpert of N-O-A-A’s Climate Prediction Center says the cooling of Pacific Ocean temperatures—known as La Nina  --- will lead to two different winters for the U-S. He says that could lead to a colder and wetter winter in Minnesota, and especially wetter conditions in the western half of the state. Halpert emphasizes La Nina makes the climate more predictable- but the factors could change.
