La Nina climate event returning, forecasters say
Less than 50%:

Mike Halpert, deputy director of the federal Climate Prediction Center, says "this means drought is likely to continue in the drought-stricken states of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico."

Typical La Niña Impacts
La Niña tends to bring nearly opposite effects of El Niño to the United States wetter than normal conditions across the Pacific Northwest and dryer and warmer than normal conditions across much of the southern tier. The impacts of El Niño and La Niña at these latitudes are most clearly seen in wintertime. In the continental U.S., during El Niño years, temperatures in the winter are warmer than normal in the North Central States, and cooler than normal in the Southeast and the Southwest. During a La Niña year, winter temperatures are warmer than normal in the Southeast and cooler than normal in the Northwest.

Previous Cold Phases
La Niñas occurred in 1904, 1908, 1910, 1916, 1924, 1928, 1938, 1950, 1955, 1964, 1970, 1973, 1975, 1988, 1995
