La Nina is winding down and could end by the end of June. La Nina, which causes colder than normal water in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, has influence on weather patterns across the United States. La Nina usually causes drier winter weather across the South and wetter conditions across the Midwest. La Nina can enhance tropical storm activity across the Atlantic Basin during the late summer and fall as wind shear decreases and allows these storms to develop. We will likely move into a neutral phase over the coming months. The lingering impact of La Nina could still enhance tropical activity during the upcoming tropical season which begins June1.
