Forecasters say La Niña could show up a couple of months.
If so, January might start out like an Indian Summer. Remember how mild last winter was? Space City Weather's Eric Berger said La Niña might mean a little bit warmer and drier than the typical Texas winter.
“This year, I think we’ll see November and December be cooler than last year. Perhaps quite a bit cooler than normal. It’s the second half of the winter-January and February-where I think we might see a little more effects from La Nina.,” said Berger. “Having less rain than a typical winter, is usually okay, because it’s not hot, like in summer you don’t see the high evaporation rates. And, so if less rainfall in the winter, it typically doesn’t lead to drought.”
