La Niña To Fade, But Not Before Bringing Iowa Colder, Wetter Winter

Regional – The La Niña weather pattern will influence Iowa’s climate for the winter ahead, likely bringing wetter and colder-than-normal temperatures.

It’s the third winter in a row for La Niña, but observers do -not- expect it to make a fourth appearance. Meteorologist Doug Kluck, the climate services director for the central region of the National Weather Service, says they see La Niña fading early next year.

Kluck says they expect cooler, wetter weather for the region during December.

Kluck says the expectation for December through February is similar.

With La Niña fading, Kluck says the expectation is for more normal weather trends across North America.
