"Though this year's La Niņa will be much like last year's, with average rainfall and colder-than-normal temperatures, we should see it abating since we're on the downside of this weather event," says Monteverdi.
Jan Null, Adjunct Professor of Meteorology and Certified Meteorologist for Golden Gate Weather Services: (415) 338-7728; (510) 657-2246; email@example.com
Null explains that Bay Area rainfall will remain fairly average this winter since the region is located between two extremes: the Pacific Northwest, which experiences heavier than normal rainfall and colder temperatures during La Niņa; and Southern California, which experiences drought conditions and cooler temperatures.
