October 21, 2016

“The forecast is leaning heavily on the rejuvenated La Nina in the tropical Pacific,” said Alabama state Climatologist Dr. John Christy on Thursday. ”These cooler-than-average sea temperatures between Hawaii and French Polynesia tend to steer storms a little more to our north, leaving us with a greater chance of being on the warmer/drier side as they pass by.”
