This might be the last week we hit a high of 80 this year, and this winter could be a rough one. The National Weather Service has issued a La Niña advisory and explains, " La Niña’s altered atmospheric circulation over the Pacific Ocean affects global weather and climate. Generally, La Niña winters in the southern tier of the US tend to be warmer and drier, while the northern tier and Canada tend to be colder."
