25 JUNE 1998. LA NINA ENN reports that NOAA predicts a strengthening La Niña event may bring a cold, wet early winter to the Northwest. The Southeast should have a wamer winter than usual as La Niña takes effect this fall and winter. Warm and dry conditions will prevail in Texas and the Southwest. Weather conditions are likely to be more variable as the jet stream will be over the U.S., not to the south, in Mexico.
