La Nina is one of the phases of the El Nino Southern Oscillation, and it occurs when ocean temperatures in the southern Pacific Ocean drop slightly below their average.
"If La Nina conditions develop, we predict it will be weak and potentially short-lived, but it could still shape the character of the upcoming winter", said Mike Halpert, deputy director of the NOAA center. He added that, "Basically the effect of a larger scale climate pattern that's moving through because of La Niña doesn't really have an effect on what we might see from lake effect".
The rest of the country falls into the "equal chance" category, which means there is an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures because there is not a strong enough climate signal in these areas to shift the odds.
