Due to the strengthening La Niña weather pattern, forecasters at the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center (CPC) had a gloomy forecast in November for folks most ravaged by extreme drought.

CPC analysts say forecasts favor improvement across the northern Great Basin, northern Rockies and northern High Plains. Further south though, they explain, "The odds for improvement diminish, with drought persisting across central and southern California along with the Southwest. A widespread area of drought development is expected from the southern Rockies into the southern Plains, Gulf Coast and Florida...

"Year-to-date rainfall deficits range from 15-20 in. in the area of exceptional drought centered in northern parts of Alabama and Georgia. Drought will likely persist in these areas along with the Carolinas."

The good news for folks in those areas is that, by definition, meteorologists, like economists, are wrong on average.

we got rain today, amazing.  should be enough to send it everyone's way except in the georgia area probably.  interesting that wind speeds were measured at 130mph in seattle i think which is kind of amazing.  i guess the hurricanes moved from the caribb to the northwest.  amazing that forecast has been soooooooooooo wrong the last two years.

I'm still amazed that you guys can't find hay but our phones aren't ringing here in Texas where you can barely give it away this year.
