La nina spells further drought

Experts say that a "la nina" weather pattern will dominate this winter....

A "La Nina" weather pattern is characterized by colder than usual temperatures (NOAA description). This creates a high pressure system that sits off of Southern California and redirects storms northward.

The result.....drought conditions.

Although we have had record rainfall in December and January, experts are calling for a drought. Therefore, our water deficit will continue and we need to continue conserving water in our yards and gardens.

Come by the next Ocean Friendly Gardens meeting to learn methods on how to conserve water and reduce urban run-off!!
