La Niña Potential Impact on Southern California
At the Naumann Law Firm, we strive to deliver high-quality legal services to our clients. The cornerstone of our service is to maintain regular and ongoing communication with our clients.
Recently in the news it has been pointed out that La Niña has started to form in the Pacific North West. It is easy to forget the difference between La Niña and El Niño. Generally, El Niño’s bring wet weather to the region. San Diego last experienced a weak El Niño in 2019. La Niña is the opposite, it generally keeps us dry and warm. Here in SoCal we are known for our comfortable weather, but with the news of La Niña incoming, it has the potential to be a deadly and damaging winter.
According to climatologist Bill Patzert, “Typically speaking, La Niña’s turn out dry for Southern California, and El Niño’s turn out wet. But not always.” La Nina’s are often associated with colder, stormier-than-average conditions and increased precipitation across the northern parts of the US.
At this time half of San Diego and most of San Bernardino and Riverside are abnormally dry. If the La Niña turns out to be as predicted, it could continue an already historically bad fire season.
Here are some tips to prepare your home during the upcoming dry season:
⦁ Prepare and store an emergency kit. Some items include water, non-perishables, prescriptions, cash, masks, and priceless items.
⦁ Keep your gutters, pergolas, and roofs free of debris, leaves, and branches.
⦁ Trim tree branches that overhang within 10 feet of your home.
⦁ Trim tree limbs 10 feet above the ground.
⦁ Keep lawns watered and mowed.
