La Niña has returned to the Pacific Ocean, bringing along drier weather to southern California, which had hoped for a wet winter to combat drought, along with loads of precipitation in the northeast.

This event is referred to a ‘double-dip La Niña’ because it formed a year after a previous system. 

Bob Larson, expert senior meteorologist for Accuweather, told DailyMail.com that the northeast will have a warmer winter, but it will endure above average snowfall.

'The snowfall forecast for New York City is, on average, 29.8 inches, but our prediction is up to 32 inches,' Larson said. 

It has an 87 percent chance of lingering until February 2022, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  

The northwest region is set to experience a wet season, while southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Utah and Colorado will be hit with a dry spell. 

Larson told Dailymail.com that the earliest signs of La Niña are expected to appear next week.

'There is already evidence of this pattern and in a week to 10 days, we will see a storm slamming into the West Coast that will stay in northern California,' he said. 

'This could be a preview of what we could see this winter due to la Niña.'
