In general there isn't much correlation because there are so many factors that influence weather patterns.

However, in the Great Lakes Region, cold winters, regardless of precipitation, will usually be followed by cool summers (greater lake-effect cooling), and dry winters, regardless of temperature, often may lead to hot summers (air heats faster over dry ground).

Again, this is a huge generalization; weather patterns are complicated.

Not in the current weather pattern on the west coast - dry and warm winter followed by dry and warm summer followed by dry and warm winter right up until the overall global pattern shifts and we go back into a heavy wet cycle.

We've been in a La Nina pattern, followed by what they have been calling "La Nada" (neither El Nino or La Nina). Eventually it will likely shift back to an El Nino and we'll get wetter cooler conditions.

Here is the current "guesstimate" for the next three months - for us in the west, it shows a likelihood of warmer temps and lower precip.
