Since we are in a moderate El Nino cycle for the winter this year, what is the consensus for snow pack on the mountain? Are temps going to be above average??

Have you looked at any recent El Ninos and its effects on Mount Washington?

I'm not sure the effects of El Nino are as defined in New England as they are in other parts of the world. A slightly warmer winter may not mean less snow.

I thought that El Nino has global effects. The NWS is saying the North East is supposed to be warmer and drier this winter due to its existence. I really don't know how El Nino effects the mountains in New Hampshire so I was just wondering what changes they might be expecting if any.
