John, has the El Nino continued to strengthen? I seem to recall that many Novembers in El Nino years are very cool, and the El Nino adverserly affects (from a snow lover's perpective) the weather from mid-December through January. Is that an accurate recollection? I don't mind unseasonably warm Novembers, especially in Chicagoland.

It has strengthened in the past few weeks. Not sure if that is what has caused the change from October, but the current pattern is very El Nino-like. Perhaps we can get it out of the way now and have it not impact as much of the winter.

I can add that many times the snow season will go out with a bang across the Northwoods, with several large spring storms.
