I wouldn't start worrying about what next spring and summer will look like at this point. El Nino is most often associated with a shift in precipitation patterns along the west coast (wetter in the Southwest - actually good for a nobo - and drier in the Northwest), rather than specific temperature patterns, but in any case almost all the models favor a weak or very weak El Nino pattern this winter. Doesn't mean nothin' at this point.

Thinking ahead to my 2013 NOBO hike.... water challenges

*Elusive El Ni?o challenges NOAA?s 2012 U.S. Winter Outlook*

October 18, 2012

The western half of the continental U.S. and central and northern Alaska
could be in for a warmer-than-average winter, while most of Florida might
be colder-than-normal December through February, according to NOAA?s annual
Winter Outlook announced today from the agency?s new Center for Weather and
Climate Prediction in College Park, Md.

Forecasters with NOAA?s Climate Prediction Center say a wavering El Ni?o,
expected to have developed by now, makes this year?s winter outlook less
certain than previous years.
