    Still months and months away but here are my vague general thoughts now:

    -Neutral ENSO (La Nada).

    -East still cold and snowy but not as snowy, winter spread out over a MUCH larger area.

    -(This is just gut feeling at the moment) Predominantly – NAO and -AO.

    You can see in this chart what happens with the winter temps when you combine ENSO phases and NAO/AO phases:

    None of those scenarios show below-average temperatures in Maine…   what types of conditions typically cause a winter like that of 08-09?

  4. FatherFrost says:

    A VERY strong La Nina. The winter you mentioned featured that but the La Nina it featured started in 07-08 warmed during the '08 Summer and then cooled off again in time for winter. At this point a La Nina that strong is not likely.
