"The Northeast doesn’t have a well-defined set of expectations during an El Niño winter. The region can be milder overall like its other northern counterparts, but it can also be at the mercy of robust coastal storms moving along the Atlantic Coast."

"A very strong El Niño during the 2015-2016 winter contributed to the warmest winter on record for the US mainland, according to NOAA. The warm winter didn’t prevent massive snowstorms, including a deadly blizzard that brought East Coast travel to a standstill."

"The 2009-2010 winter was the last with an El Niño of the same forecast strength as this year. [...] The season was notorious for multiple blizzards slamming the Northeast in rapid succession."
