NOAA releases 2018-19 Winter Outlook

According to NOAA, in ME, the three-month average snowfall in Portland, across December, January and February, is 14.8 inches, in Bangor 16.1 inches, and in Caribou, 23.4 inches. "The last cold winter that the country saw was back in 2013-14, and I'd expect MI to probably follow that pattern".
The balmy prediction is due to the roughly 75% chance of an El Niño developing. "Although a weak El Nino is expected, it may still influence the winter season by bringing wetter conditions across the southern United States, and warmer, drier conditions to parts of the North".
