Both NOAA and the Old Farmer's Almanac are predicting normal temperatures which range from the upper 30's to the mid 40's for the beginning of Winter 2018 in Connecticut.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the warmer winter weather prediction is due to a decrease in solar activity and the arrival of El Nino which in many cases prevents chilly air masses from hanging around for too long.  If you could place a face on El Nino, what would it look like?
