Northeast and Mid-Atlantic
El Niño Prediction: Above-average snowfall and below-average temperatures.
"The Mid-Atlantic zone will benefit from cooler temps and more moisture," explains Gratz. Those cooler temps, which are common in El Niño years, will help with snowmaking at resorts in West Virginia and even North Carolina. Further north, the moisture should ensure plenty of snowfall in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.
