El Niño is expected to strengthen this winter.
This could lead to a warmer and drier winter in the southern United States.
The northern United States and Canada may experience a colder and snowier winter.
Forecasters are predicting a weak to moderate El Niño, which means the effects may not be as extreme as in previous years.
Other factors, such as the Arctic Oscillation and the Madden-Julian Oscillation, can also impact winter weather patterns.
It's important to remember that winter weather is unpredictable and can vary greatly from region to region.
