It is looking more likely that a weak La Nina (this post back in early June describes La Nina) will be the driver from the tropics this upcoming winter. Last winter, we had a very strong El Nino.
Take a close look at the snowfall numbers vs the 30 year average for these LA NINA years. I put this graphic together in early June. HINT...HINT!
Again, all of this is HIGHLY PRELIMINARY and will need to be updated in the fall. This is why no specifics are indicated just general thoughts.
