    Sunspot numbers are very low -- Cycle 24 has begun but more 2009 has seen more days without sunspots than with.  The cycle is supposed to kick in any day now -- just as it was supposed to kick in any day over the last 500+

    Temperature anomalies  Temperature anomalies in the ENSO 3.4 region have risen above 1 C over the month, 1.5 C over the week.  There is a large area of anomalously warm water heading to the surface of the eastern Pacific, and October's chill has given way to a balmy November in the Midwest.  

    This would indicate a warm winter.  

    I would not discount the possibility of a repeat or exceedance of the 1997-98 El Nino, though planning Christmas on Chicago's beaches is, as yet, premature.
