La Nina for sure. The main place I check this early in the season is: - Snow Reports and Ski Weather Forecasts for Colorado, Utah, California, Vermont and the US -

The "long range discussion" for this area says:

Long range forecast / discussion...October 12 to 15

--We see continued mostly sunny and fall-like conditions for a good part of next week, under weak-ish high pressure ridging aloft. Another Gulf of Alaska storm and chance for snow may move in after the 11th/ 12th (we may see a 1 or 2 day delay with this one). This storm looks most likely colder, with single digit and low teen (Fahrenheit, at 10,000ft) air punching into the northwest US. We would expect another shot of snow then by late next week or so. A few day period of warming and mostly sunny weather will likely follow that.

It looks like we will see a La Nina SST pattern this fall/ winter period. The southern Hemisphere was affected by colder and more "snowy" than average weather overall during our summer. We will be talking about what all this means for the upcoming season, and are working on coming up with a good outlook. We will update the long range forecast, and talk about the influence of La Nina on coming patterns this upcoming season as well. CM

.....not exactly super detailed, but if you do a little searching at:

NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

you will find all the details you want.
