This year is an El Niño year, meaning air currents and weather patterns across the world are dramatically different from last year. Those changes are especially noticeable during the winter months, when severe snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures can be especially harsh. To help people prepare for the impending weather fluctuations, TIME has drawn up an infographic detailing the changes across the United States. Luckily, last year’s frost-bitten Northeast will get some relief with warmer-than-usual weather while California will get some much-needed rainfall. See the forecast for your city at TIME.
