Update: See below.
For so early in the winter, snow cover is quite extensive (click to enlarge maps):
However, there is some good news here: There is no widespread severe drought anywhere in the contiguous United States.
WeatherData's and AccuWeather's meteorologists will be watching this closely.
We did a little research and looked at El Ninos since 1950 then screened for the El Nino values similar to December 2009's with eye toward any predictive value with regard to spring rains at Wichita's National Weather Service station at Mid-Continent Airport.
Here were the results. Four years had values approximately equal to 2009's.
1986 135.1% of normal rainfall in spring of 1987 (March through May)
While an admittedly small sample, it would seem reasonable to conclude that greater than normal rainfall is a real possibility this spring, causing further concerns about future flood potential.
