New York's weather has been abnormal so far this fall, but the current El Niño isn't the reason, according to the New York Post.

According to the Post, the current warm weather can be explained by Arctic Oscillation, a pattern in which winds circulated in a counterclockwise direction around the Arctic.

Spanish for the "little boy," or the "Christ child," El Niño is created when the equatorial waters of the Pacific Ocean warm significantly, according to the Post.

This year's El Niño is supposed to be the strongest since 1997-98, when an El Niño caused storms and flooding that caused billions of dollars in damage and killed nearly 200 people, the report said.

Forecasters also said El Niño isn't the reason for a number of odd recent weather trends that include a snowless Buffalo, N.Y., which, according to reports, hasn't happened this late in the season in more than 116 years.

Local temperatures in the coming days will hover in the upper 50s and lower 60s, according to The Weather Channel .
