    I said I am not too crazy about it. I did not say I hate it.

    Meh. I'm not too crazy about this look. Is it just me?

    I think we all know that is an extremely unlikely solution, just having some fun. Don't go hyping.

    Meh. It's October. Let's let our NW posters pile up first.

    For posterity, everyone note these are going Normal temps for December and January. Meh...really do not want to a backloaded Winter this year. Much is going against that working out for us. Just this guy's opinion. Can still fare well with a N temp regime in Dec-Jan, but this Winter has been hyped to some degree. Normal isn't going to cut it at this juncture.

    Meh. I wouldn't get too excited about this. It's just too early, and in many prior cases, persistent early season cold like this has not been a good thing. If this were November 15th, than this would excite me much more. We are still 2-3 weeks away from really being able to nail down anything concrete about this Winter.
  10. Well, I'm also concerned about the ENSO state. Not convinced the current region 1+2 cooling is long term. The next 2-3 weeks are critical, as always. You don't need to worry about me putting all my eggs in one indicator basket.

    Too early to say, I think that was my point above.

    That was the FV3 last night. It's on the 6z GFS. That's also a different storm. Alas, I think the point is...big storm potential at the end of the month as has been noted by @antmasiello_HM, @earthlight, @NSFW Weather Guy and others.

    Good news on the surface (see what I did there? ). However, an abundance of tropical systems in the EPAC might be welling up cooler temps and making this only temporary cooling in region 1+2. That’s definitely what is causing the rapid cooling off the coast of Mexico. I really want to see a traditional Modoki El Niño. Not interested in a basin-wide event. Will cause problems for the cities come Winter.
  14. For the record, I am in the camp of people who are concerned about QBO implications, especially as we move into the second half of the winter. This is a very underrated indicator and I do agree that the rapid transition to positive will have an impact later this winter. I think many are erroneously believing February will be the coldest and snowiest month. Think we have one shot at a pattern changing snow event early in February, but then we’re basically done after mid-month. I do believe the -EPO and active STJ will propel us to at least normal snow in December and January.
