One thing I am not liking for the looks of early season snowfall is the NAO, AO, and PNA and the EPO. The euro weeklies which are shown below go through November 25th and the trend looks to be around netural especially for the NAO and AO with a trend towards the positive side it looks like towards the end of the run. I also dont like the look of the PNA with the mean around the netural mark once again. What does this tell me? In my opinion the east coast will not see any decent snows until a least the beginning of december if these trends are right. Also any cold shots will be short lived. However if you are inland I personally think you could see at least some snow around the time frame of Halloween + or - a couple days obviously. Now one thing I do like though is the MJO forecast to be in phase 1 and it looks like it is forecasted to go into phase 8. Also another thing positive I see is the QBO continuing to decrease over the last few months. Currently it is around 8.25 (my computer wont let me post chart of qbo) and looks to be on a trend decreasing. If the QBO gets between -5 to 5 give or take, that usually is a good sign for winter lovers along the east coast. As we have all heard so far about low solar that is another good trend, but after last winter where we also had low solar I am taking that with a grain of salt for now. So overall on the coast dont expect decent snow anytime soon and in the longrun there are many bleh signs for this upcoming winter and some decent signs. Lets see where things go the next few weeks.
