First thoughts on my end. Several years in the 80's did pop out on my list. Most noteworthy is 80-81. Several years featured a nice ENSO, PDO and QBO match a few others matched two of three. Overall this process would suggest just below normal snow for the upcoming winter. I'll do monthly breakdowns of these years when i have a chance. ENSO ( neutral, week nina) PDO ( negative) QBO ( positive with summer peak)
62-63 20.5 inches of snow ( no QBO data)
80-81 15.4 inches of snow
85-86 16.4 inches of snow ( BAD PDO)
90-91 14.6 inches of snow
01-02 4.0 inches of snow ( BAD QBO)
Don't think we will have the modeled west based el-nino by both the CFS and ECMWF, expecting there more favorable solutions to become more average to blah. Hopefully not scary like 01-02. Maybe the Siberian snowcover impresses me.
Some of this did match in well with Tony's idea on the teleconnection state.
