The thing I remember about Pinatubo was the year without a summer (1992) and then the 1993-94 very cold and stormy winter. Going back to the 80s we also had El Chichon and some very cold winters in the early and mid 80s. Persistent Ridging in the Gulf of Alaska had a NW flow pattern for the general timeline of January 2013-December 2015. Edit to add on this was the general pattern for 2010-2012 which showed our area in a relatively warmer pattern. I will say smoothing over year to year doesn't do it justice but gives you a general idea of why things happened that way. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
