Just an observation ... but it seems the gradient weakened a little ( overall ..orbital perspective ) bit less than a week ago, and this ridge seemed to immediately balloon.

Meanwhile, prior...we had a cold pattern and early tantalizing notions of winter and of course the significant realization/event came of that ...and while that was happening, heights between Florida and Bermuda ...never really deflated... 

I used to refer to the "Miami Rule" ... it was basically:   if the heights over MIA were greater than 582 dm, and the balanced geostrophic winds were above 30 kts at 500 mb ...that means that S/W are entering a destructive interference pattern ... when ejecting E of 110 W/ along ~ mid latitudes.  

This strikes me as related... The snow event we experienced was along a narrow latitude - which is consistent with fast flow neggie interference ... stretching in the longitude.  The event's specific morphology fit - 

Also, as soon as the flow 'relaxed' in a large eddy sense of it...the ridge immediately ...almost reflexively bounces back -   ... 

Interesting... 

The autman has two distinct complexions ... and this also fits with the observation that there is a tendency for huge temperature variances - even relative to transition season typology - setting up along 45 N in the means...  We are going into late summer vs early winter across 300 naut mi over the Continent, which is ...6 hours of advection at any given region near-by from excessively flipping between the two.   But, what's intriguing is to see that without substantive cyclogenesis... Usually, big baroclinic variance results in deeper/larger system behavior. 

I think the speedy nature of the flow is inhibitory...leaving big gradients sort of 'unrealizing' in the means.   Just a hypothesis -

I remember and always use that.

Odd to be driving around with snow on the ground and yet I’m in shorts and t-shirt and the car says it’s 67F.

Well it happens here every April.

I’m going under 25” here . Think it’s going to be absolutely brutal 

I haven’t felt it either and you could tell Ray is a concerned as well that the under to his forecasted range has a good chance of hitting. 

It is what it is.

Hey if we’re right it’ll give us plenty of days for beer drinking , high times and yard work outdoors this winter. May reseed some areas in Jan or Feb , plant perennials etc

Low 60s here, with more to come.  Prior to this year, we've had 60+ in November 16 times in 22 years with only 1999 hitting the mark as many as 3 times.  Reached 71 in 2003 and 66 the year before while 63 (4X) is 3rd.  I'd guess that frequency will be eclipsed this month - might have 5-6 reach 60 - and we might get to the 66 but I doubt 71 is in play here.

Lol.. For any of you young-ens reading this, do not jump off the cliff.  We're bound to see some surprises this Winter

Yes, I've notice the "fold over -epo"...or whatever you called it....on the last few GFS runs.

Two different things ... -EPO vs the 'folding hypothesis'

 But they mimic one another... Folding is just high velocity flow over the Pac encountering the back-logging of the continent and that exaggerates the perennial N/A pattern response and makes the ridge in western Canada burgeon more frequently...

The EPO is basically the whole region from the N-central Pac to Alaska and N BC.... And heights can and do rise into blocking in that region from other reasons... related to everything from PDO to west Pac TC recurvatures... to R-waves.  

Hard to say ...but the GEFs have an AO dive still after the 16 and the NAO too... and those aren't really related to 'folding hypothesis' if you will.. So with the AO going down, and a few members of both the EPS and GFS ensembles buckin for the strong MJO phase 8... - it's thin but not zero chance for that signal to return in earnest.   we'll see...

For the record?  I don't see November going down 74 F as the mean high -

This evening's sunset was pretty good around 4:30pm.  Crazy how early the sun falls below the horizon this time of year. 

Very mild out too... felt like a late-summer evening, happening in the middle of the afternoon.  A mini-mud season.

Wave like feature curling over the Green Mtn Spine.

I was thinking it felt more like that first warm day in April when the snow is gone and you can finally open the windows again.
