That's funny. Both would work for us for different reasons.

TBH I would take the EPS as the negative AO is shredding Everything. Sure we would be at a cutter risk but would setup trailing wave potential.

GEFS could still work but more light event potential.

At some point we WILL snow. 

That's some pretty good disagreement. Uncertainty seems to be on tap for now.

Any OP run past 5 days is in weenie land. Even 3+ days is a lot. 

Ensembles still look iffy with continued -PNA. If blocking were stronger we could've counteracted it. 

Right now things look very cutterish.

 

I would take that over the meat grinder look we have now. Get the cutter to bring in cold and trailing weak wave to produce. NOT a great look but better than now.

Until I see some changes near Indonesia at this point, I'm extremely skeptical. Models have been underestimating that area the whole time. I'm interested to see NOAA's update.

I agree with you. I doubt we ever see it actually go into phase 8. This is shades of several winters ago when the models wanted to go phase 8 from November through March and it never happened

The VP anomalies chart and forecast tells the whole story with the very impressive La Niña standing wave near 120 E.

Yeah, I mean here's today's satellite example. Just acting like the anchor that it has been all along. To me, this is the main driving force for the Pacific Ridge and resulting -PNA thus far. This is a known area for doing exactly that. We could use some subsidence to to try and knock this down somewhat. Especially on the western flank. But even the last attempt at that wasn't very effective. Models have been continually weakening this late in their runs, but its been an erroneous endeavor to date.

This La Niña and -PDO mean business, very well coupled. As you pointed out that Niña standing wave is one of the strongest in history. If we don’t see a major SSW and we follow Niña climo, we are probably going to torch starting by late January and February…..

It's well correlated with this impressive warm pool in the WPac.  The problem isn't just the standing wave as it's also generating Rossby waves that are continuing to cause wave breaking and amping this Aleutian ridge.  It's a tough cycle to break out of right now.

 

It can snow, but it is significantly more difficult with this background state and it continues to be conducive to causing this PNA to dip and a lack of appreciable HP in Eastern Canada, especially with the Atlantic side looking as it does.

 

I think there are sub seasonal periods where you might be able to hit the sweet spot if you can eject a KW and/or get some westward propagation from an ERW timed with that.  Breaks the cycle of wave breaking for a few days and may allow the Aleutian ridge to roll over and dump some of this further east.

 

But right now this remains a challenge.

Thank you for posting your thoughts on this. I'm pleased to see the first part lining up with what I was thinking on the same matter.

Strat forecast can only be taken 2 weeks at a time. If we were to get a ssw it wouldn’t show up in the long range. I also question that tweet a bit, as the Pv will be taken a hit to start January 

I agree. Even 2 weeks is tentative. So much depends on the total hemispheric pattern. Which we're struggling with on guidance right now. Are we confident how that's going to look? I'm not. I do see the shots it's taking currently too. It's not like it's sitting at the pole all cozy like we've seen in the past. The continued disconnect is interesting. I feel like we don't see that very often.

Yeah, I just don’t get why the definite statements. Take it two weeks at a time. 
 

agree, the vortex is not super strong like 19/20 where it was lights out. We will have chances in January
