History has shown this is the beginnings of the blueprint to a bad bad winter. Will it be a 5-10 inch winter or 2019-2020 is still up for debate 

You know the writing is on the wall for strong -NAO blocking to show up in April right?

It's going to be a way above normal Winter and a cold and nasty Spring.

I have no idea if winter will be a complete fail or lousy (I’m personally getting more pessimistic since I have a coating to show for a La Nina December which we want to at least be decent if we want a snowy Nina winter), but we’re due for payback for our stretch of big winters since 2000. No question about that.

Almost looks like a hybrid El Niño/La Niña pattern. That strong Aleutian Low is right out of of the January El Niño playbook. The SE Ridge is classic La Niña. So we get a compromise Pacific Jet location north of STJ and south of the typical La Niña Jet. Plenty of precipitation for places like California and a parade of mild storms across the US. We are probably looking at top 10 or even top 5 warmth for January 1-15. The one bright spot will be reduced heating demand against the record high energy price backdrop.

Brutal. 19-20 repeat. Winter is over

Some can’t deal, the minute you accept that it’s out of your control and it’s going to do what it wants to do it gets better. 
 

We do summer very well around here now so their is always that 

I totally admit it’s extremely upsetting to me. It’s very hard to accept what we’re staring down for a couple weeks :unsure:.

fwiw:  This topic started 12/24... in part because I was cued by what I was seeing the 22nd-23rd in the GFS op.  

From 12z/22-18z/29 (4 GFS cycles/day), have seen some sort of broad area positive snow depth change in 15 of the 29 cycles by Jan 7, mainly nw-ne suburbs.   Uncertainty for sure, but a sign that the model is sitting on the fence regarding cold enough for snow-ice in the northwest-northeast suburbs around Jan 6-7.  

Yes, it could be misleading to think it might snow around Fri-Sat Jan 6-7 in the suburbs, but the firehose of disturbances crossing the USA near 35N may provide snow-ice opportunities 6th onward, in part because the 12z/29 50+ member NAEFS (GEFS/GEPS) has the 200mb jet near or south of 35N Jan 6 (00z/7) onward.  If that happens, I would think some cold air will bleed south to near the jet axis. 12z/29 example attached for the BL temp and its model variability at the stated time near 00z/7.  Could this be too cold? From a GFS op standpoint,  this has been an option since 12/22 12z cycle.   Polar Wx probs for >1" of snow are still very low via the GEFS so I need to keep this toned down to the bleak projection of many in the forums.  

In the meantime, I'll take a small starter wintry event here in far nw NJ around Jan 6-7 and be happy.

I do not put much faith in any model over a week out. No model had this near historic heat coming just a few weeks ago, so middle of January flip a coin as to whether it will be warm or cold. I tend to think it will flip back to cold for another few weeks, but I do not think this is going to be a great winter. Just looking at the next week it will be hard to even make snow in Vermont, let alone how much the temps will chew at the already predominately man made base. I feel more and more each year for the smaller mountains having to charge astronomical rates just to cover the costs of covering the mountain in man-made snow. Even if we have a warm winter it would be nice to at least have 20 degree nights in the mountains to pump out the snow.

It’s only a matter of time before NYC goes T for a winter. You can’t just keep getting warmer and deny that. Unless your JB.

I had zeroes across the board for most of the area! I can’t wait for my free dinner.
