Holy crap look at the WAAAARRMMMMM BLOB IN THE GOA AND THE BS!! Also.look at the very warm waters up and around Greenland - could this finally lead to some much ghost like Blocking?? From JB site

Interesting stats mugs with the correlation with IO sea temps and how it effects our winters. Would love to see another epic winter like back in 96. I measured 78 inches that year!

Weak La Nina actually Neutral
1.2 is positive
3 slight neg
3.4 negative
4 neutral

When there is a neutral ENSO present, all that means is that feature will not be the driving force of our winter. We are then dependent on other features to decide our fate. The PDO, AO, NAO, EPO, and to an extent the QBO come into play. The more of those that work in our favor, the better chance to have a great winter. As of now we may very well have most if not all of them on our side. I'm tempering my excitement for now, after all its only September.

We are having an El Nino hangover and there is still good warmth in the Pac and the IOD is cool very cool like as Sroc showed in 14-15 - so what is now in our favor:

PDO is Positive and the warm blob in the GOA will/should prodcue an EPO Negative
QBO is Positive from what I see

2015 -26.70 -28.62 -28.15 -24.38 -12.33 2.18 7.45 10.97 12.07 13.38 12.79 11.39
2016 9.34 6.77 3.16 0.64 2.37 3.86 6.25 10.07

I personally think we are in a La Nina weak state as we head into winter

Solar low as evidence in this chart



We shall see

It's all trivial, never saw a threat for a strong Nina so not sure why there was ever a "Nina watch", overall idea has not changed, the clustering is just tighter. Latest ENSO models.

http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_advisory/figure7.gif

As you can see, we are in a weak Nina state at the moment, and will likely remain here and creep up towards neutral as we head into fall and winter, towards the end of winter, may actually hit winter or technically become a weak Nino, but again, basically neutral.

Euro seasonal
A good look at this range.
JB wrote up it had the same kind of look in 2013 bit more so 2014 and u need to push the cold east with the warm PDO and GOA argues for a protracted block on both sides from the sst, we like.blocky pattens over the pac and more so over the atlantic this remains to be seen


NAO block look

I really find this interesting. I'm not sure I'm sold on this idea of La Nina cancel just yet. If I have some time I may try to elaborate as to why.

From JB A slight CHANGE IN Nina - NWS/NOAA may have jumped the gun





CFSv2 has gone from this

Good post mugs. Whether we have a weak Nina or go neutral, it won't make that much of a difference for us. Its all about how the other anomalies behave which will decide our fate. Good to see the PDO will likely remain positive which is great.

That and the fact that the ONI sits at -0.3 with the month of sept looking to bring the SOI running means close to +8.0. Although sub surface temps have cooled some over the last two months they are still cool.

Re: Long Range Thread 12.0

Post by Frank_Wx on Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:49 pm

There are a few things worth paying attention to as we begin to speculate the upcoming winter. 

1) The behaviour of the QBO this summer has been interesting. Westerly winds were very strong winter 2015-2016. If you recall, the Stratospheric PV was anomalous and even though it battled a couple of warming events it remained very stubborn over the Pole. Westerly winds at 30mb remain pretty strong (not to the extent of this past winter though) and this has cut-off the downward propagation of easterly winds. According to Holton & Tan, SSWE are more likely to occur when the QBO is in an easterly phase and the stubbornness of the QBO to stay westerly to this point is worth noting. 

2) 850mb wind anomalies are forecasted to bring strong easterly winds to the Dateline. This event will begin later this weekend and last into the beginning of October. There is a good chance this jump starts La Nina and helps cool temps fairly rapidly at ENSO 3.4 region. I would expect a weak La Nina to form despite the hesitancy some dynamical models are showing. We're exiting one of the strongest El Nino episodes on record. Historically, the Equatorial Pacific balances itself out by following up with a La Nina event. NOAA actually removed the ENSO watch and dropped chances of La Nina to form to 40%. The next update is not until October 14th. If this surge of easterly winds does not cool the Tropical Pac, then we're likely to see ENSO-Neutral conditions this winter. 

3. Sea surface temps in the northern Pacific are warm. The warm "blob" has returned and it does not show signs of letting up. Granted it's still very early before we get to Meteorological winter, but I would think if La Nina does begin to come on strong then that could detract some of the warming in the NPAC. Regardless, we're still in a +PDO phase and that should not chance as we head into winter. So, expect warmer than normal SST's off the west coast and toward the north-central PAC this winter. How anomalous the warmth is will determine whether or not we see strong -EPO/+PNA episodes to help counteract the +NAO (yes, I do not like the prospects of a -NAO this winter but still early). Meanwhile, SST's in the northern Atlantic have been on a cooling trend the last 10 days, but overall they've warmed significantly since the winter and it will be interesting to see if SST's remain above normal off our coast. 

4. Solar activity is on the decline and we're headed to our minimum in the year 2020. The relationship between the QBO and solar cycle is an interesting one and I'll look to uncover additional detail by the time my winter outlook comes out.

Lots more to come...

Re: Long Range Thread 12.0

Post by Isotherm on Mon Sep 12, 2016 11:45 pm

The problem I have w/ the warm pool argument is that I've yet to see/read any convincing evidence demonstrating causation or even a plausible analysis regarding its supposed induction of higher than normal heights. In the warm season, I think the mid latitude waters tend to play larger role due to the poleward contracting jet and overall warmer SST's. But in mid winter, I have a difficult time believing that 47 degree water will build a ridge south of Alaska but 43-44 degree water won't. The energy differential isn't impressive even though we see these monster warm anomalies; the water is still cold. Don't get me wrong, I do believe there's an influence, most probably with feedback and maintenance, absent stronger forcing. But my personal view is that there's limited evidence it's a significant "driver" of the hemispheric or global pattern.



I do notice cooling in the Indian Ocean recently; that will be interesting to track insofar as CCKWs, MJO and tropical forcing propagation. We'll probably have more classic Nina forcing this year, even if we don't manage to officially cross the weak Nina threshold.



I posted last month that I didn't like the early signals for a -NAO winter either. As you noted, there are other factors to examine as the autumn progresses, so this can change. There are some smoke and mirror correlations associated with NAO forecasting as well, and I think some of those have become more evident over recent autumns.



The QBO is in uncharted territory, so it's difficult to assert whether it'll normalize over the coming months or not. The extreme burst of westerly momentum via the troposphere probably induced by the super Nino event ended up decelerating the downwelling stratospheric easterlies. In any event, yes, the interplay of the QBO/Solar activity is something I monitor too. There are sometimes aberrations; however, due to other exogenous variables, which can either promote less or more blocking than expected.



If I was forced to make a call right now, it would be poleward Aleutian ridge in conjunction with a stronger than average polar vortex, yielding a cold Rockies/Mid-west and tight gradient across the Northeast with areas further north performing better cold/snow wise.

Track...These statements alone cannot be translated yet into what it means for our upcoming winter.  In general when you see the SOI increase as it is currently, and forecast to do over most of the this month it typicaly means a stronger easterly(coming from the east moving west) component to the winds over the Tropical Pac.  Picture the Tropical Pac like a big bath tub with the western side where the warm water is running.  In general the western Trop Pac has warmer water temps than the eastern half.  



Now picture you have a giant Fan blowing over the surface of the bathtub(Trop Pac).  If the Fan is placed on the western side (westerly winds) faceing east towards the Americas then you might visualize the warmer waters being pushed east.  If those westerly winds persist long enough(which will often times be seen when the SOI is strongly negative) and strong enough, then the warmer western Pac ends up mixing with the cooler waters to the east warming them to above normal temps relative to average....El Nino conditions.  Currently the SOi is such that Easterly winds are predicted to be anomalously strong over the next month.  Place the Fan on the eatern side of the Pac and push the warmer waters back west and aloww the cooler sub surface waters to rise to replace the water being pushed west cooling the Trop Pac...La Nina conditions.  Of course this is very simply put but the overall idea is there.  

In general the Trop Pac, because its such a huge body of water relative to the rest of the globe, plays one of the most important roles in setting up the pattern going into winter months; however, its not the only piece to the puzzle.  This discussion is simply monitoring one parameter that will influence the outcome of the winter.  Patience for now is needed as we still have a few more months to see where all the different drivers to the weather system, Trop Pacific, indian ocean, Northern Pac, Atlantic SST, snow cover in Siberia, stratosphere to name but a few) set up before making predictions on how the winter unfolds in a specific region.

Almanac has been decent for the past few years but just bought this years for the crap of it and forecast looks unusually bad. Calling for below normal November I think by a degree, and very warm December averaging warmer than November by a degree departing 6 degrees above normal! For most of us theyre predicting "above normal snowfall north (new england, boston) below normal central (us), near normal south, above average precipitation north, near normal south. I believe they call for January-Mar to be the coldest and snowiest (not surprising) but not sure I agree with a warmer December than November but we'll see.

SST Anomaly change



Look st the subsurface - not that cool




This is subsiding by my eye and the SOI is I would say in response to some other weather event - read that seasonal pressure changes in this SPAC region ten to cause these Rosby Waves to occur - could be wrong but time will tell.

Lets compare this years blob
currrent


to 2014-15 Winter season



Lets hope it holds and deepens as we move through the fall - no upwelling by recurving typhoons please!!
