Is this average for the first Trace of snow, or measurable snow?

Good question. Honestly don't know it just said from the site average time period of 1st snowfall.

mugs this nina is not like 2007-8 look at the how much warmer the whole pac is....




so while we may end up with a weak to moderate nina will our sensible weather end up la nina like. ie; s/e ridge western trough? i am not sold on this winter acting like a typical nina. pac to warm.

if i had to make an educated guess att i would say warmer than normal temps and +snowfall for our area. why go against the trend of the last several winters.

Al,
East based Nina''s are good for the North East and MA regions with a Easterly QBO. Not all the ingredients for a bang bang winter but two in the right camp. PDO looks like a horeshoe or warmth overall. Still time. Looks like middle of the month changes to get things interesting in a dynamical fall way.

The HP over the Gulf of Alaska retrogrades west and breaks down thus giving a PNA spike in the west and a trough in the east. Loops to happen mid month if models aren't rushing this.

SE Ridge is not backing down. Another week of mild temperatures. Though by the end of the week looks like there will be an onshore flow keeping temps in the 60's, but it will still be humid. By Saturday, could get to 80 again.

This is nuts I know one place that's loving it. The electric companies cuz so many are still using ac. I for one am not and I read on another forum that warmth could last into nov. And from there not completely sure. I'm not a global warming person but what do you call this? It's not the first year.

Meteorologists must have seen something. Before September got under way they were calling for a warm fall. I like stopped using my A.C but I had to use it yesterday to draw out some of the humidity.

For those that would like to expand on this please use this as a springboard, but we have an interesting and fantastic educational situation unfolding with regard to our general pattern over the next couple of weeks; one that I've been waiting for to show its face. I'm referencing the discussion of what makes a particular atmospheric "player" a pattern driver versus a pattern enhancer. As Scott as has pointed out several days ago, and reiterating my previous points in addition to his, the SOI has been in a very persistent basestate for some time now, which promotes time-mean ridging in eastern North America, much like we are seeing in the modeling over the next two weeks. However, the MJO is unanimously progged to enter strongly into phases 4 and 5. Phase promotes widespread cool across the CONUS, while 5 promotes more significant cold east of the Mississippi in the month of October. This is in complete contrast to the recent stretch of ++SOI values, which begs the question: Which way will our pattern go? Will it follow the ridging induced by the SOI, or, the troughing evidenced by the strong MJO pulse? The answer is not necessarily mutually exclusive; rather, an "if-then" and "but". If you look at the trends in the modeling, you can clearly see how the ~Day 6-8 troughing is trending increasingly stronger as it comes into the East, supporting the simultaneous traversal of the poten MJO pulse into Phase 5. However, also note that this trough is both transient and surrounded by a "sea of warmth" in the time-mean, supported by the ++SOI. When looking at the mean temperatures over the next two weeks, you can see that even with this trough trending stronger thanks to the MJO, the temperature anomalies remain strongly positive, owing to the ++SOI. My point? This shows that the much larger SOI, which encompasses the entirety of the tropical Pacific, is a much larger influence on our synoptic pattern (a driver), than the MJO, which only incorporates/occupies *one section* of the tropical Pacific at any given time (a pattern enhancer).

Great post. I agree with everything. There will be times over the next 2 weeks (not including this one) where we'll see fall-like and possibly below normal temps. But it will be very transient. There is a sign from the GEFS we could get into a stretch of fall weather around Halloween. But that is very far down the road and could change.

And from there not completely sure. I'm not a global warming person but what do you call this? It's not the first year.

Obviously In recent years warmer than normal relative to "Avg", meaning the 1981-2010 averages temp anomalies have plagued us.  However; what we are experiencing right now is not all that unusual given the current status of the Trop Pac.  A persistent SOI and La Nina like base state, although we are not currently officially in a La Nina and may not truly get there, has been a primary driver to our weather pattern as of late, as Ray stated above, with very little esle going on on a large scale to alter said pattern. Tropics are quite strat doesnt come into play for another 1-1.5months etc.  BTW great post Ray.  Also like Ray mentioned a very strong pulse in the MJO region from 4 where we are now (warm in the east) into 5 and maybe 6 is unanimously forecasted right now. I personally believe the base state of the emerging weak La Nina will dominate the overall pattern, but the MJO pulse will give us our shots of transient below normal weather in the 7-14d.  Also the possible recurving typhoon in the 6-10d, if comes to fruition, will likely become a fly in the ointment, or short term pattern enhancer/modifier as well.  So with that said the persistent ridging the Eastern half the country has been experiencing, and that is forecasted to continue to be where the pattern settles back into after our transients cool shots, and will likely cont until we get later in the season when wavelengths shorten, and other pattern enhancers/drivers come into play.  

FWIW.  JB on the Bell posted this yesterday.  Here are the temp anomalies through the Month of Oct thus far as well as the temp anomalies for the same time frame through Oct in 2013.  Pretty much identical.  





Oct 2013 we were headed into a similar ENSO period as we are forecasted to this season as well.  IE: A neg neutral ENSO that remained weakly negative throughout the season as seen on the ONI.  So a negatively leaning neutral ENSO period which might happen this year as well.  Just some food for thought.

Yes mugs and looks to have staying power. Check out the EPO and where it's headed very negative with the recurving typhoon influence.  November looks to start cold. pattern change on the way peeps

Basically days 5 through 7 below normal eight through 10 slightly above normal and day 10+ looks to be significantly below normal Temps with a negative EPO and the ridge bridge over top. Check out today's 6z GEFS. That's a nice look wish that was early December instead of early November
