The Mid South and Arkansas in particular should get some good relief over the next 15 days


Also all longer range modeling is tanking the AO, NAO, and EPO in about 2 weeks. We may be about to see an abrupt change to winter. This is the EPS temp anomaly for day 15



Bring it.  Before we know it, it will be 90 again.  Winter, like 100% cotton washed in hot water, seems to be shrinking.

Long range outlooks continue to increase the amount of impressive blocking in the Polar regions by the middle/end of next week, and the AO is tanking around the same time.  Big flip coming if it holds.

Well looking good fellow peeps!  Winter appears to be on the way!
To me it has been a great fall so far!  So winter appears to be right about on schedule!

From the tail end of MEG's  AFD this afternoon.

A pattern change looks
increasingly likely by the middle to end of next week with colder
temperatures and increasingly wet conditions expected.

Colder then average and wet surely something can happen? I mean it will be December. I like the wet trend for sure though. I was getting worried we would be dry all winter and probably miss out on any chance of snow because of that.

Both will be welcomed.   Latest GFS run (06Z) does show cold shots increasing in number and intensity toward the end of it's run.  Also interesting to see a large pool of even colder air growing in central and eastern Canada.

Channel 4 (WSMV Nashville) this morning mentioned the Arctic blast coming next week.

EPS goes cold for much of the country after the first week of December and stays that way through much of January.

After the last two torchy Decembers, it will be a welcome change to have cold, and even a few possible snow chances, during the Christmas season.  Maybe we can get a decent snow when the sun is at it's lowest in the sky.  The Great Snow Eater will be at it's weakest.   >:D

things also look dry as bone also... another thing i dont like is  there really isnt hardly much if any snowcover to our north in our country that is... sure way up cross border... see it it modifies slowly.... models may be over doing some things... to be hones key here is dry... getting worried

Iím not too worried about snow cover- thatís something that can change in a week. Iím fact hereís the EPS 15 and 46 day mean.





I would love to see one of those patterns that lays down cold well before moisture returns. Itís been awhile vs abrupt changes- which I expect to see some of as well.

How do you get access to this? I guess you have to pay?

Man, that's an impressive snowpack building just to our north--and it's only early December.

Yes, that's additional snow.  But there is already a decent cover of white over the border in Canada.  Models have been right on the money when it comes to the snow already there.  No reason to think they are suddenly going to be wrong.
