The drizzly conditions are finally lifting with a bit of sun peaking through the overcast here.

It took all day, but the clouds are finally breaking here and there allowing much needed light to filter in.  Feels a lot better seeing some patches of blue sky!

While La Niņa in general keeps the coldest air in the Midwest, Weak to moderate ones with a negative Nao can produce some incredibly snowy and cold periods. Hate to say it but no doubt 84-85 will surface as an analog. It had some major warmth early before the bottom dropped out in January. 2010-11 also had similar conditions. I would be willing to bet we see wild swings in weather this winter with cold air available for the dive south at times.

I know why you hate to say it haha. Every year it seems 84-85 is brought up at some point. But reasonably because it was a good year for snow (so I hear anyways as i wasn't around yet).

Just a brief look at similar analogs that have a weak to moderate La Niņa and neutral to slightly negative PDO- there are lots of snow winners there and a few duds. More later-

Although hint- 1967-68 is a good example

84-85' is a good enough reason to have been born before then and endure being older today.  Glad I was around to enjoy that epic winter.

This pattern change is great news for the Northwest and Montana as they finally get wetter and cooler conditions which they desperately need. In matter of fact, parts of Montana are facing a winter storm.

I was one year behind ya.   Best year of school in my life, because we missed over a month and were granted "emergency snow days" and didn't have to make them up!   Ah--good times!
