Actually huge pattern change coming
Message from Tom in Philadelphia
The AO is headed as strongly negative as it has been positive. The vortex is under attack and will likely come down on some mid latitudes. If it comes down on us expect really bad cold. Huge ridge in west building with trough in east. Add to that the warm SST temps are still up there in the GOA. the blob is still kicking.
Bottom line is that CFSv2 has now shifted to colder Jan. Winter will indeed be backloaded with the chance for serious cold in Jan and Feb. Who cares if Dec ends up so warm if it is all ruined in Jan and Feb. As yogi Berra said, "it's deja vu all over again".
