Joestradamus Long Range Changes
There are a lot of things happening in the atmosphere that will be impacting the longer range weather pattern across North America in the second half of November and going forward into December. Two of the more important indices that we monitor for the long range are turning favorable for a colder pattern. The North Atlantic Oscillation is forecast to go increasingly negative beginning in about a week’s time. The increasing negative values suggest blocking developing in the North Atlantic which will displace cold air southward into the Untied States

Also the East Pacific Oscillation goes negative in a few days which also favors a colder overall pattern. Now the specifics remain to be seen and this does not mean there can’t be warm days ahead. However these strengthening indices do point to a colder pattern over North America as the month winds down and we head into December. Also pointing in the direction of colder is the Arctic Oscillation. There has been warming going on in the polar regions for weeks as temperatures remain well above normal there. The negative Arctic Oscillation points to a displacement of cold air southward.

Now in terms of the specifics there is lots of uncertainty. The process of pattern change is often a grinding grueling process that doesn’t occur at some magic moment. The first system that might set the ball in motion is the system that moves to the East Coast next weekend. The upper air has a picture of a colder flow with a ridge of high pressure in the west and a strong ridge in the Atlantic building between Labrador and Greenland.
Beyond this time frame, we will have to watch the developments across the polar regions and where this ultimately winds up. The drought pattern has a stranglehold on the Eastern United States and we need to see weather systems begin to chip away at all this. Over days 10-13 on the long range you can see how the temperature profile changes with regards to the extent of above normal temperatures and and increase in areas of below normal temperatures in the eastern part of Canada as well as the west.
Model trends on this have been fairly consistent for days now and we would expect the evolutionary process to continue. I would expect to see snow cover to finally appear in the northern areas first and then gradually spread southward. I would also expect models to occasionally start showing fantasy threats in the long range. We will of course have to wait for all this to into some short range time frame before we give it any sort of validity.
