Seriously the stupidity on here is out of control. Judging winter on the 00z ensemble. Give me a break. Of course our winter will suck. It has for the past 30 years!

 

Some post camping trip drinks this evening? ;)

Last night was a pretty inspiring prelude to winter. Ripping winds and snow by morning at 6500'! The wind was so strong there was almost no warmth to gain from the campfire!

Yeah definitely a weenie meltdown going on. Which I guess is understandable after the last couple of years. But your analysis is unusually level headed and accurate. ;)

Hey, did you go to Oktoberfest this year? We went walking around the Mount Angel Abbey our second evening down there, before the festivities. It was very serene and pretty. I was thinking about the fact that you used to work there. What an interesting place that must have been.

It was great working there. I loved the early mornings on clear days with views of Hood, Adams, St. Helens, and sometimes Rainier. It was certainly interesting and almost like traveling back in time. 

 

I hit up O-fest for about an hour on Saturday night this year. Just was busy with other things and did not give it its full appreciation this year.

All Octobers are created equal. Except for the bad ones that are cool and rainy and yucky and not conducive to outdoor tee ball or whatever.

I feel like the "immenent" pattern change to a semi-permanent offshore low is being overstated. Weren't some people here talking about going into a month and a half+ period of warmth just three weeks ago with some degree of confidence? Things change.

Has anyone actually forecasted a "semi-permanent offshore low"? Just curious.

That said, I definitely regret my posts making intraseasonal comparisons to Niño years, and will refrain from doing so in the future. I didn't realize it'd be taken out of context and start a war.

There's no war. You can post whatever kind of analysis you want, obviously. When you are beating the Nino analog drum so hard it is probably a good idea to provide a bit more context, though. Otherwise it just makes things seem confusing and contradictory.

I understand. Probably best if I simply lay off the ramblings on intraseasonal stuff for awhile. Hasn't done me any favors and probably belongs in another forum anyway.

Yes...much better in the 5 to 7 day period than the GFS.  The operational GFS wasn't all that bad, but the ensemble sucked balls.

Many of the -ENSO/+QBO analogs delivered in February, as well. I highly doubt this is a one-and-done winter, given what will probably be a highly variable/transient pattern progression.

If there's one thing I'm confident of in regards to this winter, it's a highly variable, unstable pattern progression. This background state is just too weak to constrain things much, IMO.

Well don't deny us your insight. But you shouldn't be surprised if a post comprised of nino-esque analog composite years from the 00Z GFS being compared to a composite map of super ninos with nothing more than a "WOW, all I have to say is LOL." as explanation/commentary gets a mixed reception.

Here's a comparison between -ENSO Octobers preceding blocky winters, and -ENSO Octobers preceding zonal winters, all within the satellite era. Note the difference in the EPO.

Versus those that preceded zonal winters. Not a huge difference, except over Eurasia/NE Siberia:

I am going to be honest. This is my most insightful commentary in months, maybe years. Take heed. 

 

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I hope you will provide some insight for me.

Weakening deformation band from Portland to Vancouver Island showing up to the west of Seattle.    Looks like it just falls apart in place today.

35 with light rain. Some tiny wet flurries mixed in.

 

The high today may not even reach 50. Chance of t'storms throughout the entire CWA this afternoon but not so sure about the east sides. October t'storms a very rare here.

I'll drink (with you) to that!

 

The last two Octobers here were nightmares. I think the only people here who liked them were Matt and Tim.

 

Personally I thought October 2014 was interesting. And any October that can have both an indian summer and a good windstorm deserves a medal. Oct 2015 wasn't a big deal though, last one and the one before don't belong in the same sentence. Oct 2014 actually ended up as one of the rainiest Octobers as well as being warm, and Oct 2015 wasn't all that rainy, at least in this neck of the woods. Diversity makes good Octobers, it should have pleased just about everyone regardless of taste.

I'm not worried

 

We'll see where the numbers end up and go from there.

Here's a comparison between -ENSO Octobers preceding blocky winters, and -ENSO Octobers preceding zonal winters, all within the satellite era. Note the difference in the EPO.

I'm still not sure about excluding pre 1975 data from this.  The years you are using are almost all in the period since our January woes began.  Obviously it's going to take something different to lead to a good January here.

A cold rain this morning. 49 degrees and coming down moderately.

Yesterday never touched 60 here, and winds were breezy from the south all afternoon.

My son this morning with his new car that he bought yesterday.    A 2005 Toyota 4 Runner with AWD.    His main goal was having something he could take skiing and to be able to get up our hill in snow... and something that could tow our boat so he can be on the lake with his friends without any help from mom and dad.    He has a job and will be making all the payments.    It comes fast Matt... get ready!
