FWIW, the latest CFS looks pretty darn cold in the NW during the trimonthly period of J/F/M. Pretty classic "arctic outbreak" signal being shown. Timing seems to line up well with many peoples thoughts on the upcoming winter here.

Lol. Frankly, it'd be nice to see something other than a supermassive black hole over the Hudson Bay again. It's been a semi-permanent figure since 2013.
This multiyear +NAO regime is going to die a slow, painful death over the 12-18 months, but I'm hopeful that we'll make some progress this winter. Could have been a faster process had we avoided losing buckets of O^3/N^2O to recent geomagnetic storms (not to mention that double +QBO last year).
