MONDAY NIGHT at 6:30 PM:  The Wonders of Winter special will be broadcast on 41 Action News with our Winter Forecast!

This video just scratches the surface on the developing pattern. We go through the first LRC cycle which is most likely in the 45 to 51 day range.  Last night a snowstorm showed up on the 06z run. Is it fantasy of reality?

The AO and NAO are forecast to stay neutral to negative. This will be discussed in our winter forecast that will be posted here Monday night.  This is what we want to see if you are interested in having some winter excitement and you are a weather enthusiast.

LRC Cycle 1 2017-2018 10-23This map on the left shows the pattern on October 23, and the one on the right shows the pattern on November 2nd. This part of the weather pattern brought a three week to four week stretch of colder than average temperatures. So, guess what? The chance of December being colder than average is very high. We are forecasting a cold December. Now, will it lead to above average snowfall next month? What about this winter? We will learn a lot more in the next few weeks.

LRC Cycle 1 2017-2018 11-2This has been staring us in the face for weeks now. As usual, it is easy to make too many conclusions too early. I have been trying to help you be patient.  I am somewhat excited about the winter that is about to begin.

Have a great day, and please join in the conversation on Weather2020.com tomorrow night into Tuesday as we discuss the winter forecast truth from the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.
