And there also seems to be a lot of cold air building up over Alaska, with temps predicted to go as low as -40F in places like Fort Yukon and Arctic Village over the next few days.

Temperatures look to remain mild overall in most of the East according to the latest GFS. Still no sustained cold that lasts more than a couple of days.

That's what I'm seeing as well.

Did you see this:

AccuWeather.com - Brett Anderson | Updated Weekly Computer Model Outlook (http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/anderson/story/57967/updated-weekly-computer-model-outlook.asp - broken link)

Looks to stay mild in much of the northern USA until mid/late December.

Pretty much the same here.. at least next week we in the UK are set to get battered by wind and rain which is interesting.. plus November is very dry so far despite the dullness.

Seasonal forecast published at the beginning of September (that was more than two months ago) by Environment Canada:

October - November - December
http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/data/...34fe1tm2_s.gif

December - January - February
http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/data/...mp_06_s_m2.gif

March - April - May
http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/data/...mp_09_s_m2.gif

They seem to know what they're doing? Most of their prediction has been pretty accurate this time, especially for Southern Ontario (and they even predicted that the West would be colder than average on November and December).

Yea...that's the only thing that many of the weather forecasters seemed to get right - the trough in the West and the cooler temps there. CA has just had one of their coldest summers in 50 years I think.

So let me get this straight...when accuweather predicts colder than normal weather they are "hyping it up" because they want more viewers...but when they predict milder than normal weather you actually use them as a source?

We all do that Alex, it's called being human!

The only good thing about this mild crap is the lovely fog.. oh and its 41F at the usual peak temperature time..

When did AccuWeather ever not hype anything up

As far as the pattern...zero chance of any cool weather in the Gulf States or Florida for the next 2 to 5 weeks it looks like

Typical La Nina blowtorch, but the -PNA and +NAO and AO make it even worse for those that like cold and snow in the East. GFS only shows some cold after two weeks and it doesn't look promising. This looks like the 99-00 La Nina preliminary winter pattern with a zonal and split flow pattern with all cold staying well to the northwest and Canada. In short, awful.
