Last year it was snowing the day before Thanksgiving and this year it was a nice mid 60s day. Tomorrow should also be above average.

According to Ricky, a meteorologist in Fairbanks, this November happens to be the coldest in Alaska history since records keeping began in 1909. So far this La Nina influenced weather is probably the strongest one we are seeing in decades. I was not aware, until told by someone, that there was also a La Nina occurrence last year, so how was it compared to this year? anyone knows?

First significant snow to fall today to the mountains of Scotland and northern England, low level snowfall expected in Scotland too. Later this week the snow line will fall to around 400 meters here in northern England, opening the possibility of low-level snowfall here too. Either way, I might see some snow in the nearby Pennine hills.

The GFS is predicting a sizable pattern shift for the eastern US after next week with a more persistent ridge building in the eastern Pacific and West that correlates nicely with the PNA that has flipped sign to positive territory. December has a bit more promise for cold and snow in the Great Lakes and New England than last week, but the jury is still out.

This has to be the best Fall I've ever experienced.

All good things must come to an end though, I cringe at the changing models.

I really hope so. Though I wouldn't say this fall has been disappointingly warm. It's still been pleasantly cool with a handful of cold days and nights.

The models are still having trouble with the cutoff low and then PNA. The Euro isn't as cold as the GFS.

November has been unbelievably warm. Not that I'm complaining or anything, but I would much rather that we can save some of the warmth for spring I got a feeling that, whenever we got warm autumn, early spring would be cold

Here in the UK, a warm spring usually means a crappy (cold) summer, and these past few years, that's exactly what has happened.

That is true and the southeast ridge always seems to want to rebuild quickly.
The next few days of model runs will be a good indication of where the overall pattern is headed...
