We are back to our 'minimum ocean energy' weather. Cold blobs coming down and meeting Gulf of Mexico heat. This gives us lots of rain and early snow this year.
As the last cyclones leave the Atlantic belt, Europe will have cold blobs again. The long-range forecasts are leaning to cold weather.
The British tabloids are aligning with the Almanac, As the Men in Black would say, they know what they're doing!
The regular forecasts are bouncing back between cold and warm. They are now changing their definitions of 'El Nino Weather'. I'm not saying anything about that, we'll just wait for things to fall out. However, I am seeing a lot of 'Magic Jet Stream' things as 'explanations'. It looks they'll just forget about the EN mirage, and they'll go back to Dancing Vacuum Fairies as explanations for the cold.
So, we'll see a horrendously cold winter, and lots of hand-waving about various magical reasons. In other words, the usual...
ps. and this is a 'cold driven' cyclone in the North Atlantic
I saw these all the time last winter in the Pacific. Just like this one, they were driven by two Arctic spills. You can have many types of cyclones, the most common being 'hot driven' where there is very hot water and air going into the average air. But this is extreme cold being driven into the average. Neat.
pps. everybody jumping on the 'cold winter' bandwagon. A bit late, but all are welcome!
