For now, this will not include any graphics, since I am not sure how to get any maps saved on my Android.
However, this forecast will be broken down region by region, and will be detailed, so here goes…
Temperatures: this region will be under general influence of both a negative PNA for periods of time, which causes a trough in the polar jet over the PNW, and a massive ridge for the eastern half of the nation, though it wil be modified by an occasional weak negative NAO, it will be tough to break in the begining, also a Southeast ridge will be dominant in the begining, though there will be cold spells, complete with frost, freeze events in the area… overvall, you will experience wild temperature swings, it will get cold, but the cold may not be as long lived as the last few years, as an Aleutian low has a little more influence than a blocking high in Greenland. Later in the winter, the pattern will modify and allow more cold air to reach coastal areas, though it will not be as cold as years’ past, so not so many prolonged severe cold spells, and extreme cold will have a hard time making to to the lowlands until late winter.
Precipitation: this region will experience near to slightly above normal precip in the north, near normal south, this will be due to more rain and slop (mix) events than snow along the coast, even though storms will be less frequent, and opportunities for big storms outside of Nor’ easters will be below normal due to storms being directed through the Midwest more frequently and missing the east coast, due to more rain than snow, precipitation should still end out near normal for most areas.
Snowfall , however in the end, will end up being around average, even along the coast, since late winter may bring some good winter storms to the region.
Upstate NY, NH, VT, ME will end up above average for snowfall, since more storms will be riding up the west side of the Appalachians.
Next post will be the Mid-Atlantic region…
