What’s The Difference Between Anticipation And Prediction?

Late January may bring a deep chill to much of the country as the Arctic Oscillation dips far enough into negative territory to unleash pure Arctic air. We had the air cold enough for snow in all areas above the surface, but surface temperatures were always the issue. I tried my best over the last few days to drive that point home especially I-95 south knowing that the margin would be paper thin between rain and accumulating snow. As the image shows, the North US experiences a higher chance of an extreme warmth winter, while the South sees their risk for an extreme cold winter rise. • During El Nino winters, the North US is typically warmer than normal, while the South is cooler than normal. If we look at the image above, we can get a good idea of what temperature anomalies may be like for the upcoming winter due to the El Nino.

Consequently, the application will make anyone to get prepared before the climate changes or even turns out to be the horrible climate condition. Did residence in a free state make Scott free? January 14-18: A couple shots of low pressure systems into the Southwest could make for a good snow somewhere in the Plains or Midwest. The lack of snow. • During El Nino winters, the East Coast, Plains and Rockies are typically wetter than normal, while the North Plains and Ohio Valley are drier than normal. This image shows you the probability of extreme warm or cold winters during El Nino years. The West US, currently suffering through one of the worst (if not the worst) droughts on record, typically experiences a wetter than normal winter during El Nino winters. The Plains and East Coast then tend to see wetter than normal winters.

Thus, we can anticipate that the North might see a warmer than normal winter this year and in to 2015. However, that will be looked at again later this year. Long before there was Doppler radar and weather apps for smart phones, people looked to weathervanes for predicting changes in the weather. Many people think carrying a map with themselves will look odd or something. Ensemble guidance is still in disagreement, but does find a conclusion that there will be a strong storm in the Bering Sea for this timeframe. Moving ahead to the ensembles, first and foremost the ECMWF Ensembles, we find the average of all 52 members – yes, that’s fifty-two individual ensemble members – to place this storm at a strength of 938 millibars. This storm was brutal from a forecasting standpoint. We can see the theme of a low 920s millibar storm hitting the Bering Sea, so let’s keep pushing ahead.

The animation above shows temperature anomalies at the 10 millibar level, in the far upper reaches of the stratosphere, over the past month or so. In this image, valid for November 8th over the West and North Pacific basins, we see an incredibly strong extratropical storm circulating over the far western Aleutian Islands, with a minimum SLP value of 923 millibars. Major operational model guidance is down to a consensus that the storm will likely land somewhere around 920 millibars in strength. With the storm only 96 hours away from entering the Bering Sea, and ensemble guidance continuing to strengthen with time, confidence only rises in this possibility of a near-record-breaking extratropical cyclone to strike the Bering Sea. Confidence is growing in the threat of a near-record-breaking extratropical storm system impacting the Bering Sea. The method, referred to as the Bering Sea Rule, takes the occurrence of high and low pressure events in the Bering Sea, and expects a similar weather phenomenon to occur in the US about 17-21 days later. Arizona solar panels do well because of the many days of sunshine throughout the year. Hopefully to some extent I kept some of you ahead of the storm though my analysis this past 5 days.
