So, not that I am looking to pee in your Wheaties here, but the JAMSTEC hasn't done so well in recent years, with respect to the July forecast...

It does have a decent track record though, especially in respect to other climate models, so maybe it's just been struggling post-Super El Nino? Who knows, maybe this year will be the year that it gets back on track!

So in my town in CT, we are seeing A LOT of acorns falling already. Isn't a lot of acorns a sign of a bad winter coming?

Haha. what?? blink.gif Oak leaves just got full few weeks ago. Acorns take 4+ months to mature and a month to drop...No way at all acorns have grown and or fell yet. I suspect the tree is sick or maybe its another type of nut?

Can you post some pictures? Not that I don't believe you, just want to check how large the acorns are.

I posted more so out of amusement & love...lol.

What's interesting is that CanSips, NNME, CFS, JAMSTEC seem to all agree on a lot of Alaska & west coast blocking & troughiness east. They disagree on exact anomalies. I pretty much ignore anomalies. I also would not make too big of a deal on the blocking agreement idea at this point....but certainly have noted.

So are some others...then nearly universal wintry east look for JAN/FEB. Heck...CanSips has below normal anomalies for U.S. which I was beginning to wonder if CanSips ever would again.

CANSIPs is a joke for seasonal forecasting.

Yeah, JAMSTEC is about as good as it gets for winter lovers. The down side of that is just that; it can't get any better... which isn't something you would want this far out.

Exactly!! With ENSO evolution still unknown anything being modeled this far out doesn't mean much at all.

Any of the cold models are based on the assumption of a modoki/hybrid El Nino. But even a modoki/hybrid El Nino is no guarantee for cold in the east. Things can go wrong for sure.
