Probably stretching my luck but...

BSR compared to 01/04 Storm looks semi-similar... is that hint of a phase I see?

We are near the bull's eye--now I will just have to weather all of the cutterish and the suppressed output.

There is never suppression when a Great Lakes Cutter comes.

i moved my thread date up a day to accommodate yours. Usually not great practice to start a thread on the day when another one is ending especially when In thread it says dates will be adjusted as needed. We don't usually roll with multiple 8-15days out threats

so your thread can cover the soi drop and the consistently modeled Eastern Asia rule for this period

I'll leave mine to see if the bsr has legs on the 20th


Here is a little gift for you regarding a 3 day 20pt drop of soi during a Nina



And another crossposting from my thread



Very stable storm over Japan coinciding with 23-25 here in the US

Good luck with your thread keep it full of info. Just try not to stretch past an already long range thread and start it the day that one ends and don't get in the me first habit of thread openings. .

If you like a period like it and open it. If you don't then leave it be. Clapper knows that one smile.gif

Yeah, I originally had it as 24-27 but the SOI drop started a bit earlier so I (unfortunately) pushed it back. Debated earlier today to reverse it to accomodate your thread but thought that others might get confused with the dates constantly changing. Sorry 'bout that.

Not a problem

I am very happy to see a newer poster dive right in. Shoot me a pm im pretty responsive


I'll be honest I was playing the middle of all the action and was gonna tweak when it became clearer. There is an art to it. One you seem eager to learn. So by all means good luck with the thread some promising signals

Don't forget to check on some teleconnections when you can. And keep your subscript updated to thread title title to standards

Cheers

Negative PNA and flat tellies across the board.

If anyone has the weatherbell or weathermodels.com tellies that would be great because then we could apply my rule.

I thought we were looking at the storm after the cutter based on these dates. Lots of energy to be had and it eventually spawns a storm off the east coast.
