La Nina building in, lackluster Winter in the Mid-Mississippi River Valley and snow in the Carolinas, shifting PDO to neutral to negative and positive AO/NAO trends so far herald a 2012 like Summer ahead especially for the heartland into the southern plains? Also will the tropics play a bigger role this Summer then last?

Summer 2015 looks like it could go any way. It could be similar to 2014, but it also could go the other way and transform into a 2012 repeat. Only a few small but important features will be critical to how it turns out.
CFSv2 is leaning towards a hot and dry Summer for the Great Lakes and Midwest, while the south is wet and seasonable, if not slightly below average. Looks like California might also get some more gradual, but slow drought relief as the drought shifts to the mid and upper Mississippi River Valleys into the Great Lakes.
Tropical Activity is likely to be higher next year with the Nino in play, but still not expecting a block buster season. Looks like the Gulf and Caribbean might be colder then normal to start, while the east coast and eastern Atlantic is above normal which might brew some storms off the east coast early that head out to sea. Thinking the second half of the season will be more active with the potential for some landfalling systems, especially along the Gulf Coast, mainly Florida and possibly Louisiana. With a moderate risk of a storm impacting New England and the Carolina coast.
Anyone else have early thoughts of the coming Summer? Will it be a flamethrower Summer, or something more gentle and enjoyable? Discuss and post your outlooks here! Have fun and play nice!

With winter rapidly coming to a close and signs of a warming pattern emerging long range, its time to start laying some ideas about the upcoming Summer for the US and the Northern Hemisphere at large. Given last Summer's extreme heat and drought, and drought remaining an issue into the Winter of 2012-2013, my feeling is given the severity of the drought last year and looking a years with similar conditions it would appear that these 'extreme' drought years come in triplets, which would argue for yet another extremely hot and dry Summer and year in general. What are some other people's ideas on this, will the dust bowl like drought continue, or will relief arrive? Discuss and place your forecast and ideas here...

Models have been teasing us with a potential moderate winter weather event in time for the New Year's Eve Ball drop. Will Mother Nature finally give those that missed out on the Christmas storm some love, or is it going to be the same o same o. Lets strap ourselves in for what is sure to be a wild model ride.
