The pattern is anything but stable going into the next several weeks from now through Christmas. It always fascinates me how some SCREAM winter is over when the thermometer gets above 55 and in the rare cases hits above 70 such was the case December 3rd!
The reason behind the sudden warm up was thanks in part to the Pacific ocean and a pattern known as the Eastern Pacific Ocillation "EPO". Essentially it's the pattern that turns the west coast stormy and cold and that was certainly the case over the weekend. If you follow my facebook page you have seen me say how the pacific is very unstable and that pattern would be short-lived. Well, that looks to be the case.
