Before I wrapped up tonight I had to share with you some long range data. I'll credit Dave Toleris for pointing this out in This Week's Weather. He presents a wide array of very good links.
Check out what they are showing the last week of November to that first week in December. See image 2 below. The red and grey colors indicate powerful ridging aloft. Think of high pressure. Now, take a look at the green colors. That represents troughs aloft and low pressure at the surface. If you take a look at the second image, you can see that upper air look is hinting potential coastal storm, perhaps another Nor'easter for the East Coast. Now, again, not a forecast here, but the type of pattern we are going to see.
Right now, the AO and NAO are heading toward negative, especially in the ensembles. Typically, there is a lag time for this to kick in, but just after Thanksgiving is the time that the pattern would start to change and then become more favorable. Time will tell.
