To think we have almost six months of this s***e ahead of us before northern blocking sets in next April is totally depressing.

Elmer, you don't think 10 Oct is a bit early to be depressed about the coming winter even by your standards?

No real northern blocking during a winter month since December 2010 tells me all I need to know. I see no reason why Svalbard for example won't be up to 6-8 degrees above normal AGAIN this winter.
Even mild winters half a century ago could deliver a few snowy days from a potent northerly, northerlies now only last about a day and aren't even cold. I've given up!

Arctic continues to be excessively warm this Autumn. Possibly due to the incredibly high SSTs over virtually all of the N. Pacific. helping to ensure an ample supply warm air flowing into the region.

NOAA are predicting the US will have higher than average temperatures for December.

Would this not be a good thing for us? Less chances of cold air going into the Atlantic firing up the jet stream and less chance of get hit with storm after storm?

In theory, yes. But the Atlantic has other ways of spoiling the party for us. Just because N America may be unusually mild in winter does not guarantee prolonged cold for us unfortunately

Could be warm in the eastern States but cold in Canada which would help fire up the Atlantic jet. Impossible to say really.

For what it's worth, it has been generally on the warm side over not just in the States, but pretty much the entirety of N. America over the last 30 days, and it has been pretty damp over on this side of the pond with around average or slightly above temps.

Some parts of the US have been having quite a winter since September. Please give us your wintry conditions for the winter since you've had your fair share of winter weather!

So what is the general consensus for this winter? Are we looking at another mild and wet set up or something more akin to Narnia!

It's still too early to answer that and last winter taught us not to get excited! Personally, I feel it's going to be another 2013-14 but less extreme.

it's far too early to say but most of the models are pointing towards a mild or very mild winter. It is easy to believe this because this is what we end up with most winters.
