It is known that there is a correlation between October Siberian snow pack anomalies and North American winter snowfall anomalies. Last year, we observed below normal snowfall anomalies in October over Siberia with a sudden burst in November. However, because October was below normal, the US ended up with a very warm and snowless winter.
This winter, there is hope. I hold confidence that Siberia is giving us some good information here as far as storytelling the upcoming winter. I will culminate this development with my other thoughts on the winter in early November.
