In my hoopla post on December 1st, I discussed how the #BSR saw the pattern change to cold that we are, and will, experience in the coming days. Let's focus on the last section of that post.
Sad part is I was portrayed by a twitter account out east that I was denying the pattern change was even going to take place and “was wasting your time”.Umm…yeah…Looks like my research and data was denying that. He was just upset that I noticed he was calling for a ridge in the EPO/AO region when in reality, it was the WPO region. Some education of the loading differences for EPO/WPO…
Note the ridge with the highest anomalies just South of the Aleutian Island chain and moving into the Eastern Bering Sea.
Our current lag time is running at 17 days.
