There’s always a fascination with long range outlooks and so we thought we would issue ours. An outlook means just that, it’s not a forecast, but more than an art form than a science. That being said, here we go.

We see on the jet stream where in the whole, tries to stay to the north keeping the coolest pool of arctic air for December and January. For February and March, the jet will move into a favorable pattern where the jet takes a dip in the east with cold air in place. Thus, creating favorable storm tracks

Once again, probability cannot be examined because again, it is an outlook, not a forecast
