Forecast Models Projecting El Nino for Mid-to-late 2023 with Increasing strength

The NCEP FCS V2 Nino34 SSTA forecast continues an aggressive trend that indicates ending of La Nina early in 2023 followed by a shift into El Nino middle of 2023. ECM is indicating a much stronger El Nino developing middle of 2023. Climate Impact Company will issue a new ENSO forecast for 2023 late this week!

Cold Stratosphere = Warmer U.S. Forecast

Medium-range forecasts are trending warmer across North America and especially the U.S. The catalyst to this warmer trend is a cold stratosphere over the polar region stretching south across Canada as indicated by the GFS in 5 days. As a review, the cooling and constricting stratosphere is compensated for by the warming troposphere below. Consequently, the upper-level pattern in the troposphere creating our weather is less able to produce cold air and arctic air generation is cutoff. Arctic air already present will retreat to deep snow cover.

Explaining The Uncertainties Of The Titanic Negative North Atlantic Oscillation Ahead

Evolution of a titanic negative North Atlantic oscillation (-NAO) pattern is indicated during the medium-range. The effect of -NAO is to produce anomalous upper-level high-pressure blocking over Greenland. The high-pressure block is certainly evident in the “most likely” upper air forecast for the northern hemisphere by the mega-cluster ensemble.
