Winter '19 / '20 - Statistical Winter Outlook: Solar cycle and ENSO

Severe Weather Europe's (SWE) analysis of the solar cycle and ENSO analogs ...

"After removing all the cold phases and strong warm phases of ENSO, we get a very interesting and more defined picture. We see a high pressure area focused over Greenland and the Arctic, typical for negative NAO & AO.

"Lower pressure is displaced a bit further south, along with polar fronts and colder air. This type of pattern usually brings colder and snowy weather to Europe and USA."

SWE/s solar cycle / ENSO analysis in general agreement with our current QBO ... AO ... and Eurasia snow cover analogs.
