    First season in 6 that I won't be heading to North America. Always interested in seeing the change of seasons and checking the snow reports.
    I am heading to Austria/Italy and they got there first snowfall of the new season about a day ago. 30 to 40cm in places. It will all melt quickly of course but hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

    Currently a weak MJO contributing to weak, stagnant tropical circulation.

    Interesting illustration of Hurricane Florence here.
    This has it landing somewhere between @Donzah and myself.
    Given some (un) favourable SST's I have believed for many years this is possible.

    thanks for that. I see the elevated timber walkway is at Johnston Canyon near Banff. Just added that to my list of things to do while we are there

    Another update to my ongoing build up to the seasonal outlook for North America. Just looking at the data together, I don't want to make any definitive forecasts, but it looks like a good start for the West Coast, and perhaps a more neutral or East Coast pattern in the later stages of winter.

    To add to that, Banff is getting ready for winter on top of the fall a few days ago, with a nice foot or so.

    A-Basin, CO has commenced it’s earliest snowmaking in 10 years overnight.
    They’re tentatively looking to open in 4 weeks, as usual.

    Latest GFS Arctic 10mb view progs a rapid strengthening of the Polar Vortex over Northern Canada & Alaska.
    IMO October is gearing up rather quick for North America.
