Smells like Winter in Europe. Below is the Boreal Arctic Vorex (large scale, upper level stratospheric low bound in the arctic region for winter). In laymans terms; it's full blown winter for Europe/Siberia for now with an upper level High pressure (circa Alaska/Bering Sea) limiting substantial winter systems through Western/Central USA/Canada. IMO should see a turn for the better into the new year. GFS (for next week) EC in agreeance.
