    Nothing is reliable as a white Christmas unless you’re in the Arctic circle IMO. I would just make sure you’re somewhere up-High with good infrastructure.
    Rockies would be my pick. Banff, Telluride, Vail.
    Conversely for Europe: Chamonix, Zermatt, Val d’Isere, Tignes.

    Interesting to see GFS progging a near cyclone-category cell to the East of PNG this week:
    Sea temps are marginal for cyclone development so you can expect it'll fizz quickly.

    GFS was keen but has stepped away with a clipper in the last few runs.
    The Canuck is into it.

    50/50 chance, but I reckon she’ll get ridged IMO.

    Lacks CAPE for any sort of adverse WX (other than flooding) but it's fed well by the moist, warm onshore flow.
    It's gonna puke rain.

    Worth noting that the MJO isn't in our region at the moment, but is peaking at Phases 8/1.

    Latest GFS LW plot says 'thank you very much and goodnight'.

    That said there does look to be a sneaky little pulse around the 15-20th October.

    However, The Frog from snow watch is predicting slightly above average!

    Weren't you the one who said you did the buller chutes in foggy, icey and very dangerous conditions?

    The Frog's only research for his forecast was the BOM enso pages and the EC Monthly control run. Hardly suffcient to ensure maximum thoroughness.
