"August 6, 2018 Major cold and stormy winter is in the cards.Could simply evolve into it from fall Coldest air could wind up over much of the U.S. this winter.
I could see freak snowfall events into South Texas and deep into Florida this year.
None of the Decembers in the sample were "severe". Remember all the winters in the sample had a time where winter let up, whether it was a warm start like 2006 or 2014 or with back and forth. My fear is this has a chance to be more than just a focused 30-45 day period with times where it lets up."

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be. Douglas Adams
Joe generally sticks with forecasting N America ... but here we seem to see the Pioneer Model winter results for all of the N Hemisphere. Look out Western Europe? France may need some extra snow shovels? Ratty ... how many spare bedrooms do you have? Assuming you don't dry up and blow away. www.weatherbell.com/winter-2018-19-august-outlook

I could manage you and Acid, Missouri, if only to collect on that beer you owe me.
I'll be happy with the sofa, after the 3 beers Missouri owes me it'll be fine 😴😴
So, a couple of cases should do it? We can contemplate Australian desiccation versus N.America-NW.Europe snowmageddon.
Winter 2009-10 at 7000 ft. in N. Arizona yielded the snowiest winter in my 8-year residence. When big wet monsters hit southern CA they would bury N.AZ a day later. Four feet in 2 days was biggest, but it kept accumulating all winter. Driveway like a tunnel. Winter jet stream placed over L.A. yields the best southern Colorado Plateau water years. Colorado River storage projects designed for a wetter climatology hold large but shrinking pools. Big offshore jet loops to the north with a southward plunge further east really destroy western highlands snow packs.
If terrible winters tend to cluster along the descending and ascending flanks of solar minimums, then we are in the same general SC location as some notorius 1880s winters. Will it "rhyme" with events similar to the end of SC12? Good test. Take notes.
