A white Christmas will be a rarity across most of the U.S. this year, as December temperatures have been more typical of November, and very little snow has fallen. Large portions of the eastern half of the country have been more than 4°F above average so far in December, with temperatures averaging 8°F above average over portions of North Dakota.This is quite a switch from the previous two winters, which were both much colder and snowier than average. All three winters featured La Niña conditions in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, so that cannot explain the difference. A key reason for the December warmth this year and the cold and snowy Decembers of 2010 and 2009 is a weather pattern known as the Arctic Oscillation.

The Arctic Oscillation and its influence on winter weather
The Arctic Oscillation (AO), and its close cousin, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), are climate patterns in the Northern Hemisphere defined by fluctuations in the difference of sea-level pressure between the Icelandic Low and the Azores High. It is one of oldest known climate oscillations--seafaring Scandinavians described the pattern several centuries ago. Through east-west oscillation motions of the Icelandic Low and the Azores High, the AO and NAO control the strength and direction of westerly winds and storm tracks across the North Atlantic. A large difference in the pressure between Iceland and the Azores (positive AO/NAO) leads to increased westerly winds and mild winter in the U.S. and Western Europe. Positive AO/NAO conditions also cause the Icelandic Low to draw a stronger south-westerly flow of air over eastern North America, preventing Arctic air from plunging southward. In contrast, if the difference in sea-level pressure between Iceland and the Azores is small (negative AO/NAO), westerly winds are suppressed, allowing Arctic air to spill southwards into eastern North America more readily. Negative AO/NAO winters tend to bring cold winters to Europe and the U.S. East Coast, but leads to very warm conditions in the Arctic, since all the cold air spilling out of the Arctic gets replaced by warm air flowing poleward. The winter of 2009 - 2010 had the most extreme negative NAO and AO since record keeping began in 1865; a very extreme AO/NAO also developed during the winter of 2010 - 2011. But this year, the pattern has flipped. The AO has been almost as strong, but in the opposite sense--a positive AO, leading to very warm conditions over the U.S. Unfortunately, the AO is difficult to predict more than a week or two and advance, and we don't understand why the AO can vary so much from winter to winter. The latest predictions from the ECMWF and GFS models show this positive AO pattern continuing for at least the next ten days. Real winter conditions won't arrive in the U.S. until the first week of January, at the earliest. Between now and the end of 2011, the only major winter storm the GFS model expects in the U.S. will be in the Pacific Northwest, on December 30 - 31.

This week, NOAA's ClimateWatch Magazine posted an excellent tutorial on the Arctic Oscillation and how it is affecting our winter weather this year.

November 2011: Earth's 12th warmest on record
November 2011 was the globe's 12th warmest November on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). November 2011 global land temperatures were the 16th warmest on record, and ocean temperatures were the 12th warmest on record. Global satellite-measured temperatures for the lowest 8 km of the atmosphere near average, the 20th or 11th warmest in the 34-year record, according to Remote Sensing Systems and the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH). Wunderground's weather historian, Christopher C. Burt, has a comprehensive post on the November 2011 Global Weather Extremes Summary.

A warm November for the U.S.
In the contiguous U.S., November ranked as the 25th warmest November in the 117-year record. Thirteen states in the Northeast and Upper Midwest recorded a top-ten warmest November, and no states had a top-ten coldest November. Eight states had a top-ten wettest November--Indiana, Ohio, Missouri,Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. One state had a top-ten driest month, Minnesota. Texas had its 39th driest November on record, keeping 76% of Texas under extreme to exceptional drought as of December 13, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

A weak La Niña continues
A borderline weak/moderate La Niña event continues in the equatorial Pacific, where sea surface temperatures were approximately 1.0°C below average during the first half of December. The impacts of a La Niña on U.S. weather are well-defined. It is likely that the drought in the South, especially Texas, will continue, along with above average temperatures. The Northwest can expect cooler than average temperatures, as well as the potential for another winter with a heavy snowpack across the western United States.

Arctic sea ice extent third lowest on record
Arctic sea ice extent was at its third lowest on record in November, behind 2006 and 2010, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Sea ice records date back to 1979.

Donations sought for the East Africa famine
Weather Underground has partnered with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to help the Horn of Africa region during the ongoing famine. With the help of the Weather Underground community, we hope to raise $10,000 that will go toward helping the refugees survive the crisis. Weather Underground will match the community's donation dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 for a total donation of $20,000. Please visit the East Africa famine donation page to help out. Ninety cents of every dollar donated goes directly to the people in need.

REMARKS:
From an intensity perspective four consecutive IR images have suggested 0.6 to
0.7 of spiral wrap implying a DT of 3.0. Macluer Island, about 45 nm SE from the
centre, is reporting 35 knots [one minute mean] gusting 40 knots in recent
observations. Stronger winds are expected on northern side of the system due to
interaction with the monsoon flow. As such the system has been upgraded to
category one status.

Centre is fixed by Darwin radar - though at the limit of effective range - and
surface observations. System is relatively small in size at 40 nm, though gale
radius has been expanded on the northern side to 60 nm.

Model guidance continues to reflect the slow movement in the short term due to
system being balanced between the monsoon westerlies to the north and the
mid-level ridge to the south. GFS continues to be discounted due to poor initial
analyses. Other than that a consistent model trend is for slow short term motion
in the 6 to 18 hour time frame, followed by a track to the south and then
eventually east southeast over the Top End as the mid level ridge to the south
weakens.

CIMMS upper level analyses suggests a weak TUTT feature on the western flank
has been a limiting feature to development. Due to proximity to land, and to
upper flow limitations, maximum forecast intensity has been capped at 55 knots
10 minute mean.

Longer term redevelopment in the Gulf of Carpentaria is a feature of a number of
models.

Issued at 4:48 am CST on Sunday 25 December 2011

A Cyclone WARNING is current for coastal areas from Dundee Beach to Milingimbi
including the Tiwi Islands and Darwin .

A Cyclone WATCH continues for coastal areas from Milingimbi to Nhulunbuy and
inland to Jabiru .

At 3:30 am CST Tropical Cyclone Grant, Category 1 was estimated to be
65 kilometres north northwest of Croker Island and
260 kilometres northeast of Darwin
and is moving east northeast at 4 kilometres per hour.

Category 1 Tropical Cyclone Grant has developed north of the Coburg Peninsula.
It should remain slow moving over the next 6 to 12 hours before moving south,
over the Cobourg Peninsula, on Sunday night and into the Van Diemen Gulf during
Monday. Present indications have it crossing the coast again east of Darwin
later on Monday.

GALES with gusts to 110 kilometres per hour are expected to develop between
Cape Fourcroy and Milingimbi, including the Tiwi Islands, Cape Don and Croker
Island this morning.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with gusts to 130 kilometres per hour may develop if the
cyclone continues to intensify, affecting parts of the coast between Snake Bay
and Croker Island on Sunday night.

Darwin may experience GALES on Monday on the edge of the tropical cyclone as it
passes to the east. GALES may also extend inland to Jabiru on Monday.

GALES may extend further east to Nhulunbuy on Monday if the tropical cyclone
takes a more easterly path.

Tides will be HIGHER THAN NORMAL between Cape Don and Goulburn Island. Large
waves may produce MINOR FLOODING of low-lying coastal areas.

HEAVY RAIN is expected to cause localised flooding and significant stream rises
over the northern Darwin-Daly, Arnhem and northern Roper-McArthur Districts.
The Territory Controller advises residents from west of Goulburn Island to
Snake Bay, including Cape Don to TAKE SHELTER NOW.

Constanza, Dominican Republic, is the highest sizable town there at 3,900 to 4,200 feet. They have hit freezing a few times but not since 1958. They have reached 90 once. It has reached the upper 30s in July there!

The highest weather station in the Dominican Republic is Valle Nuevo, at 2,260 meters or 7,415 feet. Temperatures there have reached -8 C, or 17.6 F Las Piramides, near Valle Nuevo at a higher altitude of 2,600 meters or 8,530 feet has unofficially reported a temp of -9 C or 15.8 F. Here is a detailed report in Spanish about the climate of the Dominican Republic including Valle Nuevo.

The highest peak in the Dominican Republic and all the Caribbean islands is Pico Duarte at 10,164 feet.
