I hope you are aware of how far ahead of the competition TSwails has been in catching the trends of our early winter weather pattern.

Together we can create one of the best, most unique, and rel...

I've been trying to get a handle on the long range pattern the past few days and I can tell you I'm challenged.Two of the big teleconnective drivers I look at to determine trends are the MJO and the EPO. I'm getting some conflicting signals. Let's start with the MJO.
