1. Overview -
As predicted by GWO, the temperatures across the eastern two thirds of the United States were much colder
during the past two winters (2013-14 and 2014-15). The winters were actually the coldest since the 1970s
(As predicted by GWO), and much colder than the mild global warming period (1997-2012). And as predicted
by GWO, the west coast remained warm and dry.
GWO's Climate Pulse Technology incorporates several factors for determining the United States winter of
2015-16. Determination of the severity of the 2016 winter (November 2015 into April 2016) is based on the
Natural Climate Pulse similarties to past years, the cooling of the Artic and expanding extent of Artic ice, positions
of semi-permanent weather features such as the Aleutian low pressure center, and the presence or non
presence of an El Nino or La Nina.
Weather Patterns - 2014/15 Winter
Several factors determined the conditions experienced during the past two years. GWO predicted that the
abnormally strong Pacific High would remain in place along the West Coast of the United States, thus pushing
the Aleutian Low more northward. This resulted in warm dry conditions on the West Coast, and set the stage
for a stubborn two year pattern to remain in place across the eastern two thirds of the United States. This is all
in association with a Climate Pulse Cycle that causes abnormal weather patterns.
Also contributing to the severity of the weather pattern is a cooling Arctic Region; during the past two Arctic
summers, the high Arctic experienced about 120 consecutive days of below normal temperatures. The last
time this region experienced even 1 year similar to this was back in the 1970s, and two consecutive years with
similar conditions were back in the 1960s. With the Antarctic experiencing similar cooling, this is a strong
signal that despite the warmth on the West Coast, a Global Cooling cycle has begun.
The combination of the strong Pacific High anchored over the West Coast, retreat of the Aleutian Low, cooling
of the high and Eastern Arctic, all contributed to another year of cold Arctic Polar Vortex's dominating much of
the 2015 winter and spring across the eastern two-thirds of the United States, Canada and Greenland.
