Cooling North Pacific Hints at Positive PDO

A general cooling of the majority of the Pacific Ocean over the past three months shows what could be an increasing possibility of a positive PDO. As shown below, a positive PDO is shown by cooler than normal temperatures across much of the Northern Pacific. If the PDO goes positive, it does enhance snowfall in the winter, and a +PDO and El NiƱo could spell a crazy Northeast winter.
