I have found a body of below normal water temperatures near Japan, which happens to fall within the PDO monitoring area.
Considering the PDO appears to be quite messy, a positive PDO spike may be happening.
A positive PDO does appear to enhance potential for snowfall in the winter, and I will do more research on it later on.

Strong showers and storms could very well provoke a tropical system to affect the Caribbean and potentially the Gulf of Mexico. This will definitely have to be monitored, as these storms are very active.
