Arleen is the expert and this is what she thinks…
December will start out active with an active MJO tempering the strong La Nina for the first 10 days to two weeks. The second week to the third week in December will be quiet and reflect a typical La Nina pattern. However, it looks like the MJO will visit us the last week in December for hopefully, a white Christmas.
