Here is my latest interpretation of the ECMWF long-range forecast model through most of February.
The continues to show another widespread outbreak of very cold air during the week of Feb. 4-10 from central/eastern Canada through the eastern U.S., which makes sense based on other factors that we are currently looking at.
However, signs also point to a gradual recovery in temperatures for the rest of the month as the doors to the source of the Arctic air begin to close. I expect to see more Pacific air spreading across Canada the second half of February as the coldest air retreats up into Alaska.

Update on major eastern storm into the weekend.
Major storm system will bring heavy rain, followed by strong winds, falling temperatures and possible high elevation snow into this weekend over the East.
The 2016/2017 winter forecast for Canada has a snowy look for many.
Early November not looking all that cold, but that could change quickly later in the month.
Update on the two major storm systems approaching the West coast for late this week.
