11-27-19 Long-range: Breaking down additional December risks…eyeing a very different month start to finish. M.

***Note: We still wanted to note that while we still don't anticipate the MJO getting into phase 3 ahead for December, that if we did end up feeling Phase 3 influence despite this, our top analog is still 1993 (which also got into phase 3) into December.

We foresee a scenario, too, where the ridging returns in the west US…
