Although the blob is focused over the Northeast Pacific and the Gulf of Alaska, it has played a substantial role in the development of extreme weather patterns over the Lower 48 when it has formed in the past. Generally, it has been linked to abnormally warm and dry conditions in the West, and cold and stormy conditions in the East.
I wonder whether CPDN can say anything about this. It is longer than a typical weather pattern (and larger in scale), but shorter in duration than some types of events that CPDN studies.

He certainly stresses the interaction of the atmosphere and ocean conditions, which should be a strength of CPDN. I will look forward to any studies they might do.
