Just as there is currently a strong blocking high pressure over the northeastern North Atlantic, so is there a building high block over the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska shunting lows far to the south in the eastern North Pacific and it is causing lows over the western North Pacific to turn northward.

 

 

This weather pattern should allow for some winter-time great circle routes from the USWC to Far East for next several days.
