MasViento: Nerd Note
Many areas of Canada and the U.S. east of the Rocky Mountains are experiencing bitterly cold temperatures, and this is expected to continue into next week. Some of you may have heard of the polar vortex, a feature which normally exists at upper-levels of the atmosphere and surrounds the north pole in winter. At times this feature becomes disrupted by anomalous warming of the atmosphere and this tends to force pools of cold air far to the south. The graphics below show forecasts of anomalously warm (red) and cold (blue) temperatures in mid-levels of the atmosphere centered on the north pole. Maps show corresponding forecasts of surface temperatures. The disruption of the normal polar vortex circulation allows pockets of bitterly cold air to dive southward well into the central U.S. - Wes (on Facebook: MasViento).
Polar vortex: 2/9 to 2/13 & 2/14 to 2/18
