Snow in Palermo, Sicily

“These are the same conditions that were experienced during the Dalton and Maunder Minimums,”

Watts Up With That?

[on Jan 1, 2015] “In Rome, arctic-inspired winds brought temperatures as low as minus eight degrees Celsius,”

    Sudden increases in temperature in the upper stratosphere.

    Waves in the stratosphere.

    Strong jumping neutrons corresponding decreases in solar activity.

    Hi from Oz, and a Happy New Year to all. Don’t be silly, the Sicilians don’t even have a word for “snow”!

    Why polar vortex attack America again.

    East of the Rockies will experience below seasonal temperatures as air masses that originated in Siberia cross over the North Pole before plunging south into Canada. The cold air crossing the open waters of the Great Lakes will produce narrow bands of lake effect snow, with dangerous travel conditions in the traditional snowbelt regions south and east of the lakes.

    Height of 17 km.

    The sudden rise in temperature in the stratosphere is visible. Here, at an altitude of 45 km.

    Currently, solar activity decreases again (increase neutrons). This will cause another wave in the stratosphere.

  6. ren says:

    Clouds in the south will bring snow in the central states.

    Russ Steele I’m not a meteorologist nor a scientist. I watch the stratosphere and solar activity.

      I watched Joe’s Saturday Update and he shows a lot of cold coming down in to the US over the next couple of weeks from the polar regions. Jan is set to be a very cold month in the midwest and the east. Relatively warm here on the west coast.

      Thanks for posting on the solar activity, I think it has a strong influence on our weather.

  8. ren says:

    The area of the strongest radiation shows the lowest pressure area above the Arctic Circle. You can see that the polar vortex is shifted. Consequently, the air can flow over America straight from Siberia over Alaska. Air flows over Europe from the Atlantic.

  9. ren says:

    Note how increasing radiation at cruise altitudes when the solar activity decreases.

      Ren,
      I take it that it is not a good time to be flying too much (e.g. and airline pilot) when all this radiatin hits?
