Basic reply here but i dont have time to properly explain it...will maybe make a thread about it this week though because there are just too many on
here who dont understand the nature and liquidity of the weather.
I'll use Europe as the example. At present, there is a Polar Vortex that has become static over Greenland. This polar vortex is spawning Low
Pressure systems that are travelling east across the Atlantic and hitting western Europe. This is allowing warmer, milder weather to come into europe
from a milder maritime origin.
this coupled with a strong Jet Stream is piling the Low Pressures in which, in turn, brings in the mild weather. The Jet Stream is so strong because
of a very cold (-) value of the Stratoshpere. The colder the Stratosphere the stronger the Jet Stream, until the Stratosphere warms slightly, the
Jet Stream will continue to push in the milder air (past few months). This warming effect will also allow the polar vortex over Greenland to de
stabalise and form over a prefferd location for a cold feed into Europe.
Signs are already pointing to this to happen around mid January.
This isn't HARPP or anything sinister, this is the weather. Please trust me, the weather will chnage to a colder theme for Europe soon.
Regarding the US, i'll need to look into the set-up there, as you can appreciate i dont live there so i dontreally pay much attention to the weather
Hope this helps!
