SSW is a very complex action that takes place about 30-50km's above the north pole. It is not caused by HAARP, it is natural and its what happened in
2010, 1996, 1987, 1963 and 1947 but to name a few.
Basically, the temperature, approximately at ozone height is around -70oC during the winter nights above the pole, when it rises rapidly, i.e. over a
couple of days to say -40/50oC it has an effect on the Jet Stream.
When the Jet Stream is shifted, the default UK weather shifts and allows cold continental or arctic air to flood south, the cold block takes hold and
the Jet shifts over Europe. At the moment, instead of the Jet being over Northern UK, its heading towards Spain.
Back to now:
Thos of you under snow just now, THAT IS NOT THE SNOW EVENT.
This snow we have just now is an unpredicted band of snow that is very very minor in comparison to whats to come.
As of just now ther eis still uncertainies on the trajectory and the cold block influence. It looks like it will stall over central England and then
pivot on itself an dhead out of the UK via the SE of England. Meanwhile snow will pack into the N and NE of England through convective showers off of
the North Sea.
The wind chill will be very high and the snow, in places may last +24 hours.
Advice to all, dont travel unless you have too. Stay in, have blankets and candles incase of power cuts and check on any neighbours that are elderly
before you go to bed at night.
Watch the weather for updates, expect the worst to be over by Sunday nightr before the next batch arrives on Monday!!!
