The jet stream is what pulls the cold down so far into continental USA, all the way to the southern states. It's also why the ME is getting snowed
If you want to see what's behind the dump of arctic air, all one needs to do is check out the many sites that carry images of the jet stream.
Here, in Southern Ontario, we're seeing record cold at the moment as well, but that pulse has been bracketed by warm, moist air coming up from the
Gulf of Mexico. One day, brass monkeys are virile, the next day, they're singing all the high notes. We should see another 20 degree bump in the
temps. Let's hope it doesn't bring another damaging ice storm, because I think twice last year was more than enough for one decade.
btw... I recently took a pic of Ice Fog. I'll post it here shortly.
