Jet Stream Ridge Sows Havoc in West, East

Climate Denial Crock of the Week

I showed the video above to a group last night, and serendipitously could talk about the actual current weather conditions as a good example of what we expect to see more and more often in a changing world.

Current jet-stream set up features a strong “ridge” high over Alaska, diverting moisture away from the fires of California, while setting up a roller coaster for frigid air to pour down on to the Eastern US.
Hence early winter storms for Easterners while the west continues to suffer a longer than historical fire season.
