TWC: Bird's eye view of the North Pole and how the weakening of the polar vortex is allowing not so good things to go on weatherwise

OK, readers, that was a really silly title, I know.

But, I don't know how else to state it. Please click on the image to enlarge it. If you look carefully at the clouds, you can see that France is dry and so is the entire western half of the U.S.

If the polar vortex is too weak to keep the warm air currents far enough south, then they keep going north.

Sure, sometimes the west is dry and so is France, but I just thought this was a nice image to demonstrate what is likely to be a more dominant weather pattern when the Arctic warms up.

heh that was funny! but -- "what is likely to be a more dominant weather pattern" ... can you state or link to some substantiation why/how one knows that this specific pattern is likely to be more dominant? Thank you for your blog, generally.

Dear Enno, Thanks for your comment! For substantiation, please click on the relevant labels, e.g., "storm tracks...," polar vortex, and other related labels. There is plenty of research being done on these things, and whenever I run across it, I make a point to post it to the blog. Best regards, Tenney
