California Drought/Polar Vortex Jet Stream Pattern Linked to Global Warming

Dr. Jeff Masters, April 16, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

From November 2013 - January 2014, a remarkably extreme jet stream pattern set up over North America, bringing the infamous "Polar Vortex" of cold air to the Midwest and Eastern U.S., and a "Ridiculously Resilient Ridge" of high pressure over California, which brought the worst winter drought conditions ever recorded to that state. A new study by Utah State scientist S.-Y. Simon Wang found that this jet stream pattern was the most extreme on record, and likely could not have grown so extreme without the influence of human-caused global warming.

Preliminary data from NASA indicates that globally (land-ocean temperature index), it was the 4th warmest March on record (since 1880).

There is little purer than Trout fishing in America. It's timeless, romantic, and above all else it represents the end of winter.

Shelter and transportation accessibility are of paramount importance to people with disabilities in disaster situations.

A wintry pattern will continue as a series of troughs rotate through the Northeast over the next two weeks. Several shortwaves will have the potential to amplify into larger storm systems. A period of interest for winter weather revolves around St. Patrick's Day. Stay tuned!
