Poor manís polar vortex to make shocking summer return in eastern U.S. next week
Washington Post ^ | July 10

Call it the ghost of the polar vortex, the polar vortex sequel, or the polar vortex’s revenge. Meteorological purists may tell you it’s not a polar vortex at all. However you choose to refer to the looming weather pattern, unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S at the height of summer early next week.

First Global warming meant heat— hot summers, mild winters.

Then Global warming meant extremes—Hot summers, very cold winters.

Now global warming means very cold winters, and cool summers?

He does tend to have a “chilling” effect, doesn’t he? I think it’s because his bulk blocks out a lot of sunlight.

"It’s not at all clear what this means or what, if anything, it portends."

Here in Ohio it means normal vicissitudes of weather and portends a nice cool break from the usual July heat.

No less, no more. We've seen it here before.

It's called climate change... better known as seasons.

Pretty nippy up there for July, though some Michigan Yoopers claim they only have two seasons, Winter and Tough Sledding.

Indeed we have. A few years ago we had temps that never made it out of the high sixties for afternoon highs the last two weeks in July. It was heavenly.

Scientists have it rough now days. They have to beg for their food by coming up with the most convoluted explanations for what’s happening. The hockey stick has turned into a fiery hoop for them to jump through.

I’ve noticed NOAA is coining new words and it’s a become a pet peeve of mine.
For instance, we have “wintry”, which would be fine if it were spelled properly (wintery).
The newest is “areal”, as in “areal flood warning”. Is “area wide” too much to write?
Then there is a whole new word “derecho” which none of the forecasters can decide how to pronounce. It’s downright painful to listen to the storm experts on the Weather Channel describing this type of severe storm front. Nobody pronounces it the same way twice.

A buddy of mine went fishing in N. Canada last month. He said they were out on their boat and the wind shifted, all these mini icebergs blocked their route back in.

My daughters are heading to the UP Saturday for a week working at a camp. I told them it was nice knowing them since they’re going to freeze to death. I said where I grew up, a summer polar vortex was referred to as a cold snap.

Actually, "wintry" is the preferred spelling, and the OED has it going back to the 1590s, with "wintery" considered the variant spelling (and pronunciation)with citations only going back to the 19th Century.

I agree ...this summer seems much more like the summers of my childhood here. HOT, didn’t arrive until the end of July and August...
