Polar Vortex Knock-Off Headed Straight Toward Us
Gothamist ^ | 7-11-2014

Posted on 07/11/2014 9:32:21 AM PDT by Citizen Zed

Trigger Warning: An unseasonable blast of cold air reminiscent of last winter's infamous Polar Vortex is headed our way next week. Tropical Storm Neoguri, off the coast of Japan, has initiated a chain reaction in weather patterns which, according to Weather Underground, will cause a ripple effect in the jet stream over western North America, resulting in a phenomenon "similar to the nasty 'Polar Vortex' pattern that set up during the winter of 2014." Guess we're still not done slurping up winter's blood from that snowman's skull. Fine, pass it over.

So this summer polar vortex is going to bring unseasonably cool weather to the country. My hunch is that the envirowackos will blame it on global warming.

Gosh, instead of the 90’s and 100+ this year, only the 70’s?

Say it ain’t so! :-P

I’m currently on a cool off break from mowing my yard here in the southern Puget Sound area - it’s in the high 80’s right now and supposed to be over 90 the next three days plus. Bring on the polar vortex!

Afraid to say that the PV will probably miss the Pacific Northwest. All the hot temps are there to stay.

You can click the skull link in the linked article to find out who wrote that. I did not bother to explore the reference further.

Why yes, of course. You see the temperature in the hemisphere is warming and there is not enough contrast in temperature between the northern hemisphere and the tropics to cause the circumfrential currents in the oceans to move warm water to colder areas and vice versa.

What does this mean?

We are all gonna die!

This is how that Swazie guy explained it in the day after so it must be true.

I guess you’re more of a mind to keep an eye peeled for a Tropical Vortex, otherwise known as a hurricane. ;^)

This whole ‘polar vortex’ thing is just getting silly, and on a par with ‘global warming’.

These ‘polar vortices’ are pretty much a constant round the globe.

Here, see for yourself.

The forecast says three days in a row over 37C - that’s about 100F.

I suspect you're not living in the Minnesota/Wisconsin/Illinois/Michigan area.

I assure you that the polar vortex which caused our “Winter That Would Never End” early this year was quite real.

The pattern shown here is exactly the same picture that was shown to everyone all winter long - that's why people are referring to it as a “polar vortex”, although that's not exactly what the meteorologists are calling it.

And it looks like it's going to bring temperatures down into the 40’s, which is almost unheard of here in July - again, quite real (for us anyways).
