Sudden Stratospheric Warming Event = Big Chill

Sudden Stratospheric Warming Event = Big ChillThe Extinction Protocol: 2012 and beyond website sends out weather advisory in blog, “The Big Chill: unusual stratospheric phenomenon is bringing frigid cold to U.S.” A phenomenon known as Sudden Stratospheric Warming will contribute colder weather with possibility of more snow in weeks ahead:

“An unusual event playing out high in the atmosphere above the Arctic Circle is setting the stage for what could be weeks upon weeks of frigid cold across wide swaths of the U.S….This phenomenon, known as a ‘sudden stratospheric warming event,’ started on Jan. 6, but is something that is just beginning to have an effect on weather patterns across North America…The ongoing event favors colder and possibly stormier weather for as long as four to eight weeks after the event, meaning that after a mild start to the winter, the rest of this month and February could bring the coldest weather of the winter season to parts of the U.S., along with a heightened chance of snow.”

On the surface, weather forecast seems the norm for January, but degree of cold and snow will tell real story! It’s time to bundle up!
