Arctic Ice & cold effect on east Coast
February 10, 2009
CK out the up tick in the graph as we swelter down here. When we were "in the Arctic" see how the ice up there leveled out..we are a drain on Arctic cold...& now as the Cold builds again up there I think it will come back down & give us a good end to our winter.
Maybe I should have posted this on the "Gloomy winter is over" Thread but this is not an exact science..just a notion..http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/N_timeseries.png

Notice how it starts to "warm up" a little down the road as we start to cool down... Allthough Barrow is tough to f-cast out past a few days. They usually just throw some basic Guess temps out past 3 or 4 days.
Good for us..HUH?...I think?...stay tuned!
PS..they have been real cold the last few days & are below ave for this month so far..
