Arctic phenomenon to cause extra-cold January at East-Coast.

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/12/19/1820257/-Thirty-Mile-High-Wave-Encircling-Earth-to-Break-over-North-Pole-on-Christmas-Day?utm_campaign=trending

When the polar vortex disruption reaches the lower atmosphere it tends to increase the surface pressure over the north pole and Arctic ocean. In particular, the Beaufort high, that is located north of Alaska over the Beaufort sea, intensifies and the flow of cold air out of the Arctic east of the Rocky mountains intensifies. The flow of cold air towards western Europe may also intensify like it did late last winter when “the beast from the east” brought bitterly cold Siberian air to western Europe. This year, the American CFS model forecasts that the eastern U.S. will be colder than normal, but not western Europe. It forecasts that a cold flow out of the north polar region will bring brutal cold to northern Siberia and Scandinavia in mid-January, but not western Europe. Time will tell. The model cannot be depended on to predict details accurately. What’s clear is that the eastern half of the U.S. is likely to be significantly colder than normal in mid-January. This forecast for mid January is consistent with what happened after major stratospheric warmings in El Niño years like this one.

1. Aren't you glad we send it your way?

Alaskans are just downright mean.... of course, it's supposed to be 30 below next week.

2. Noooooo!

It's only December 20th and I am already sick of winter! I wish I could just hibernate through the next 3 months.

3. Just remember, when cold air comes down from the North, warmer air replaces it.

4. that's what Donnie Denier fails to understand

More energy in the system means more energetic movement.

Heated air moves toward the cold "ends" of the planet and torrents of cold air rush to replace it; amplify and repeat.

We're melting the poles and cooking the rest and that just gets more drastic with more energy trapped in the envelope.

6. Balmy breezes will caress the billionaire KGOP Kleptocrats at Mar a Lago*

Too bad about you "little people" who are freezing your asses off. The republican FatCat KleptoCrat Klub will be having a luxurious, golden, glorious, gourmet festival, with caviar kisses. All at your expense, Mr. & Ms. American Taxpayer.

8. Years ago a friend who lives near Mar a Shithole had a cockroach crawl inside his ear canal

and grab onto his eardrum. The doctor used alcohol and tweezers to stun and pry it off and he said it hurt. He sleeps with cotton balls in his ears now.

If this is a Florida thing, I encourage any local DU'ers to collect and release thousands of roaches on the bedroom side of Dirty Donny's shithole mansion.

What a great headline that would be to wake up to in the morning;

"Don the Con Rushed to Palm Beach Hospital with Carnivorous Cockroaches Chewing on His Tympanic Membrane, Film at Eleven!".
