NOT SEVERE COLD – JUST PROLONGED!

NOAA – NORTH HEMISPHERE JET STREAM SATURDAY FORECAST
As we check on NOAA’s update on the Polar Jet Stream, it looks like inland temps can dip as low as the upper 20s in North Florida Saturday morning. As winds die down late Saturday, a frosty morning may be on tap for Sunday.

Why is the jet stream turning sharply southward toward the eastern U.S. so often lately?

THE SURFACE WATER TEMPS IN THE GULF OF ALASKA ARE VERY WARM!
The lower atmosphere is warmed by the northeastern Pacific sea temps. This can boost the jet stream northward along North America’s Pacific coast. As the westerlies swing northward into the Arctic, they can swing southward over central Canada and into the eastern U.S.
