Tropical plumes finally change their pattern


Yeah, I'm finally home from Ottawa!  December and January we had low plumes like a tackle to the knees.  All that wonderful cold Arctic air just stayed in one spot.  Now they are plunging into that air both in the Pacific and Atlantic.  What goes in must come out.  As the plumes knead and squeeze, we will get the cold air.

Ever since the big study, we are seeing less of the Polar Vortex.  Physics has made a tiny inroad for all this climate mess.  I can't wait to see what the global temperatures are doing, I don't have a clue.

ps. things are very weird this winter, I think we are rising into an El Nino.  Darn there goes my hope for a big downturn in temperatures so my spit will freeze before it hits the ground.  :)


This is the last bit of the ENSO ONI table which tends to announce El Nino's.  The red zones are declared EN's.  We are still black but rising.  Since global temps are skidding on a flat line, this will give a little bump.  We are at the top of the temp sine curve, and that flat part is still going.  Soon the roller coaster starts to drop.  The philosophers still live in 2016.  Good for them.

You can hope for the new El Nino, but the trend is for snow from November to April. No more 2000's early Spring, and swimming at the cottage at the beginning of May.
