Yeah, we are generally winning by pushing the cold air over to Europe.
For about a month now, we've had a pattern of equatorial air pushing right up the centre of the continent. These patterns are wonderful, and may last a month or two, but can change on a dime in a moment.
You can see the brutal clear air coming down on fuel-starved Europe.
The end result is a warmer us, and colder them on the temp anomaly map.
Although warmer than expected, it doesn't make a good news story, since it is below freezing.
