No, I hadn't.
In looking at the map, it looks to me like Pacific air moved to abnormally high latitudes.
I'm curious what a map of Russia's side of the polar cap looks like for the same period.
I also wonder what all of it means regarding warm equatorial air moving north over the Atlantic.
When it meets up with this cold air moving east, it might make for some unusual weather.
That weather might get pushed into the north Atlantic countries, like the UK.
In a few days, they may get dumped on (snow) or strong winds, or both.
In terms of snow, I suppose it would depend on how much moisture the Atlantic air is carrying.

Weird weather for sure.

That's one for the climatologists.
They're reluctant to lay the blame of any one weather pattern on global warming because freak patterns have always cropped up now and then.
I think they think more long term. Like how freak weather patterns are increasing in frequency. That, they can more responsibly lay at the feet of climate change.
