Effect of coming 'warm wave' in the Arctic
« on: March 02, 2014, 03:39:56 PM »
Has anyone else here looked at the long-range ECMWF or other forecasts? It looks as though ALL the Northern Hemisphere's cold air over the next 10 days is about to be pulled into North America, and then out over the Atlantic to die a quick death over the open water.

If this happens, does it mean 'game over' for thickening the ice, for the most part?

My son and I were just talking about this last night.  I'm an amateur, but it makes sense to me that having the cold air over the mid latitude is not a good thing for the ice.  I think that things are about to get really interesting.
