Extended Winter Weather


The above is today’s upper level 300 mb chart. The 300 mb level, about 30,000 ft (9100 m) is where one would typically find the jet streams. The polar jet stream is clearly shown in the upper left portion of the chart. Arctic air has been dominating the northeastern US and is a reason for why the cold weather has been persisting this month.
