Frigid Winter?  Blame 4,000 Years of Wild Jet Streams

 

This winter's wild weather got its start 4,000 years ago, a new study finds.

 

The roaring jet stream, whose swooping winds drove frigid cold in the East and record warmth in the West this winter, first started twisting and turning about 4,000 years ago, according to a new analysis of ancient rainfall records from North America.  Jet stream winds race from west to east, and kinks in the narrow atmospheric current can suck Arctic cold south or hold warm air in place.

 

The study shows the jet stream's plunging pattern is a long-standing natural phenomenon.
