Stratosphere and Polar Vortex Watch in Weather Discussion - Winter Posted March 4, 2018 As far as I can see this historic SSW is in fact (slowly migrating into) the final warming. I don't see any significant restoration happening coming weeks. The stratospherical reverse flow has dropped but is still very neutral. I am asking myself what this dynamically quiet context will mean for the coming weeks and spring. Lingering LP's and shallow HP's don't sound good to me, and don't produce much trop-strat effects. Do we have comparing years?
