Hello all, As we all know, the UK is currently in a heatwave (July 27th). It is remarkable so far for not only its strength of the heat but the duration of the heatwave too (Since around June 19th to July 27th (Current),). The media is reporting interviews from UK meteorologists, asking why we are currently in a heatwave, with many answering that it is due to the jet stream marandering North to the UK, thus allowing hot air from a situated high-pressure system over Central Europe to divert up North towards the UK. That's all fine and dandy, but I ask "Why is the Jetstream maraundering North and why is it currently so weak?" So, what do you guys think? Why are we experiencing such a strong heatwave? As in, what weather drivers are causing it to happen in the first place? Let's get this discussion going!
The jet stream looks rather odd. If you look at this site, Over past months, the jet steam is only strong across the Atlantic. It is almost gone across Russia and is nothing to write home about across the Pacific. What is different. Could it be that large block of ice that sits on top of Greenland. With solar radiation being reflected back into space and hence not warming the atmosphere from below and with melting ice, cooling the atmosphere in its region, Greenland will be an area of prevailing sinking air as the air radiated heat into space and cools. This will power the Polar Hadley Cell and where it meets the Ferral cell, we will have a jet stream. If the Arctic becomes ice free will we see a jet stream that circles Greenland or will the jet stream completely disappear.
