There is another blob following on behind to be fair, but not much after that

Yeah that's just starting now. Would be nice to get a little top up on the ground.

RTE Six One News was amusing tonight. Reporting on the severe cold spell currently in North America, a climatologist said it was as a result of global warming due to ice melt and warming seas, weakening the polar vortex and  causing it to drop to lower latitudes.

20 minutes later during the weather bulletin, Meteorologist Gerry Murphy commenting on the severe weather in US said it was a result of a recent phenomenom known a a Sudden Stratospheric Warming....Is Jerry secretly working for Donald Trump I wonder 🤔

Two different explanations / reasons within 20 mins on the same programme 😂😂made me chuckle 

Mind you apart from us weather geeks, the normal Joe Soap wouldnt have a bulls notion what a SSW or PV actually means so no harm done I guess.......

I'm far from an expert on the subject but I heard that climate change is leading to more SSW events taking place. So ole sleet Gerry just left out that part ha

yeah I read that recently too...a bit like chicken and egg scenario I suppose as SSW's also occured before global warming ....and there was no SSW just prior to December 2010 when a PV lobe dropped through Ireland and UK bringing us that severe cold and snowy spell  ...anyhow my wife thinks this e mail I am typing for work is taking a long time so I better get back to her and the TV 😁

As long as this isn't a precursor to RTÉ putting climate change denialists on to 'debate' their position, then no harm 😄
