jet stream

Postby Doug Shaw » Sat Sep 28, 2013 11:31 am

Heard this interesting piece on NPR the other day.

Any of our weather geeks have thoughts or opinions?

"The double jet stream also played a big role in the Colorado flooding this month, Francis says. High up in the atmosphere, one stream was carrying moist air from the Pacific to the Rockies. Then, lower down, an unusual eddy was pulling in more moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. Finally, an unusual bulge in the jet stream was causing all this weather to stall near Boulder."

I'm not a weather geek, but very interesting none-the-less
I look up to the mountains - does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! Psalm 121:1-2
