Significant stratospheric warming, bigger warming than what we've seen all year, is occurring in the parts of the stratosphere that haven't experienced as much warming as areas like the 1mb, 2mb regions of the stratosphere. Because those 1mb and 2mb regions are more prone to warming than the areas we posted in the images above, it means that the pattern change may occur faster than usual. It matters if the warming is close to the 100mb level, and right now, the stratospheric levels closest to the 100mb level are experiencing the most significant warming.
If you're wondering if the cold and snow is coming, the answer is YES. This appears to be the breaking point for the stratosphere. Each day that continues with the significant warming is an even better chance of a bigger and faster pattern change. We are very optimistic about this new development, as this is the biggest sign yet of a possible pattern change. Stay tuned!
