Wild weekend weather pattern to exhibit nation divided by extremes

Source: Washington Post

Itís that time of year where the seasons change. But this weekend, the season you get might not be fall. It could feel like spring, summer or winter depending on where you live ó all thanks to a highly amplified jet stream pattern set to spill wacky weather over the Lower 48. The contrasts will be stunning.

The jet stream, diving south across the Western states, will unleash unusually cold weather and, in the mountains, snow. But, like a seesaw, the jet stream will bulge northward over the eastern United States, allowing warm tropical air to follow by Sunday. In the middle, over the Plains and Upper Midwest, stormy conditions will prevail.

Monday could feature a greater threat of some big-time boomers across a more widespread area. As the upper-level energy associated with the dip in the jet stream ejects eastward out of the Rockies, cold air aloft will overspread the region. Destructive winds to 75 mph and tennis-ball-size hail could accompany the nastiest storms.

To the east of the storms, the jet stream will energize repeated rounds of heavy rainfall. A slug of one to three inches is set to fall from the southwest suburbs of Chicago to Lubbock, Tex. ó beginning Saturday in spots and wrapping up sometime midweek.

So for any of the Republicans out there lurking. Keep telling yourself that Climate Change isn't real and that we shouldn't be doing anything about it. It's only going to get worse. You won't have to deal with this because the repercussions won't happen until you're long gone. It'll be your kids and grandkids that get to clean up this mess, and it'll be too late by then.

1. A nice reversal for a change

We usually get the big trough in the east while there's almost always a ridge in the west.

4. Western Pennsylvania has had very little summer weather this year

We've seen sunny, dry days here only a handful of times all summer. Only a few hot-hot days at the end of June and a few in August. The rest of the time it's been cloudy, rainy, damp, coolish and humid. We feel like we've transformed into the Pacific Northwest. Thinking back, it's been like this for the last 3 or 4 summers in a row. Seems like the big storms mostly miss us here, we just get a lot of rain.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining because I don't really enjoy the hot-hot weather. But it's nice to see the sun occasionally and we haven't had much sunshine here. On the other hand, we have plenty of water. Rivers and reservoirs are full to overflowing and that's a good thing. Meanwhile the winters have been milder to the point that PA ski resorts are having trouble keeping snow on the mountains long enough for people to ski.

Is this how our weather will be from now on? I don't know, but I suppose things could be worse.
