For The First Time in 200 Years of Recorded Weather History, Moscow’s Wintertime Average Temperature Is Above the Freezing Point

There is always a first time.

But this weather anomaly has a bitter taste!

Here the Tweet:

Again this is due to the very positive Arctic Oscillation that Earth is currently experiencing, that confines colder air in polar regions, resulting in the highest North Pole ice cover in early Februar in the last 11 years.

This extreme positive Arctic Oscillation is one of the main reasons winter has been absent in much of the eastern United States (except for this weekend) and parts of Europe… And it’s also helping to turn the North Atlantic into a virtual bomb cyclone express lane.
