~Major circulation pattern forces in a distinct climate result for spring summer 2020
~Similar in nature to spring summer 2019 weather
~Implying lots of rain, as if it will be a surprise for Midwest North America and NW Europe
~8 Omicron pattern was noticed especially after 2012
~2020 breaks the cycle namely for Alaska-CCA-Midwest N.A. and NW Europe 2019 weather
Introducing the 8 Omicron Arctic Polar Vortex pattern, pay attention to 2012-13, 2014-15, 2016-17, 2018-19 morphology or the shape of the Vortex perimeter:
8 Omicron mid-winter circulation pattern, 8 in shape for 2012, 14, 16 and 18, Omicron pattern 2013, 15,17, 19 and 20. From NOAA daily composites 600 mb temperatures (600 mb is the pressure level representing the average temperature of the entire atmosphere, 248 Kelvin, -25 C, is where the Northernmost jet stream can most likely exist). It is a Ying Yang cycle, largely caused by gradual warming Oceans and Arctic sea ice minima melts and maximum reformation (cousin of warming oceans), especially considering lost sea ice volumes as the years went by. Big news: 2019 2020 Vortex periphery looks similar to each other, despite 2019 being a significant melt summer. I suggest the latest 2020 pattern is due to CTNP consolidating Northwards, because the Vortex is getting smaller year by year. This latest Omicron Omicron 2019-2020 vortex pattern, infers 2020 being much like 2019, except for Alaska being colder and being largely within the Vortex (colder) , not as it was largely out (warmer) every winter since 2012. Refraction optical method monitoring the Western Canadian Arctic Archipelago should indicate how unique or split in two the Cold Temperature North Pole (s) will be.
Meantime, your wet soggy weather can be largely attributed to Omicron pattern whipping ocean air straight onto the Western continental coasts, as opposed to 8 shapes seasons diverting the Eastern oceans moistures and warmth Northwards. Early prognosis for 2020: hope you the enjoy more rain if you are East and West coasters, the Ying and Yang of moisture, mainly a consistent Pacific flow joining the Atlantic Gulf stream making dry spots only within central continents ....
