Polar Vortex Southern Ontario 27 feb 2014 high speed minus temperature solar winds geo cells Intellicast – Weather Active Map

the idea girl says

you can watch it rotate like a hurricane here

over 74 km per hour wind speeds (category 1 hurricane speeds) turning snow into a blizzard where you have zero visibility and minus temperatures past – 25 degrees celcius (very dangerous to walk in or drive in – salt doesn’t melt ice on roads – sheets of ice, and the winds can freeze and permanently damage your skin cells within 5 minutes – you get frost bite, which gives you chronic pain and constant itching of the skin – no cure for it)

arctic air outbreak polar vortex displaced map temperatures plunge to -61 usa canada 7 jan 2014

arctic air outbreak polar vortex displaced map temperatures plunge to -61 usa canada 7 jan 2014

solar wind speeds are high and they feed geomagnetic storm cells,

it looks like our last storm is a repeat of the one jan 7 2014

the cells REPEAT their functions every 28 to 30 days so the SAME cycle of air, it’s temperatures will repeat but perhaps Earth’s axis is tilted a bit differently so the tropical winds and jet streams will hit different areas of north america

last time it affected the mid atlantic, usa and east coast usa.

this time it seems to be hitting the canadian praries by sat march 2, 2014

and then reaching downwards all the way to georgia and atlanta (florida, and cruise people beware your going to have colder then normal temperatures and cruises will be spent indoors, not out on a deck of sun, you should reschedule if you can!)

winds due to climb thursday feb 27 2014 yep were at 72 km per hour at 232 am est definitely wrong time!

usually from 12 am till 7 am, the winds die down, even during a solar wind event.

not this time, which to me seems ODD!!!!

the idea girl says

the sun was supposed to be active 2012 to 2013. we were wrong!

it’s active 2014

the sun spot numbers are 50 times higher than normal, along with other readings

Updated 27 Feb 2014

the cm flux would go up to 10 during an x class flare, so it does it again but the sfu at 178 seems higher than normal too.

NASA’s SDO Observes Strong X4,9 Class Solar Flare 25 feb 2014

yt notes
Feb 25, 2014
onstant watch on the sun, captured images of the event. This flare is classified as an X4.9-class flare. X-class denotes the most intense flares, while the number provides more information about its strength. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, appearing as giant flashes of light in the SDO images. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.
