Violent jet stream across the northwestern Atlantic today with wind speeds around 400 km/h at 300 mbar, Feb 20th

Exceptional wind speeds are being observed within the jet stream across the north Atlantic today. This jet is related to the intense bombogenesis cyclone that has developed last night in the north Atlantic last night. Wind speeds up to almost 400 km/h are being observed at 250-300 mbar height (approx. 10000 m above the ground)! Jet streams are usually the strongest during winter months as the temperature difference between the Arctic region and the mid-latitudes is the highest. Here is the EarthNullschool.net model analysis of the 250 mbar jet stream across the Atlantic this morning – it’s core has the average/sustained speed of 397 km/h! Earlier today, around 00 UTC the core was even stronger and wind speeds were up … Continue reading Violent jet stream across the northwestern Atlantic today with wind speeds around 400 km/h at 300 mbar, Feb 20th
