flucto: Can't wait for the weather channel to start naming vortices:"OMG VORTEX ADOLF IS COMING FOR YOUR CHILDREN"
BizarreMan: If it doesn't have a name should I be concerned? I don't know!
b0rscht: Previously known as a cold front,Oh eat a bag of dicks, obscure magazine reporter. The polar vortex is almost always there (in NH winter) - it's a semipermanent meteorological circulation centered over - you guessed it - the north pole, extending soutward. If you don't like the improper use of the phrase, don't re-fricking-report it as such. Also, a cold front is just the leading edge of the cold air - not the cold air behind the front, which is what persists and freezes your nards off.Technically this isn't the 'return of the polar vortex' - and the last outbreak in the US technically wasn't 'the polar vortex' either. It's more accurate to say that a highly amplified pattern, causing significant meridional (as opposed to zonal) flow led to air that originated at the poles, and hence beneath the polar vortex, to dive down to the midlatitudes. But that's too many goddammed words and the media has the attention span and scientific comprehension of a retarded gnat, so return of polar vortex it is!Also note that these cold outbreaks are associated with surface high pressure (due to the weight of the cold air), not low pressure.
ZAZ: Great, now I'm going to be crushed as well as frozen.

ZAZ: Bondith: I'm waiting for Son of the Bride of the Valley of the Polar Vortex: The Wrath of Snow.In a really good, hard vortexing it's too cold for snow.
urger: CA is going to burn to a crisp before we get that far <b>subby</b>
flucto: BizarreMan: If it doesn't have a name should I be concerned? I don't know!All weather should be named. How is this NOT a top priority of our so called "government"?
bulldg4life: Why is this the first two weeks that they've ever talked about the polar vortex?
megarian: I am so sick of this winter.
raerae1980: So, what you're saying Subby, is that California is going to be beautiful, sunny and warm. Sounds good to me!!/we really need rain :(
leevis: I wouldn't mind so much, but my furnace went out. It shouldn't cost much, it's less than a year old and still under warranty, but I'll still have to pay the labor. Now if the furnace guy would hurry his ass up and get over here...
joshiz: Polar vortex: still not a scandal.
jayphat: megarian: I am so sick of this winter.You and me both sister. The last blast of cold air I got woke up at 4:15 in the morning to answer an alarm call because the cold air burned out a motion sensor. Nothing quite like starting your car in -17F air while in your sleep pants.
desertfool: It's either bone-chilling cold or snowing like crazy here in WI, I don't care what they call it. I really miss Arizona this time of year.
