  1. The above synoptic is the 10mb/ upper stratosphere Petros. and yes as you are alluding too is nice and symmetrical and not wavy or breaking its yoke’ which tends to happen as the winter deepens
    Here is a live animation of the 10hPa and oh looky looky.. Some warming patches starting to emerge Petros. I think that’s when the wavy patern starts to kick in

    I like to look at the 200hpa upper stratosphere ( underneath the 10hpa) pattern as an immediate indicator of what could happen at the surface layer

    I will check out some of the other indicators another day
    cheers

  2. Here is a snap of the temp’ anomalies at the 10mb upper stratosphere layer
    29th may 2014
    A strong warm anomaly has developed off the s/west coast of sth America way up in the stratosphere of course
    and on the other side near Australia is a strong cold anomaly developing
    This imbalance should produce some wave action underneath
    and we certainly need it because the sub – polar jet at 200 hPa lower stratosphere is almost no existent currently
    Lets see how we go with this disturbance

  3. Noting 23rdJune 2014..Wave pattern in the upper stratosphere at 10mb is completely zonal and lacking activity. No current SSW warm spots.

    Stratosphere at 200 hpa. Sub tropical jet is strong but sub tropical jet remains weak

  4. Missed this warming blob at 10 hPa back in 28th July. . There appears to be some oscilation underway. The max about the 28th july. The minimum in wave activity at 21st of August.. That toka whole month.! If the oscillation continues like that there would be a max warming blob around Sept 21st. If the coming warmer spring doesn’t tone the action town. Purely speculative of course
