already knows what's going on ...I know the rule of thumb about higher
activity...warmer temps but this is different.
I am referring to the relationship with steering currents. I believe
there are many out there but it depends upon the other variables
One example of many ....a large trans equatorial Positive recurrent
coronal hole (Seven times)from October 1999-April 2000. Played with
the steering currents. Started writing about it during occurrance.
Seven data groups...Eight days ...So this is 56 days out of the 90 day
winter...Seperated groups ...Three day cold period...Five day warm
period....Warm period starts when proton denisity level reached 10
p/cc while windstream/sector is arriving. So the three cold days occur
before the five warm days.
So cold days were actually occurring when the c-hole was making it's
central meridian crossing....Baliunas and Soon found a correlation
with cooler troposphere temperatures and C-holes...I sent it to her
and she wrote back asking if she could send it to Willie. I told her I
I forget what the Dec-Feb winter anomaly average at Reagan National
was but it was considerably above average. I think the mean
temperature difference between the 21 day and 35 day groups was almost
The average high temperature anomaly for the warm period days
(35) ..post 10 p/cc... was around 6 degrees above average. (The nights
were warmer...clouds etc.. higher lows...raised the mean average
When you seperated the 56 days from the rest of the winter it ended
up being almost normal (within about one degree I think)
Major northeaster...in February ...which I believe was solar eruption
related.... skewed the warm days by pulling down very cold air or it
would have been even way higher.
I think in two or three consectutive C-hole appearances the anomaly
between the two different groups was around 15 degrees.
