Meteorologist Jeff Masters: Climate Change Affecting Weather Patterns Regardless of Season

JEFF MASTERS: Yeah, you can always look at the jet stream to try and look at what our weather is doing. The jet stream acts as the boundary between warm air to the south and cold air to the north. And right now that jet is very far to the south over the southeast U.S., which allows a lot of cold air to spill southwards out of Canada and create the cold conditions we need to form this kind of an ice storm and snowstorm.
