Climate Change in Arctic Leads to More Extreme Cold Weather Events
Accelerating Arctic warming likely responsible for severe winter weather in U.S. and elsewhere.
AUSTIN, TEXAS — Accelerating Arctic warming as a part of global warming is likely responsible for severe winter weather like powerful snowfalls and abnormal cold spells in the northern hemisphere, according to a new study.
The study, in the journal Science, explains the influence of climate change on the Arctic increases the likelihood of winds above the North Pole being stretched, which in turn makes extreme cold weather events in the U.S. and elsewhere more likely.
