Nation’s Current Snowfall Depth
Jet streams are relatively narrow bands of strong wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere, typically occurring around 30,000 feet in elevation. Within jet streams, the winds blow from west to east, but the band often shifts north and south because jet streams follow the boundaries between hot and cold air. Since these hot and cold air boundaries are most pronounced in winter, jet streams are the strongest during both the northern and southern hemisphere winters.
This map moves in 6-hr increments, beginning at 7:00 a.m. this morning. The brighter the reds, the stronger the winds at 30,000 feet.
The Drought Monitor is updated each Thursday. The map below was updated on Thursday, October 26. Drought continues to intensify across the state. (This map will be updated later this morning.)
