Why is it colder than usual 2022?

Why is it still so Cold in April??? Where is SPRING??
Why is it still so Cold in April??? Where is SPRING?? Where is SPRING?? If you’re wondering why the springtime weather is taking its sweet, sweet time to show up, you’re definitely not alone. Winter is having itself a grand old time sticking around in many parts to the United States, like that awkward last party guest who just hasn’t gotten the hint they need to leave. In fact we had, three different storm systems that set cold-weather records, and dumped snow in many parts of the country where t-shirt season should have already been in full swing. Could you hear that collective ughhhh? So what gives!?! Here’s what you need to know. Why is it still so cold this late in the year & when will it warm up? Two words: polar vortex. An upper level low pressure system anchored up in Canada is currently pushing a wave or Arctic air downward in what is hopefully…
Spring forecast: Lingering cold could deliver April snowstorms

Frigid 2022? Blame it on La Niña – MPR News
Frigid 2022? Blame it on La NiñaTemperatures running about 5 degrees colder than average so far in 2022.Typical La Nina winter and spring patternNOAATired of cold toes and fingers, Minnesota? You can put the blame squarely on La Niña. La Niña is the cold water phase of the tropical Pacific Ocean temperature pattern we can the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. (ENSO) These oceanic patterns impact large-scale jet stream patterns in the atmosphere. Here’s a thumbnail sketch from NOAA.El Niño and La Niña are the warm and cool phases of a recurring climate pattern across the tropical Pacific—the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, or “ENSO” for short. The pattern shifts back and forth irregularly every two to seven years, and each phase triggers predictable disruptions of temperature, precipitation. These changes disrupt the large-scale air movements in the tropics, triggering a cascade of global side effects.Equatorial Pacific Ocean temperatures are running much colder than average.Pacific Ocean sea surface temperature departure for March 2022.NOAAMinnesota getting La Niña’s cold shoulder The La Niña version of ENSO favors a persistent cold northwest jet stream flow across North America.

*April Forecast* Weather patterns are now adjusting to the Polar Vortex collapse, creating a weak jet stream as we head deeper into Spring April weather across the Northern Hemisphere will be shaped by the Polar Vortex collapse event from last month. Unseasonably cold weather events will continue over North America, with a weakened circulation and a disrupted jet stream pattern. The Polar Vortex is a very powerful short-to-medium term weather driver during every cold season. For this reason, we monitor the activity high above in the stratosphere. The Polar Vortex underwent a strong collapse event in late March, with the effects now coming down from the higher levels of the atmosphere. The already weak circulation will receive a new wave of disruption. THE RISE AND FALL OF THE POLAR VORTEX Every year as we head into autumn, the polar regions receive less and less sunlight. With less solar energy, cooling begins over the north pole. But as the polar temperatures drop, the atmosphere further south is still relatively warm as it continues to receive light and energy…
Why mid April is seeing days as cold as January – WUTR
WUTR/WFXV – CNYhomepage.com by: Daniel Maslowski Posted: Apr 19, 2022 / 01:24 PM EDT Updated: Apr 19, 2022 / 01:51 PM EDT CENTRAL NEW YORK (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – As winter weather makes a return here in CNY, we are reminded that even in the middle of spring, snowstorms are possible. April 19th, 2022 is forecasted to have a high temperature of 42 degrees, and as hard as it is to believe, that’s even colder than January 19th of this year. Why are we experiencing this cold weather this far into spring? It has to do with low-pressure systems that bring us rain and snow showers. This Low was particularly strong because as it pushed up the east coast, it phased together with a second low moving in from the west, gaining strength. This helped to really shift our weather pattern and bring in cold Canadian air from the north. With that colder air moving into CNY, we saw that low-pressure system bring heavy snow showers with gusty winds at 30+MPH.
April has been colder than average, but a pattern shift will …
April has been colder than average, but a pattern shift will soon change that After what seemed like a sunny and warm March, a bit of an April chill seems to have set hold over the Tri-State. As a matter of fact, so far, April has been tracking around -3.5°F below average (Figure 1). Sure, we’ve seen some 70s so far, but we’ve seen a lot of days fail to reach above average. Because of this we’ve had 14 out of 17 days so far be below average with only three above average days. You may already be wondering if we’ll see any warmth returning to the Tri-State anytime soon. Especially because lately we’ve been in quite a showery, cool, and gloomy pattern.Figure 1: High temperatures for each day of April 2022 so far.Fortunately, the Climate Prediction Center has a forecast which depicts the chances of anywhere in the United States experiencing above or below average temperatures between six and ten days into the future. The current temperature outlook for the next 6-10 days, actually shows a 50% chance of the Tri-State seeing above average temperatures (Figure 2)! What this means, is that in the near future…

April 2022 U.S. Climate Outlook: Warmth favored for the …
April 2022 U.S. Climate Outlook: Warmth favored for the southern and eastern U.S. Spring is a season of contrasts. One day, you could be basking under summer-like warmth. The next day, you may be shaking your fist at the cloudy sky as a chilly rain falls on your head. Which of those outcomes is most likely where you are for the month of April as a whole? Let’s look at the April 2022 climate outlook from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. Temperatures are favored to be well above average for the southern and eastern United States and well below average for the Pacific Northwest. For precipitation, much drier than average conditions are once again favored for the Southwest, while a much wetter than average April is most likely for the Great Lakes, Northeast, and Pacific Northwest. Map of the contiguous United States (view Alaska) showing which of three precipitation outcomes—much wetter than average (green), average, or much drier than average (brown)—are most likely for the month of April 2022. Darker colors mean greater chances, not how far above or below average precipitation is likely…
