The UK’s weather forecasts could benefit from the use of data on the Jet Streams
Scientists have created AI that better predicts regional rainfall and temperatures across the UK, optimizing the North Atlantic jet stream data.
Climate scientists have found a connection between North Atlantic atmospheric circulation and jet streams – A recent investigation examined how the jet stream has impacted regional weather in the UK and found that it has affected summer and winter rainfall and temperatures over the past 65 years.
The Jet Stream is a giant current of air that flows from West to East, over temperate regions around the world, and influences the weather in the UK.
Much of its pattern is controlled by changes in atmospheric, oceanic, and sea-ice conditions in various key regions. These findings show for the first time that meteorologists can make more accurate predictions when they know in advance about the jet stream changes. This is especially helpful if you want to plan for next season or even further out in advance.
