Laddm Posted March 24, 2018 Report Share Posted March 24, 2018 I am no expert, but am an informed and knowledgeable novice on space weather and its effects on our planet. Here in the Northeast specifically, we have seen a large increase in Cosmic Rays( Stratospheric Radiation) over the past few years. Geomagnetic storms greatly affect cloud nucleation along with strength and frequency of lightning and hail generated within storm clouds. This is most likely why we have had 3 occurrences of thunder snow forecasted over the past 2+ weeks. I personally have experienced thunder snow 6 times in my life but do not remember it being forecasted with such frequency as of late. I feel weather models are lacking related data to correctly forecast the violent increase in "severe weather" we are just starting to experience. I am not offering up answers, instead would like to share and gather others opinions and knowledge related to this topic. Below is a great presentation with related information. Its 60 min long but since no one can do yard work yet prob last weekend to be lazy asses!! http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1181073 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
