After the shift of the jet stream comes the next phase of circumstances which have already put in an appearance on the eastern side of America, as an Arctic vortex.

This is caused by dissolving ice molecules in the northern hemisphere craving more space. The water that is being produced is pushing the remaining ice molecules further into our southern hemisphere where they are causing a belt of destructive high and low pressure action.

This I predict will produce the type of winter we have not seen for years.
