    a record for the farthest north it has ever been observed.
    I believe it was the continental stream, not the polar jet that governs more of Canada's weather. I don't remember when, but it did correlate with a spate of high temp records, iirc.
    Otherwise, the jet has been very consistently stuck in this pattern, doing exactly what you describe to precipitation.

    Mitt Romney is not running a campaign; he's making a hostile takeover bid.
