    What caused the abnormally divergent jet stream is subject to debate.

    thats exactly the way how climate change works its way into the weather. All weather is on the face always weather but if one asks for its reasons, one is led back to fundamental relations like where are the jet streams going, whats the temperature differential of the latitudes, and stuff like that, and thats exactly what climate change is changing. So .. when climate changes, there is no weather (unusual or not) that isnt affected by it. Which is in a way a trivial statement, as climate is by definition a sum over weather. Overall, this entire dichotomy (weather as opposed to climate) is a false contrast. They are two sides of the same coin.
