As March Begins, Temps Won’t Change Much Across U.S.
The jet is flowing almost directly west to east across the country. This pattern is called Zonal Flow. To the north of the jet we find cold air. To the south of the jet we find warm air. There is almost no north-south movement to the jet, and therefore, very little temperature transport to the north or south. This allows temps to remain relatively constant across the country. Cold areas stay cold. And warm areas stay warm. This will continue to be the case until the jet begins to meander north and south once again.

‘Should I go nuclear on Michael Cohen?’
Candace Owens drops stunner as Dems give Trump critic platform.
What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY reason Michael Cohen ‘turned on’ the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years. Period. She is the co-guarantor of a $20M personal loan that Mueller discovered Michael secured back in 2015 by falsely inflating the value of his taxi medallions – effectively making her part & parcel to the federal charge of ‘Making False Statements to a Financial Institution,’ to which Cohen ultimately pleaded guilty.”

Corporate attack on traditional marriage ‘more like a betrayal’
Walmart has launched a “gay dating” video as part of an advertising campaign – a corporate move that the American Family Association says likely has Walmart founder Sam Walton “rolling over in his grave.” “It’s not only a promotion of homosexuality, but it’s really an attack on God’s design for marriage between a man and a woman,” Smith continues. “We believe it’s a very dangerous lifestyle; and the fact that Walmart would release this kind of video is even more in the face of Christian people who believe in God’s design for human sexuality.”
