Abstract

SYNOPSIS

A study of the sequence of mean winter temperatures since 1812 in the northeastern United States shows apparently no other than a chance relationship four-fifths of the time. The other fifth includes, two remarkable series of alternating cold and warm winters, with almost identical preliminaries of a few moderately mild winters, an ordinary or moderately-cold winter, and then a severe winter, which which opens the alternating series—severe, warm, severe, warm, etc. The opening severe winters in these two series were those of 1872–73 and 1917–18. Thus we examine with interest the records of the winters of 1876–77, 1877–78.…, 1882–83 and wonder whether the winters of 1921–22, 1922–23.…, 1927–28 will alternate cold, warm, cold, etc., a those of 45 years ago did for such a long period. A study of the weather maps of these winters of the seventies and eighties in conjunction with those of the past few years and of the present might show not only the immediate cause of these alternating winters, but also might, give us a hint as to when to expert our present series of alternations to cease.

Synopsis

The two severe storms that overtook Columbus on the return portion of his first voyage, when examined in the light of modern frontal theory, do not appear to have been simple circular storms, as previously thought, but disturbances marked by well developed fronts. The centers of both passed north of Columbus; he apparently experienced the warm sectors of both. The February storm seems to have had two cold fronts, and the March one a very sharp cold front. Storms of both kinds have been observed in the same portion of the Atlantic in recent years.
