I remember reading articles about how man made global warming was going to cause drought. It's turning out to be the catch all for any and every unusual weather phenomenon anywhere.
The poles are as much as 15-degrees warmer than the global mean average temp.
Evidently,this affects the Jet Stream,which in turn can cause redistribution of precipitation patterns as it meanders around in Black Swan dynamics; moving high and low pressures around the map.
