Jet Stream Extremes
Rutgers University Climate Scientist Jennifer Francis talks about the jet stream in front of an animation of the fast flowing air current during an interview in Washington, on Friday, June 7, 2013. "It's been just a crazy fall and winter and spring all along, following a very abnormal sea ice condition in the Arctic," Francis said, noting that last year set a record low for summer sea ice in the Arctic. "It's possible what we're seeing in this unusual weather is all connected." (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)
