Rossby waves are what they are RG when the jet stream meanders and what do you think our summer was caused by -similar process -big blocking high in the downstream of good old hot australia - big low forms over OZ from the heat the big red country absorbs and we get the downstream effect

we had one two years ago as well if you remember southland's dry spring
