Understanding Weather – not predicting – 17 May 2013

What happened?
Major disparities are prevalent across the three dimensional atmospheric range as revealed by the synoptic charts for surface levels: the ranges north to south, east to west as well as through the upper air within the troposphere.
Because there is considerable mobility throughout this system, changing patterns develop remarkably quickly only to fade or transform showing even more divergence.
For the past few weeks, the upper air anticyclonic control has maintained a semblance restricting the activities of other quite potent synoptic patterns which have appeared close to or even emanating from a developing pattern associated with this upper air control.
