So how long have they been measuring?
The first continued measurements of the stratosphere were taken by Richard Scherhag in 1951 using radiosondes to take reliable temperature readings in the upper stratosphere (~40 km) and he became the first to observe stratospheric warming on 27 January 1952. After his discovery, he assembled a team of meteorologists specifically to study the stratosphere at the Free University of Berlin and this group continued to map the northern-hemisphere stratospheric temperature and geopotential height for many years using radiosondes and rocketsondes.
In 1979 when the satellite era began, meteorological measurements became far more frequent. Although satellites were primarily used for the troposphere they also recorded data for the stratosphere. Today both satellites and stratospheric radiosondes are used to take measurements of the stratosphere.
So yeah let’s extrapolate from where there’s a paucity of data 🤨
P. S. The vortex wandering is more likely to be due to solar/lunar influences.
Polar vortex [image credit: NASA]
Changing polar vortex patterns and wavy jetstreams – do they suggest solar magnetic changes as sunspots decline, or another 0.01% of trace gases in the atmosphere, or something else? Much scientific head-scratching, although research has been going on for a while.
It might seem counterintuitive, but the dreaded polar vortex is bringing its icy grip to parts of the U.S. thanks to a sudden blast of warm air in the Arctic, writes Seth Borenstein.
Get used to it. The polar vortex has been wandering more often in recent years.

Worth a watch.
What the jetstream giveth in warmth, it can easily taketh away.
P.S. Jamie if only all cold weather was ‘weather’….if there’s an opportunity the climate change meme wants it all;
SNOW in the Savannah – Climatism
Snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event.”
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”
Dr David Viner – Senior scientist, climatic research unit (CRU)
THE planet’s “climate control knob” – CO2 – dumps a load of fresh global warming on the South African Savannah.
THE Guardian reports with no mention of “CLIMATE CHANGE”!?
ALAS, every organisation has rules and a code of conduct. The Guardian’s is easy…
HOT = CLIMATE
COLD = WEATHER
Animals more used to desert heat have been photographed enjoying the snow after a cold front brought snowfall to parts of South Africa over the weekend.
Giraffes, antelope, rhinoceroses and elephants were…

When you receive finding from the EU, expect to be covered in c**p. The only reason this was the top story on the beeb since yesterday is due to desperation. As Joe B has capably shown its the Atlantic stupid and not trace gas.

Latest crap from the warmist establishment, gleefully blown up by the BBC
It may sound like the title of a low budget sci-fi movie, but for planetary scientists, “Hothouse Earth” is a deadly serious concept.
Researchers believe we could soon cross a threshold leading to boiling hot temperatures and towering seas in the centuries to come.
Even if countries succeed in meeting their CO2 targets, we could still lurch on to this “irreversible pathway”.
Their study shows it could happen if global temperatures rise by 2C.
An international team of climate researchers, writing in the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, says the warming expected in the next few decades could turn some of the Earth’s natural forces – that currently protect us – into our enemies.
Each year the Earth’s forests, oceans and land…

The only wrong kind we have is not weather, that will do as it always does, but swamp dwelling, ambulance chasers which sadly we may never run out of. The biggest threat we face is drowning in the effluent from their bloated, pustulent ignorant cake holes.
To pick up on what Kip wrote
[we should be cornered concerned with] an ever increasingly populous mostly focussed in the drier South – where we are more likely to pick up a drier continental flow than the more Atlantic influenced North and West – and a lack of reservoirs to deal with these dry patches we often hit along the way. According to a 2013 BBC article only one resevoir was built in London in the past 100 years:
Millions of extra litres of drinking water must be sourced to stop parts of London running dry over the coming decades, Thames Water has warned.

Arctic ice watchers looking for holes in the ice found one in Bering Sea and raise alarms about it. Yes, the annual maximum is lower, entirely due to open water in Bering Sea, which melts out every summer anyway.
Elsewhere Arctic ice is ordinary, except for Barents Sea where there seems to be an ice machine that added 238k km2 to the extent there, an increase of 46% since March 1.
To paraphrase David Viner: “Where is all that damn snow coming from?”
US Submarine breaks through ice in Beaufort Sea March 17.
I haven’t seen a discovery like this since the Met Office were rolling out excuses for cold winters (oh look it’s the Jetstream and the Atlantic) 😝
In an online publication, this astronomer reports the detection of a very bright object in the night sky that wasn’t there before. Turns out, he’s thousands of years late for this discovery, says LiveScience.
Astronomer Peter Dunsby just made a groundbreaking discovery, after noticing a very bright “star” pop up in his field of view at an observatory at the University of Cape Town that was not present two weeks prior.
Too bad Dunsby was perhaps thousands of years late … the bright object was the planet Mars.
