Weather and Latitude are not allies

Written by David Leonhardt

There is a popular assumption that if you move to higher latitudes (towardrepparttar poles) you can escaperepparttar 147304 heat, and that by moving to lower latitudes (towardrepparttar 147305 equator) you can escaperepparttar 147306 cold.

The equation is simple. But is it real? If it was, thenrepparttar 147307 most northerly capital, Reykjavík, would also berepparttar 147308 coldest...at least until they establish a country on Antarctica. Yes, it appears that latitude is slacking off and failing to keep temperatures in line.

This was brought home to me when preparing for a radio interview in Dublin, Ireland. February had just roiled in and I was sitting back comfortably in my good old Ottawa, Canada weather, scraping icicles off my toes. I was giddy with excitement over our warm spell, which it was reaching a high of minus-5 (that's about 20-degrees American). I always ask questionsrepparttar 147309 day before an interview, to learn a bit about my audience, so I askedrepparttar 147310 producer, "So what'srepparttar 147311 weather forecast in Dublin?" asked.

"Oh it's horrible," she told me. "People are bracing for a deep winter freeze that's supposed to hit tonight. It might even get as cold as minus-5!"

This blew me away, thatrepparttar 147312 folks in Dublin would be worried aboutrepparttar 147313 thermometer dips as low as ours spikes high. After all, isn't Dublin aboutrepparttar 147314 same latitude as Ottawa?

Weather forecast from an atlas

I whipped out my trusty atlas. We live almost exactly onrepparttar 147315 45th parallel. If we lived exactly on it, we would have to share our bed with a cow and a dozen chickens acrossrepparttar 147316 road – that's how close we are.

I turnedrepparttar 147317 pages to find Ireland. Could I have been mistaken? Is Dublin really quite south of us? No, it turns out that Dublin lies atrepparttar 147318 53rd parallel. Hey! They should be getting colder weather than us. That's not fair.
