ABSTRACT
The article investigates the connection between the rapid warming of the Arctic and the mid-latitude weather patterns in 2013. Topics discussed include the declining sea ice cover on the Arctic Ocean, the disappearance of spring snow on Arctic land areas, and the impact of the disproportionate high-latitude warming on the large-scale atmospheric circulation of the Northern Hemisphere.
