When a pot boils, the water moves around a bit. It’s similar with the atmosphere. As the air across the planet warms, local weather systems will move about a bit. Warmer temperatures in the Arctic have reduced the temperature difference between the equator and Arctic. This difference in temperature used to lock the Jet Stream in place. Now that the Arctic is *warmer*, the Jet Stream wobbles a bit. That means Arctic weather can now spill over into North America and Northern Europe, bringing colder winters while the planet as a whole warms. In other words, as the planet boils, the air will move around a bit.
