The jet stream has a great impact on changing weather conditions in an area because:
Does not change seasons.
Keeps atmosphere full of moisture.
Is a determinant of major air movements.
Speeds up evaporation following precipitation.
C. Is a determinant of major air movements
The Jet Stream brings moisture from Gulf, Cold comes from the North & warm air is brought in by the Atlantic. These cause YOUR weather patterns!!!!!!
