Jet Stream. What is the Jet Stream?. A narrow belt of high-speed winds that blow in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. They can reach up to 500km/hr. The jet stream controls the movement of storms. A meteorologist can track a storm if they know the location of the jet stream.

Jet Stream. A jet stream (or jet) is a narrow current of strong winds. Can exist at several levels, but most often applied to the high velocity winds in the vicinity of the midlatitude tropopause. Midlatitude Jet Stream Facts. Can reach 250 mph (or more)
