Last of the Southern Jetstream Rain @ 10X Above Background

We took a sample swipe from the truck this evening around 10:30pm; that sample returned a reading of ten times greater than background radiation.  Our live full time outdoor airborne radiation monitor read approximately 2x over background levels.

The swipe reading is typical maximum for post August 2011 Southern Jetstream storms. This reading may be one of the last Southern Jetstream storm of the season, as a strong dip from the Northern Jetstream has pushed in behind these storms.

Post August 2011, the Northern Jetstream storms have typically had MINIMUM readings of 20x greater than background radiation. The primary difference between the Northerly and Southerly Jetstream flows is that the Northern jetstream typically flows over Fukushima.
