Analysis: Jet Stream/Weather Conditions

Does the Jet Stream have an effect on local weather systems?

Though the Jet Stream is located in the Stratosphere, far above our local weather systems, many of our readers continue to insist that there is some sort of connection between the two.

Personally, we're thinking that many of our readers are beginning to experience "pre-senility" symptoms, but...who's to say??  

Use your resources to see if there is some sort of connection between the daily location of the Jet Stream and such daily weather conditions such as rain, thunder storms, bright and sunny days, overcast and cloudy days.

Formulate a hypothesis based upon what you see, and submit your findings to The Editor, using the appropriate Format Guidelines. 

Be sure to attach documentation which supports your hypothesis.
