Its the end of  march its Autumn (fall) here in Australia yet its still in the 30s (80s-90s) in most places. Also its the driest march on record in many places and warmest I think. I think it will be a late long winter for us down here. It will be cold but little rain.

Last spring at this time it was unusually hot and dry.  This spring is cold and rainy even a little snow.  I think January was warmer.  The weather seems so messed up anymore.

In the paper it says that this Easter is expected to be the coldest on record, with temperatures plummeting to -15 in some places.

I didn't want to drag this into another climate change denial thread (its been done elsewhere as we speak), but cold snaps which are atypical are strong evidence for climate change just as heat waves are.

And the key premise in climate change is that the climate will become warmer. (i also don't want another climate alarmist thread)

Down under we are having a serious drought. One day of rain in the last two months. Temperatures have been above 25oc for the past 4 months. It reminds me of the endless summers of my childhood that streched into April (like back in 92).

The mean temperature will become warmer and cause local climate regimes to shift (colder or warmer). There are very good reasons why a warmer planet can cause cooling in Northern Europe.

Yeah the weather has been very odd.  Was almost warm last week. Now this.  Temp change seemed very sudden, was at work about 3 days ago doing some outside work and the the wind dropped off and then bang! picked up at galeforce strength and full of sleet and heavy hail.  Went and checked the outside temp guage and it had fallen from +5 cent to -2 in about 10 mins.

Its gonna be fun if the greenland icecaps melt and block the gulf stream, will need to get used to colder weather etc we will have a canadian style climate then, longer colder winters etc and waaaaay more snow than we get at the moment.

I remember in High School comparing latitudes of Newfoundland and Ireland, and wonder why the latter is so much warmer than the former.  If that current shuts down, Europe is in for some cold times, and global warming would probably do it.

Prt of my uni studies last year was a section on climate change. There is a misconception that global warming means universal warmth when this is not the case. The uk is actually warmer in comparison to other countries at this latitude due to the gulf stream. Now assuming global warming keeps up what will happen is the ice caps melt, addiing colder what to the oceans which will causethhe gulf stream to be redirected, missing us completely. Sadly that means the Uk is one of the places that, during global warming will actually become colder instead of warmer.
