I noticed the seasons these days seem to be out of whack, somewhat.

Sometimes it seems like there is more summer or winter then usual and spring or fall become less then usual.

Our winter has been erratice as always. It's been snowing for the last two days and last week we were outside in t-shirts. March and April can be the worst for snow storms. I doubt I'll even see anything like the blizzard of '93 again when we got 36" of snow. We were snowed in for a week without electricity, but it was the most fun I'd ever had with my clothes on. :D

It's been like this in the UK too. We've been in a horribly prolonged winter where it's been sub zero temperatures since October which is really unusual. It's been snowing on and off for 3 months as well.
This time last year it was really warm and dry, now it's the complete opposite and it's set to continue into next week too. :(

I collect my own rainwater water supply, for the last 4years or so we generally run out of water at about this time because the weather has settled into a pattern of been bone dry from xmas to about April or May. For the last three years the drought breaks and then it doesn't stop raining again until the drought begins again in December.

That is a totally new weather pattern to anything anyone can remember in Ireland.

Are you saying the drought from Dec. to April is new?

The consistent pattern of drought in the spring is new. The wet summers come and go, but the last few years have been particularly bad.

Before this new pattern we had about 10years without any significant difference between summer and winter, which again was not remembered by any local people.

Nothing dramatic enough to be certain, overall, but a few items did stand out.

I noticed a change in the bird migrations this year. Birds arriving earlier than expected, by months, not weeks. Others hanging around longer than I expected. That is a bit weird, and noticeable.

The trees, I've written some about this, but to see blooms on the trees in early February, with no real extended warmth, that's a bit odd. I've speculated that they may be retaining a recent memory, because the earlier it warms up over time, they may sense this and be responding more generally, as opposed to to individual seasonal warmth. Not all the trees are doing this, however. It's unclear why some are, but perhaps not native. This is just a theory of my own, however. It's a useful ability in a fast changing environment, and no doubt they've experienced this before in their genetic past.

The bugs, nothing unusual. The amphibians are just glad the drought seems to be over in Coastal Carolina.

The fish, I don't fish, but perhaps someone else does.

Spiders, saw very few in the house this winter, don't know why. That's unusual, but unclear if unprecedented, given I don't remember this too well for many years past. Could be the landscapers spraying more. Some people hate spiders. I think they're pretty neat, but not in my house! A few get rescued and thrown out the door, when I'm feeling merciful.

Crickets, I miss, but that's normal for winter.

Let's see, what else. I've been dreaming about hail in Texas, Western Arkansas, and Eastern Oklahoma, but what's special about that?

This may be why our weather patterns are so messed up.

but that doesn't explain why the weather is crazy in the southern hemisphere.

The reason for this post is because of what I've seen in local weather patterns here in the pacific northwest of the USA.  Ever since I was a child when the morning weather report on TV showed a satelite image of weather the cloud patterns always....always blew down from Alaska and British Columbia, Canada then would kind of reach Portland and swirl back up to Seattle in a circular pattern.  For the past 2 years however I notice that now the clouds seem to be pushed up from California.  The area of the map that has always been shown is just the state of Washington, the north part of Oregon and the southern part of British Columbia and the pacific ocean next to Washington so I realy can't tell exactly what's going on but it is glaringly obvious that wind patterns have significantly changed and yet no mention of this is ever made by the local meteorologists.

Do any of you see this same type of thing happening in the sattelite views on your local weather reports?

Yeah, apparently our solar maximum never happened for this cycle, and by all appearances we are heading into another Maunder Minimum.

Yet the current temperatures (global mean) is at its highest for at least 1000years.
Its not helpful to confuse local Northern Atlantic weather with global climate.

What we are experiencing is changes to the prevailing regional weather patterns across the globe.
