Had awful snow up here in Leeds. About 30cm fell from Friday lunch time to Saturday lunch time. Finally stopped snowing about 2pm on Saturday but now the snow on the pavements is just compacted in to solid ice, so dangerous for people getting out and about. Main roads are slushy but passable, side roads as so icy and people are getting stuck in the ice all over.

That's global warming for you.

Not only that, but a groundhog in America is being sued by a punter because the groundhog predicted an early spring. Yet the groundhog could not be more wrong as America, like Britain, still freezes in an unusually long winter.

Of course, the more sensible amongst us know that the world is getting COOLER, and has been since 1998.

So is it to be an ice age? The Polar Bears will be relieved.

It was dry as a bone for most of January and the whole of February and then the first day of rain was enough to cause widespread flooding across the country.

Temperature has been up and down from hot for the season to painfully cold.

Weather sure is weird out here in the wild west.

Aye Spud! My mum was telling me about the 1947 winter only the other day. She told me 'it was so cold that she sat in class with her coat, hat and gloves on'.

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.

Here in Vietnam we are having a daily thunderstorm during the middle of the dry season. Still I hear of drought up in the coffee areas in the mountains. I don't know if there is anything to be made of it beyond chaotic variation.

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.
