Weird weather this year

Seems like the weather, unlike what is happening elsewhere, is pretty weird this year. We have had 70 degree winters and snow in April. Now, when it is 42 degree outside, the heat is on right now, they are predicting 90 degrees weather in 3 day?? This in Pennsylvania and I know it is happening all over the country. I do not relish traveling in these temperature extremes as we all know they can cause bad storms. Safe travels everyone.

Hi: cpaharley2008... WELCOME to "Global Warming". Contrary to some... it is real, and a consequence of it is more severe weather events. Colder colds, hotter hots, stronger lightning strikes and more tornadoes and hurricanes!!! We shouldn't have upset "Mother" nature's balance. Alf

Global changes

Hi Alf
Thank you for your comment on global warming. You are exactly right and anyone who cannot agree with this has a brain no larger than that of a garter snake. I listened to Dr Paul Erlich at Iowa State the morning of the first earth day 47 years ago his message then was to get environmentally responsible on a local basis to affect changes globally. A precious few took it to heart. Wish we were having brunch at Betty's and later lounging in the shade in a comfortable chair, telling lies.

Portland, Oregon yesterday afternoon. That's hail! We don't typically get hail... just a light scattering a couple of times a year. Yesterday was weird. Thunder boomers that shook my entire house and scared the bajeezes out of me. Glad I don't have any tall trees around the house and all the technology is protected.

We've been getting weird weather patterns too, but for a long as I can remember though. The earth is warming, we are going to need to adapt to it.

I love driving in stormy weather, enjoying the comfort of being snug in my cozy vehicle.

Two weeks ago we had 4" of snow and 25 deg F . Last week we woke up to temps in the low 30's . Today they are predicting highs in the 80's ( Too HOT for my liking) Next week heavy rains and hail with temps in the 30's and 40's. . Winter is becoming our best season , cause spring and fall has almost disappeared.

Hi: Iowa Dave... For now we only have two seasons in Ontario. Winter and Construction!!! Not to much of the former and too much of the later. Alf

While I believe the climate is changing, hurricane and tornado frequency is actually down. Surely man has had an impact on climate, but not in severe storms (unless experts want to claim the decrease)

The local meteorological from the University of Minnesota says the number of storms has declined but the severity of the storms has notably increased. The period of ice cover on Northern lakes has also declined by 30 to 45 days per anum . Normal ice out in my area was approx the 15th to the 20th of April now ice out is occurring in March. Where some may see that as a good thing in reality it has a negative effect on the lakes. Lakes that seldom turned green in the summer are now to where you can't swim in the lake during parts of the summer and the fish are dieing .

Weird weather indeed - sunburn last week and not much above freezing today. And Saskatoon apparently is under a tornado watch. Very weird for May!!
