I don’t know if others have noticed but there seems to be a lot of strange weather patterns of recent years and it seems to be getting more frequent. I am creating this thread as a kind of catalogue and discussion page for this. If you have noticed anything unusual along these lines, in your neck of the woods, I’d like to hear it.
@trek79, i’m from chicago but was there only for a month this winter, but for that month it was in the 50s for a lot of the time in January… very unusual since its usually in like the 20s or below at that time of the year. Also practically no snowfall, feel like the winters have gotten warmer last few years in Chicagoland.
We had a heatwave all across Australia last week, culminating in a Cyclone of Western Australia, that heatwave broke, so we thought, then out of the blue we get today.
Seems like it took about a couple of weeks… maybe even a month.. longer than usual for the vegetation to die here in Chicago leading up to the Winter.
Past 2 years it has snowed in october here in new jersey, destroying a lot of trees that still had their leaves. To my memory it has not dropped below 15 degrees Fahrenheit this winter, which is pretty unusual. It has also been recorded by BBC that 2012 is in the top 10 of warmest years since they began recording the weather around the 1880s.
I know talking about the weather is the biggest cliché smalltalk topic ever, I’m a bit ashamed of myself for that, but I never really took notice of the weather before. Do you think that it may be just suggestion of the media (and environmental lobbying), about climate change and global warming, that is causing us to notice these little oddities? I haven’t lived long enough to really judge if this is just a typical cycle or if there is more to it.
