    LOLROTF at your remark about the “re-education camp for Darren Brett.” Too true!

    Anoter 30yrs of weather like that & you can say the climate has changed

    The extreme weather data shows pretty conclusively that extreme weather has been getting less extreme. Recent record lows in tornado strength and numbers, similar lows in cyclone energy and numbers. Very little change in rainfall either totals or extremes.

    All in all if this is caused by CO2 you’d say more CO2 would be a good thing. Sadly it’s probably due to solar influences rather than CO2, which we can’t do much about.

    Speaking of solar influences, the waves of hot and cold sweeping the UK lately have been fun. I like reading the Daily Express website each day (it’s a fine circus!) and the lurid TERRIBLE HEAT then SNOMAGEDDON stories every other week are glorious. Today is typical:

    UK weather: Britain set for HOTTEST spring in 100 years as warm plume to sizzle April

    What no one is bothering to look at is the sinuous Rossby wave loops causing these alternating heat and cold events. Which is just what was happening in 2010, during the last solar minimum. Prof. Mike Lockwood at Reading linked it to low solar activity.

    We’re back in the same conditions of low solar activity and we’ve got the same jet stream linked weather patterns. I wonder if the BBC will have an article about this like last time?

    Working on the ‘law of averages’ I suspect spring/summer will be pretty unmemorable as far as heat goes. If it were like last summer, the year as a whole would smash the hottest year by some margin, so I’d bet against it. But who knows…..that’s the beauty of random weather, there are no real limits.

      “…there are no real limits…”

      Except that, always, it quickly goes back to being unexceptional!

      The sun is spotless again. There is a difference among the various statistical methods of forecasting the time when it will really wake up. The standard curves method says not yet. The longer the wait, the more likely (again, statistically) that Cycle 25 will be weak.

    What are the scientific definitions of “extreme” and “severe” weather? They need to be defined and not just thrown around.
