I live in South Australia and currently we should be in autumn/winter, instead today it is metric 26 degrees (79 F). Infact all week it has been almost like spring/summer. Has there been wierd weather like this for anyone else around the world? Is this an effect of global warming?

Looking at the Bureau of Meteorology website, that seems perfectly normal, depending on where you are in SA.

BOM

Forecast for Adelaide in the next few days also seems perfectly normal.
Thursday Fine. Sunny. Min 15 Max 26
Friday Possible late shower. Min 15 Max 27
Saturday A few showers. Min 16 Max 21
Sunday Shower or two. Min 13 Max 19
Monday A few showers. Min 8 Max 18
Tuesday Shower or two. Min 9 Max 17

Seems OK here in NZ, but you Aussies have had a lot of rain in the last few months!

Well we've been having insane tornados in USA.

The weather man said it was going to storm really bad today and yet it was like 80 all day. Almost too hot to really be outside.

I hope this not off topic, but it kind of applies. Last night in Massachusetts we had a RED fog or mist that made our street lights glow red. The sky was a very red color even though it was super cloudy. It was like it was lit behind the red clouds somehow and gave a very errie RED glow to the sky. It was misting rain through a RED fog. I have never seen anything like it before

It's been hotter than hell here in Texas and we've been in a severe drought. Of course our state is huge...so some folks are getting some rain, but out west, they haven't seen rain since late August. This is usually our rainiest season and here in central Texas, we've only gotten a couple sprinkles. The heat is crazy though. This year during my kids' soccer season… we mostly wore shorts and tank tops. Last year we carried our blankets! Sunburned in February ain't normal, I don't care who ya are!

In the Central US area we've been under a constant severe weather threat going on nearly an entire week now. We've had at least one tornado warning for our area every day for the past six days and it's supposed to continue until tomorrow night. In fact there was a tornado warning for my area just about an hour ago.

What time did this happen? How long did it last, and it seemed to be coming from a specific source or was all around? Photos taken?

I knew people wouldn't believe this without pictures. I went for my camera and realized I left it at my in laws Easter Sunday. It was late, 11:30 - 12::30 ish. I am not too sure as I was working at home late to meet some deadlines. The sky was way too bright for the time of night and the cloudy, misty weather.
I actually wondered (for a second) if something really big had happened. I wet to check my trusty ATS and all seemed well... so I let it go. My husband was with me and saw it as well. I was not alone.

Here in Kentucky, we have had two weeks of terrible storms, tornados, and "historical" flooding. The governor has declared a state of emergency... they are talking about blowing up a levee in Missouri to try and save a town in Illinois as they are worried that the levee there will fail. People are evacuating and sandbagging. Neighbors on either side of me have sustained damage to their homes and barns, one home totally destroyed... its been a scary ride. Storming again now. And for the record, I have never seen lightening like we have been having... forks covering the sky in all directions, lighting the night up like day....its been nerve wracking!

You been reading to many ATS posts and seeing problems where none exist?
Adelaide is usually quite dry, South Australia is the dryest state in Australia.

How long have you lived there anyway, let us know so we can relate to your (in) experience if needed.

I'm putting together a very detailed post on global warming but from the data i've gotten so far I would say it's not global warming affecting you.

The global temperature is spiking upwards very quickly, faster than has ever happened before in history, but as of right now we are within normal ranges. The problems will arise in about 30 to 40 years.

I'm waiting on some more data but what it's looking like is that the ice sheets from Greenland have melted and cooled the oceanic currents within the top 50 meters around Briton by about a degree or two but I'm skeptical if that would affect you down in Australia.

Ah I only asked because it seemed interesting and want to know more, not because I don't believe it.

Pictures only serve to invite criticism much of the time anyway.

Pictures would be nice.
Just your (panicky) words do not really constitute some thing weird.
Relax a bit and see how things pan out, instead of posting on ATS immediately.
By all means, write down your experiences, then sleep on in and review what you have written.
Is it still relevant or just paranoia the previous day?
If relevant then hit the "reply" button, rather than in the heat of the moment and seen to be paranoid.

The weather will always appear weird as it is cyclical and human memories are very fallible.

People always remember that 1 time they went fishing and caught a bucket load, yet forget the 20 times in between they caught nothing, the longer back the story, the worse the recollection.
When they are older they will always relay the story as " I remember years ago catching buckets full of fish here all the time"
They remember that 1 good day.

weather is exactly the same, this time we have cycles(research done on a 2,000 year old boulder coral determined a 7 year interval between North Queensland wet seasons) and yet people still will say, they wet season isn't like it was when I was a kid, of course it all depends on age and memory.

so the way it generally works is that every seventh year is the really wet one and we get less rain for the next 3 years and then it gradually builds up again until we start the cycle again.

of course the weather man on TV isn't going to bring up the past only use words like "Unseasonally" to give the impression of being strange.

advice to people who like to think the weather is strange, listen carefully to the weather reports of unseasonal weather and then wait for them to tell you it has been either the hottest day sinse or coldest day in so many years, every now and then you may break a record, but normally they use words like, the coldest day in 40 years etc.......

I have lived in Adelaide my whole life and honestly this time of the year we are usually all wearing our jumpers because we are down south, it should be the beginning of winter. Yes we are usually a dry state but this weather is really warm for us. Instead today it was bloody hot, and I have had really bad allergies which I never usually get. I have had a sore throat for the past week, migraine headaches, hives (which I usually get a small amount of in the beginning of summer when rye grass is out) and there is a red sun outside now, typical of summer. It is seriously crazy.

That is interesting. Like I said, right now we have a red sun in the sky which is typical of summer. Was this at twilight or at night?

Interesting. Isn't there a hole in the ozone layer though right above Australia? I don't know if this is correct but often hear people saying that. I was thinking this could be the cause of having such a hot autumn/winter.
