Here in Florida we had 80 degree weather since chistmas. We usually get some kind of 40degree cold that lingers for a week or so but instead we had 3 cold days this winter. But hey its florida

The US has skipped winter this year and jumped into summer. Maybe that saying "christmas in july" might have some truth to it

I dont care why its strange but, as long as it keeps staying 75 actually going to be 85 today in Rhode Island im happy! I usually am in Miami this week for the winter music conference. Who needs Miami when its 80's here. BUt on a serious note. The jet streamed moved thats why the weather is so off. Its keeping the cold air locked out throught out most of the country. The storms are more intense like they usually are in augusts months, becuz the humidity has already really begun. i think that is the reason imo.

there is a article that was written in 2008 in USA TODAY talking about how the jet stream was moving north. They predicted the rain would decrease and hurricains would be more in stense ect. USATODAY JET STREAM MOVING 2008
Just my two cents... if you research on line you can see pictures of the jet stream and over the past say 30 years it has moved alot.

maybe the weather is not off cycle.

maybe the humans are off cycle.

on the west coast of Australia
summer started strangely cold and wet
but things seem to be pretty normal now

which just makes this whole thing stranger...
why are things normal here, hot in america, and cold in europe?
if it was global warming it would surely affect us all at least similarly
and it can't have been an axial tilt because quite apart from it still not explaining the situation
i'm pretty sure we would have noticed , you know?

for now
i am forced to the uneasy conclusion that it's just the weather
and the weather is as the weather does.
if these trends continue... well then i guess we really have something to talk about

Here in the Northwest UK, we don't like to spook the weather.....

I will try to describe the day recent weather without cursing us.

We are very comfortable in t-shirts and shorts. It is advisable to wear sunglasses. No need to wipe feet when coming indoors. The garden may need watering though due to the hosepipe ban this will not be possible for some. (use washing up water for your hanging baskets ect).

Difficult to know what to plant out though because the frost could be back at any time!

Well - I am the 3rd person from Washington state in this thread (as far as I can tell) and I am quite irritated that I woke up this morning to a couple of inches of snow on the ground. Again. This March I have seen several snow days and the winter was one of the colder ones I remember - so cold that we are finally getting some federal financial help for all of the damage it caused. Now I'm not going to say that the weather is unusual as I have pictures going back several years of snow covering our spring bulbs that are starting to bloom, but if you were in my shoes (with thick socks and a heavy winter coat on) - you would be sick of the frikken cold and wish for the "unseasonably warm" weather that you all are complaining about.

Just sayin'.

Here in Philadelphia we've had above average temps. Today we have a forecast of 80degrees.
If our winter was mild and our spring is warm I have a feeling our Summer will be somewhat cool. Its seems as if the seasons are being pushed up into the next season meaning Summer will be below average temps.

The weatherman said this morning that the last 2 days have been warmer than any other in recorded history here in Michigan. They say this will probably be the warmest March ever.

Living here all my life, I'm not complaining one bit. I am also not putting away the snow blower either!:

I live in quebec canada, and usualy around this time of the year we receive our last snowstorm or the snow start to melt at the end of this month sometimes later like last year.

But this year we already have no snow !

It all melted we had huge snowstorm one week and then the other week MELTED.

it is really warm for this time of the year

and it seems to me like the winter was 3.5 months long maybe less.

also it rained all winter or almost we had above 0 celcius temperature during the winter. that is very rare sometimes you could get one or 2 days above 0 during the winter but this winter it was all winter long.

one week we would receive 5' snow and the next week rain and the snow is gone.

also last week we had rain during all week. crazy, never seen before for this time of the year.

I can also testify to that. I also live in Southern California, near Ontario, in the Valley. This weather has just been extremely weird. It has hardly rained at all this year, way below average in my opinion - at least for my area. It's also been a mixture of both freakishly cold and rather warm when it shouldn't be.

I thought it was just this crazy California weather, but once I heard reports of it happening in other places, I dunno, it kinda makes me feel that.. well, most can guess what I'm going to say next

Thats because it is, And here is my Theory as to why this is happening!
Over the last 2-3 years we have seen some major Earthquakes that have shifted the Earth on its axis That have lead to shorter days, Everything that we see on this planet is effected bye everything else, disrupting the rotation of the Earth (Even in the slightest way) could change everything we know about our Seasons.

I think this is the reasons for our Planets past Ice ages & Periods of Tropical temps, But this is just a Theory of mine.....

Eastern Kentucky here...
It is Hot! We got bombarded by tornados at the first of March... And then 6 inches if snow and for the past week Summer temps...

I got a sun burn... First ever in march... And i work outdoors so i know what the weather is like typically...

The sun for the past week feels like it is searing my skin!

Bloody miserable... But oh well SPF it and press on.

for the rest of you it seems to be, maybe.

here in vancouver it's seriously so stagnant, it feels like it never stops raining, then when it does, it's cloudy, we get maybe 2-3 sunny days every 2-3 weeks sometimes. and it's always the same temperature.

it's typical and right where it should be I think. we do live in a temperate rainforest. rain is expected.
it's just sooooooo boring, I want thunder and lightning.

Yes, I completely agree. I live in Washington state. We had a colder and wetter spring that usual. Summer never really got warm. All of the crops were about three weeks late. Some crops had terrible yeilds do to the mild summer. Fall was dry and warm. Winter never really happened. It was also warm and dry. The last few weeks it has been wet and today It SNOWED!

It's like the whole year has been off by one and a half or two months. I am really beginning to wonder what is in store for us this summer. Because our winter was so mild, I am expecting that the bugs will be terrible due to not getting killed off my the cold. Pretty strange and yes, very unsettling. Something is not right with the weather. But the seasons? Yes. It is very alarming.

I love ATS!!!

Best post of all time! ♥

But, anyways.

Does sound right...

Let me tell ya this!

In Michigan here...
We had only 21" of snow this year.
We should have about 44" of snow in a year.
Guess not eh'?
I am guesing we will have an EARLY Fall/Winter?

I can see a cold summer maybe... It's possible as a donkey jumping off a car in my House.

It's been a 5th straight day in Michigan w/ 80+ degrees temp.. Wild eh?

Must be a cold summer comin' up for all us.

Time to bring out the Florida Winter Jackets!

I'm in Southern Ontario (Canada) but I know exactly how you feel about planting. While the OP mentioned everyone going around like everything is all cool, I can tell you anyone who gardens is going crazy at the moment. I've planted a third of my seeds that can be direct sown, just because I would hate to miss out on the chance to have such a long growing season. I know every seasoned gardener says good things come to those who wait, but I just couldn't take it any more. Every single instinct in my mind was screaming "Plant! Plant now!!" When it comes down to it I would hate holding off and getting no frost a lot more than having to buy some more seeds.

When it comes to weather I usually have good instincts. As, I believe, anyone who spends a majority of their time outdoors can (especially those who work with plants). I'm still pretty young, so I only have a decade of experience with this stuff, but I was wondering what the seasoned veterans were feeling this year: What are your instincts telling you to do? Are they overwhelming your common sense too? Or have you been burned before by a sudden frost on a year like this one?

Wow...was just discussing the crazy weather in another post yesterday. Seems people from all over are saying the same thing "crazy weather." What seems strange to me is there is very little mention of it on the news.

I know some will say "that's because there is nothing strange about it." I really have to disagree though. It feels all wrong to me.
