That would be global warming.....
Oh wait a minute.
It cant be climate change, we have had climate change since the earth came into existence, long before "life" let alone humans.
I remember that in the 60's we were entering a mini "Ice Age".
One thing you can rely on the meteorologists for.... A tendency to exaggerate.edit on 201311America/Chicago11pm11pmSat, 30 Nov 2013 18:25:41 -06001113 by OneManArmy because: (no reason given)
I think definitions have changed a lot more than the climate has.
Richard Lindzen, a former meteorologist at MIT, in his first presentation as the newest distinguished fellow at the libertarian think tank Cato Institute, tore into global warming alarmists.
Scientists, instead of adhering to the old model of science and objectivity, were “eager participants” in the global warming hoopla. This is “an infiltration that gets too little attention” in today’s society. For example, before global warming exploded onto the scene, Lindzen said, “no one at MIT called themselves climate scientists.” They were oceanographers and meteorologists by trade, but “only when funding came did we become climate scientists.”
Lindzen pulled no punches and blasted global warming scientists’ fixed models, where they purposefully adjusted their models to fit their political views because their models are “failing.” One such model showed that solar output was 20-30% less today than in past years, which meant that eventually the earth’s oceans would freeze. That has not happened because “temperatures were pretty much what they are today.” All of these adjusted models conform to the politics of the issue. In his own words, Lindzen said, “when you know there is a need for a political answer…people will try to meet that need.”
If normal weather is so rare it's thread worthy...
You might be experiencing climate change.

Or they might just actually be superstorms happening more frequently. Nah couldn't be that cuz Al Gore, NWO and taxes, amirite?
That cold blast down here was positively refreshing! I hope it's a long, cold winter. Wait, that sounds like I'm hoping for other people's frozen, snowy misery. What I mean to say is I hope it's a chilly one for us in Florida. Most of the year is an insufferable sauna down here, I'll gladly take many more days in the 50's as a reward for being in a state of perma-sweating the majority of the year
As a Scottish man.....What is this strange land you talk off ?
Winter in the penis-shaped state otherwise known as Florida is typically warm, in the 70's (21*C - 26*C) That's probably pretty toasty to you Scots, eh? It does get chilly, I swear. One or two days a year, anyway. Our Thanksgiving cold snap here in the Tampa area I believe maxed out at 56*F/13*C for the high temperature, the morning low was about 39*F/4*C. Normally, our coldest month is January, with highs in the 60's (15*C - 20*C) And back in 1989 it really DID get cold enough to snow this far south (actually, as far south as 50 miles further than here. A light dusting, but it was snow, I watched it accumulate on roofs Our spring & summer high temps are typically between 85*F & 95*F (29*C to 35*C) 10 months of that crap, and a few of us welcome seeing our breath hang in the air on exhale.

Considering we've been able to track and measure storms worldwide for decades now, I'd say we can accurately determine upward and downward trends.

This thread title is misleading. Low max temperature is different from record lows set.
