This may really seem more confusing and alarming.

Well, terrible floods have recently occurred in Pakistan and now there areover than a one million homeless human being :eek:

Tommorrow in Lebanon, we will have the highest temperature rise in history where temperature will reach somewhere between 45 and 50 C...
:yik: and people are advised to not leave their houses if there is nothing necessary


So, how is it going over your area...

Anything weird???

We have lots of rain.

...Oh wait, that's normal for Britain. Silly me. D:

But yeah, we have lots of rain forecast. :p

Pakistan has been the first victim of terrible rains...and the results were terrible...

Who knows where all this evaporated water fall and the damage they might do...

I think the worst we've had is something like 6 inches of rain in certain areas. Something like that.

Summer in the UK has been pretty much non-existent due to unusual amounts of rain (but not alot of flooding as with previous years).

I'm also finding it remarkably cold for August.

Just today we had a rediculously windy and wet storm that was soooo loud and huge and soo osudden, I thought we would get a tornado or some sort of flood. Definately tropical type storm. In Ontario!!! D:

I manage to move away from anywhere with rain :L It's just been hot here, hot and dry. There were fires up north and to the west that made the skies crummy and there have been some fires out here, but nothing much beyond that.

We've had an unusually hot and dry summer. Well we've had a lot of dry summers in the last 10 years but this one is hotter than most. Nearly every day for the last 2 months has been 90 to 100 degrees. It seems like it's always oppressively bright and hot... not even many clouds to give some temporary relief.

I don't think what happened last winter will happen again that often. Very rare for it to happen.

You've had flooding in Deal, for one.

Okay Richard think about it, you live near-ish me. I live in a valley surrounded by fields and next to the River Tyne, the water runs off the fields and into the river, but when it rains the river rises, and half the village is seperated because the bridge and lower half of the village gets flooded, being the same level as the river bank. The Romans probably wernt expecting it when they chose to build it ;)

@Dan - Maybe not but still, i think it might.

Well 2006-7 summers were stupidly hot for the UK but this summer and last summer have been rain and cloud non stop.

Luckily Poland and Shanghai were super hot so I can't complain the summer has been fantastic.

I can vouch for Hayley here - in my area, the same usually happens as it does in the past winters - it's either better or worse though.

Exactly the same thing here.
This summer has been pretty crazy so far too -- heat weaves, and then cold and loads of rain. We had a serious flood this year, even the capital was at risk at one point. Past winter was very cold also, with loads of snow -- and very sudden. There have been some crazy storms with strong winds and loads of rain. Again, very sudden ones.

As much as it has been very cold or very hot on many occasions before, there's definitely a change -- any weather changes seem very sudden and rapid...

I remember that we used to have lots of snow here around November/December when I was a kid. Now there's a lot less snow and it usually comes down at some point between January and March. The summers have also become a lot hotter during the last few years (almost every year there is a new heat record for Germany).

It's quite ridiculous where I come from.
Sometimes, the winters are epic. It'll snow one day and turn entirely to ice overnight.
Other winters are less drastic.

Yes.
I think one of the crucial reasons is the pollution.

This last winter, it was much, much worse than the past year. Gas reserves running out, etc etc. Hell, my school called a total of about 5 snow days. My school is known for not closing that much because of snow.

Same! And sometimes we have light snow and sometimes extremly heavy school-closing, isolating, flooding, road-blocking snow :p

My school calls in a snow day when there's only a light frost.
Then when it comes to blizzards, school is in. :rolleyes:

Mine will only close if there's a blizzard. And walking to school while slipping over everywhere on black-ice covered pavements is really not fun. I had some rather big bruises by the end of it.

Back in '05 I came to London at around this time of summer. Most of the time it was nice weather. Quite a bit of cold though. This year, it's been very extreme: one day it's hot enough to fry an egg on a car hood, or its raining and/or freezing!

In Belfast, it's ben getting colder; the past two-three years, we've been getting more snow than we used to. We get it in January-February (luckily. I love snow :D)

Here in Chicago the weather has been rather unusual in the past couple of years. Nothing is all that surprising... it's The Windy City after all, but the winters are getting incredibly short and the summers hotter.

Also, there was a tornado in the past month which wrecked the area were I live :eek: I made a thread about it.

It's been humid humid humid for 2 months now. I am sick of it. And always near 90 degrees and it never changes. Fortunately it now gets dark around 745 PM, so something has got to give.
