What’s happening to the weather?

Here in Britain we like talking about the weather. Our national pastime is to moan about the weather.

I prefer not to moan because I like it that, every day here, you don’t know what you’re going to get. On the other hand, in recent years the weather has gone really weird. As my fellow blogger robertscribbler pointed out, the weird weather is probably due to what people are doing.

Today our Government’s Met (Meteorology) Office hosted a meeting about the UK’s run of what it politely calls ‘unusual’ seasons. Here’s the report.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

    Ahw we have the same over here in Holland… we always say (thought it’s not very appropriate) that Dutch weather is bi-polar. (and though knowing each year will be a bit weird we always complain as if it were the first time something like this happens)

    Wish you a lovely week (may it be as weird as over here in Holland 😉 )!
