Discuss the exciting weather here!

Today in London, it reckons it's 10 degrees. It's cloudy and keeps raining. Probably describes all other days in the UK as well.

From the Environmental protection Agency of the U.S. Government:

"Over the past 50 years, temperatures across Alaska increased by an average of 3.4°F. Winter warming was even greater, rising by an average of 6.3°F. The rate of warming in Alaska was twice the national average over that same period of time. Average annual temperatures in Alaska are projected to increase an additional 3.5 to 7°F by the middle of this century."

As anyone who lives in Alaska knows, the past decade has seen the permafrost all over the state thaw out for the first time in recorded human history of the region, causing longstanding forest and roads to collapse, and a massive infestation and shifting of new and foreign flora and fauna. Ask any Alaskan and they'll tell you, the weather there clearly ain't what it used to be.

Quite overcast and cool here in NYC today. The last few months since the hurricane have been freakishly unpredicable here. One day it feels as if summer has arrived, let alone spring, and the next day it feels like winter again.

In the first decade since 2000, the 49th state cooled 2.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

But really I just like looking at extreme weather here, not the whole ice age debate again.

I would love to have you explain your cooling theory face to face to the people I know who live in the actual reality of Alaska. Nowhere else are these matters as in-your-face and utterly incontrovertible; the state has dramatically changed.

But OK, we can agree that that grass is actually pink, not green, and then talk about the very cold weather today in Alaska. :teehee:

EDIT: And I do agree with you that it is better not to sidetrack the innocuous weather thread into a volatile debate. I just thought you were hinting at your pet theory with your selection of today's cold weather in Alaska.

Reckons it's 13 degrees. I haven't been out much today coz I was doing laundry and trying to rest for my cold, but it's been less wet today. Though it's been really cold. I haven't taken my coat off all day because nowhere is warm. I've been sitting shivering all day and my teeth chatter when I'm walking around :(

Today's weather gets a freezing/10.

I don't know what they call them in Oz or the UK, but it sounds as though you should invest in what we call thermals, and wear them under a t-shirt, fleece, and jacket/coat. Layering is the way to go for folks who get cold easily.

The secret is layers , there are lots of places online this is a video I found if going to real winter conditions, but maybe a bit extreme for London, but some may be useful:

No warm layer there to hold in the heat. You need a fleece or sweater/jumper on top of the shirt and under the coat or jacket.

Just any kind of jumper? And I dunno what fleece is :( I've been looking for scarves as well, but can only find these thin useless ones which are apparently for fashionable purposes and I want a nice warm one. Never worn a scarf before, never had to worry about layering... This is all so confusing :'(

Today is a decent day temperature wise at 16 degrees celsuis with 49% humidity, it is also cloudy enough to not see the sun. However be careful with the winds out there, going at a solid 26 km/h in the northwestern direction with wind gusts going up to 37 km/h! UV and air quality risks are low, but pollen levels are pretty high, so all allergic people out there be careful. The wind will continue like this for the rest of the day, with temperatures remaining in the teens. Expect it to be in the single digits tonight.

In the UK this year May is like March, whilst March was almost like January and April like February, more or less. This is based on how it feels.

Scarves are dumb. If it's cold enough to need a scarf just wear a balaclava or some other variant of ski mask that covers your neck and face.

In the sense of dealing with colder weather I do agree with you that they are pretty dumb, but still they could be used as a fashion accessory, that's what I do during winter at least.

UK look ahead

One model, below for southern England mainly

This look ahead looks at the next week, temps steady for next week, some rain in early part of week but fair conditions after that

Tomorrow, little bit of rain south coast but generally dry cloudy

Monday some rain and bright spells mixed

Tuesday should get brighter

Wednesday on -fair and dry and sunny up to 20 degrees C

Thurs Fri Dry sunny spells

next Sat dry cloudy some sunny spells

next Sun dry

Mon 27 May mainly dry
28 May and 29 May 30 May all dry

3-28 May-very little rain at all
29- May - 2 June- very little rain

Another model shows showers for a week today but this forecaster thinks the one above more likely

I hesitate to disagree with a Canadian about dealing with cold weather, but when the temperature really drops it is amazing how much a difference a scarf makes in keeping your whole body warm. Just wrapping up the neck makes a tremendous difference in keeping the heat in. Most people swear by them.

Maybe PA denigrates scarves because he's used to temperatures dipping into the teens (F) and so thinks in terms of having to go nuclear to deal with the cold?
