This week is a week of weird weather. In the USA yesterday, temperatures across the country varied by an apparent 140 degrees Fahrenheit (that's
60 77.7 degrees Celsius). Nice and warm in parts of California and Florida and freezing cold across huge areas.
(Much of Oregon and most of California have had the driest year on record.)
In the UK, it's flooding. Waves of up to 10 metres are lashing the coast. According to the BBC these are being caused by " a large, deep depression in the Atlantic which was "whipping waves up" out at sea - and these were coming in as a "large swell".

While back here in Australia's summer after Australia's hottest year on record, we've had cold nights where I am and lovely weather. But we've been lucky. While we were enjoying mild sunny weather, there was a huge heat wave sweeping over the rest of the continent.
And then there is the drought - and downpours.
I figured a dose of real weirdness would help counteract the wacky weirdness I've been reporting from WUWT and Judith Curry. (Not that all the weather is weird.)
