You won't read about this at WUWT.
The UK is suffering historic floods with excessive rainfall - the UK Met reported 372.2 mm (14.6") over two months and it keeps on pouring down.
Whether weather is bad is relative to what is expected. On Cape York there was 1.2 metres (47.2") of rain in just seven days. That's wet!
Here in Melbourne we've had the most catastrophic fire conditions since 2009. That's only four years ago and the 2009 conditions would have been the worst on record. We've had similar hot weather (40 degrees plus) for extended periods with little rain. At least
21 34 homes have been destroyed by fire in the past day or so, most of them on the outskirst of Melbourne - but there are likely to be lots more. We won't know until people can get into the area to check.
Thought it was worth a sanity check, given all that WUWT is reporting is the extent of snow in the USA, while ignoring the unusual warm weather in Alaska.
