I recall attending a lecture by a famous meteorologist sometime during the
sixties. He contended that the world climate to that point in this century
was abnormal in that it was so easily predictable, whereas "normal" climate
over the centuries was much more erratic. He predicted at that time that
weather would become more normal, ie more unpredictable. Perhaps he was
close to the mark.
Vernon BC Where spring is two to three
weeks later than normal but without any high low swings to it so far. Dry
also with only 1.7 mm of rain this month.
