Human beings have too short of a memory and are ineffective at remembering the weather. Its all about the data.

If the data can show a statisticaly significant different weather pattern (a t-test with a p value less than 0.05) then it is warrented to investigate. Even this statistical test is a gross simplistic explanation of what is going on. Variables in weather are too difficult to predict. For the most part the accuracy of a 5 day forecast tends to be statically different from the actual weather that occurred.

So its hard to say this weather is different from any other weather that has ever occurred in the past.

Fairly typical spring up here. The last snowfall was in the first week of April, as it has been every year for as long as I can remember. We've had a couple thunderstorms thus far. Had a couple days over 80, but mostly in the 60s. It's rained nearly every day in April. Yeah, that's an Ohio spring. Tornado season should be starting any time now.

According to the NWS, this is one of the coldest April's we have ever had in southern Idaho. The closest we came to 70 degrees was on April 1st, when we hit 68. Been way below normal all month.

The same in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Not much Summer last year.

We have California Brown Pelicans on our beaches since SoCal got too warm.

We are basically just north of the cascades, west of the rockies.
This immediate area has no real mountains, its more flat, with small hills, sandy, dusty, and literally classified as a desert.


Its hot as hell here in the summer.
We get broiling sun, day after day, for weeks on end in the summer, and temps average 110 to 120 F.
We pray for rain by July, and everything is just brown, and the dust is everywhere.

We have a LOT of cactusses here, and tumble weeds blow down the roads, and sure scratch the paint on the car.

Same as The Dalles. I was in Hood River (green & lush) and asked a park employee what was further East (The Dalles). He described an almost instant change from rain forest to high desert. Microclimes had me quite confused the first year here.
