One thing that's very obvious about the weather in recent years is how unpredictable it's become. While there's a general sense of what we can expect as the seasons change, it's hard not to notice how much conditions change from week to week.
For instance, my area went from snowing bizarrely early to mild and without a snowflake in sight around Christmas time to blanketed in white shortly after. It's definitely caused some headaches in my family, and I don't just mean that metaphorically. Pressures changes will do that.
But the frequency of changes in weather aren't the only unpredictable part the present. As we can see from the heat waves in Europe last year, the chaos of the Australian bush fires that carried over into this year, and what's been going on around the shores of Lake Erie lately, the intensity of these weather events are just as unpredictable.
