On 21st March, NOAA put out their Spring Weather Outlook, which forecast “above-average temperatures across much of the continental United States”.
And the outcome? The Spring was the coldest since 1996, and nearly half a degree colder than the 20thC average.
Perhaps they have started using the Met’s models!

Have these idiots really got nothing better to do? The weather in recent years has simply returned to what was normal in the 20thC, as the Central England Temperature series shows.
The only thing that has been unusual is the few years of warmer than usual weather seen at the turn of the century.

A change to unseasonable warmth is expected to begin this weekend and continue through much of next week for eastern Europe.
A strong upper-level low pressure dropping southward into Spain will force a ridge of high pressure to build over eastern Europe.
The upper-level low will sit and spin over Spain and France for much of the week allowing the ridge to strengthen and produce a heat wave for parts of southeast Europe.
From the GWPF: Met Office To Hold Crisis Summit On Epic Forecast Failures
The Met Office’s temperature forecasts issued in 12 out of the last 13 years have been too warm. None of the forecasts issued ended up too cold. That makes the errors systemic and significant.

The most massive volcanic eruption of the 20th century came during June 1912 in Alaska, explosive, heard 1,500 miles away. A good deal of the mountain vanished.
Mt Katmai is one of several peaks making up the Novarupta.
Murray Salby's Hamberg Lecture has been posted on youtube by Sebastian Lüning. H/T Pierre Gosselin.
Of great importance is Salby's finding that in large part, CO2 is controlled by global temperature, rather than the other way round as the warmists claim. Regulars might recall the discussions we've had on this issue before. here and here. The final ten minutes of the presentation are devastating to the warmist perversion of climate science.
As northward onset of the rainy Summer Monsoon proceeded nearly on schedule, pre-season thunderstorms have struck unusually far to the north and west this week on the Indian Subcontinent.
Strong thunderstorms swept over parts of northwestern India and Pakistan on Tuesday, whipping up powerful winds and dust storms while also unleashing blinding downpours, but the storm also gave welcome cooling rain following weeks of sweltering heat.
