No doubt all Right Thinking People® will sniff that I am pointing out localized weather, not climate change. My response is that I'm just playing the same game that they play whenever there is a flood, hurricane, or warm spell*.
So much for summer: Snow set to blast Scotland as forecasters warn of 'coldest August spell in a century'
- Forecasters have warned that Cumbria and Yorkshire could see the coldest August spell in 95 years
- The temperature rose no higher than 8.9C in 1919 and it is expected to dip that low again later this week
- Snow is predicted in the mountains of Scotland as a stubborn band of low pressure drags air in from the north
- Experts are predicting scattered showers, cool temperatures and windy weather for the next two weeks
- MeteoGroup has said said there is 'not much to be optimistic about' as the Bank Holiday weather looks 'disappointing'
Which is another way of pointing out the difference between weather and climate: weather is a localized event unrelated to overall global climate; climate is anything that proves Global Warming™.

* My response would also be "neener neener" but that would be juvenile and disrespectful.
