Permanent changes: colder winters, at least 3C below average.

This year: I wish one of the autumn months was well below normal (like March 2013 or December 2010). It happened long time ago.

I'd like to have another 2 - 3 feet of snow... a strong solid blizzard this winter!

Permanently: more snow in winter, more annual precipitation and colder summers and winters

This/next year: at least a repeat of the winter of 2012/2013, perhaps a bit colder and a below average summer.

A tropical storm with heavy rain, changing color leaves in the fall (and cold weather) along with freezing temperatures and snow in the winter.

I'd like to see winters that are about 5F colder, with about 4 times the snow we get, more sunshine, and more thunderstorms. In terms of short-term events, it would be amazing to see a January 1950 repeat, with blizzards and weeks of below-freezing temperatures. It would shut down the city and Elliott Bay would start to freeze over. :O

Actual fall weather and fall colours. I don't even care if it doesn't snow, I'd rather have an orange Halloween than a white Christmas.

I'd like to see average maximum temps return to those of the 1930's which were warmer summers and colder winters. Of course those were drier times which meant that dew points were lower, and nightly minimums reflected that. We might have had many more 100 degree days then, but temps cooled off more at night. Plus much less of a urban heat island.

For Nice:

1. More variable winters. Eg:

*Huge snowfall followed by a brief period of cold, sunny days
*Then very mild periods
etc.

A winter month looking like this:

5/14 sun
0/7 heavy snow
-3/4 sun
-2/6 sun
0/8 sun
4/16 sun
7/22 sun
12/23 sun
11/24 sun
8/20 sun
0/12 cold front with overnight snow
-2/2 heavy snow
-4/4 sun
-1/9 sun

etc.

instead of the usual uber boring:

5/13 sun
5/13 cloudy
5/13 sun
5/13 cloudy
5/13 sun
5/9 rain wow a cool day
5/13 sun
5/13 cloudy
6/15 sun wow a mild day
5/13 cloudy
5/13 sun
5/13 cloudy





2. Warmer springs and especially more temp spikes

We have a 17C average high in April yet temps rarely exceeding 20C before May (Paris has a much higher chance of early 25C+ temps than here)



3. Summers are great but more T-storms would be perfect as well as the occasional scorching hot day

Our hottest temp for the whole summer of 2013 was a meagre 31C despite average highs of 28C...
