Another rant, one you've heard before but oh well. What in the WORLD is with this stupid Twilight Zone weather? It's 75'F one day, then 22'F for a low the next, then 38'F for a high the next, all during a period when the normals are like 64'F for a high and 44'F for a low. Even people around here who aren't as prone to grumbling about this sort of thing as I am have been complaining about it.

And for crying out loud, spring isn't even here yet, the period when it's the absolute worst about behaving this way.

Am I the only one that wishes one could actually throw Mother Nature out of power and personally take over the weather? If I could, I would, and all week long, when the normals are 64 and 44, every single day it would be 64 and 44, on the dot, not even 1/100th of a degree different than that. Monday--64, 44. Tuesday--64, 44. Wednesday--64, 44. Thursday--64, 44. Friday--64, 44. Saturday--64, 44. Further, the first person that complained about how "boring" that was, I swear I'd slap their face into the 25th century and do so right in front of their family.

Posting this won't change anything, it's a rant that's all, or maybe it's a question--am I the only one that's really starting to get very tired of this? It is like we're in the Twilight Zone or something, and I DO NOT CARE what the meterologists say about normals just being a representation of a range of different numbers, to me they in fact are what is NORMAL for an area. The calendar and the normals for an area are GOD to me, I am that serious about it. To me it is as outrageous as anything the North Korean dictator is doing. It is that perverted and sick and twisted.

Memo to Mother Nature (not that she reads these I know)--WAKE UP!!!! Get your head out of your anus. Stop smoking the crack. Quit being a mental patient (I know, some of you think I'm one, that's fine), stop with your perversion. Just simply--STOP already.

Anyone else with me?

The highs / lows here during the first half of February, rounded to the nearest degree C. Want to guess roughly what the averages are?:

6, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 6, 7, 6, 6, 5, 6, 5.

1, 3, 3, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 4, 0, 1, 0, 1, 2

It's been one of the most consistent winters we have ever had here. Total temperature amplitude for the three months:

December: 11.2C / -0.2C (11.4C)
January: 9.8C / -2.9C (12.7C)
February: 10C / -2.0C (12.0C)

the pattern scandinavia has been stuck in for the past month is just plain horrible. squezed in between the low pressure over the uk and the russian high. constant south/southwesterly/southeasterly flow. 4/2C for hi/lo and constant overcast and pathethic drizzle. no end in sight of this complete bullcrap either. can very well continue untill may. i'd take anything instead of this crap.

This pattern gives nearly nil precipitation along the Norwegian coast from about 62 N and northwards, and frequent clear skies. 7 mm precipitation here last month. January and February put together: 11.6 mm recorded at Trondheim-Værnes! It is now warning for wildfire risk here again...
This weather pattern is not that unusual. However, the fact that it stays so consistent like this for more than Two Months is extremely rare, if at all happened in recorded history before.

Great weather here for once, absolutely no fog, and constant sub-freezing dewpoints, which is a rare treat in december. Lots of sunshine too.
