In Sydney, it seems like we're getting warmer and drier. I would wish the drying pattern would continue (not the biggest fan of summers getting hot). Sure, it's annoying to see no rain for 3 months straight. But it can be exciting, as you're eagerly waiting for that heavy rain day.

Please stick to realistic hopes - For instance, if you're in Los Angeles don't be wishing for snowy winters.

Longer Autumn/Longer Spring and the climate would be perfect for me Ethereal ,in other words 4 perfect seasons (with a slightly more defined winter/summer ) - winter (dull and 10c) steals a month from both spring and autumn in S/England

I would like most months to be 2-3 colder, especially the winter months. A bit more rain and snow would be fine as well.

Of course it's the contrary that's happening.

1) Colder, snowier and frostier winters.

2) Warmer, drier and, most particularly, sunnier summers with more heatwaves and droughts

3) Colder crisper autumns with more frost and sun.

4) Fewer rain days, more heavy convective downpours and less frontal rain/drizzle.

5) Less E/SE winds, preferably none at all, which would go a long way to achieving 1) to 4)


All changes since the start of the century have brought precisely the opposite of everything outlined above.

Milder winters. I’d gladly take a small, 5 degree (2.8C) increase in our averages and extremes. That may not seem significant, but for a climate like NYC, with winters that are cold, but barely so, it’d make a big difference.

I want our winters back like we had in the 70's and 80's. I want more rain in the summer with more Cat 1 hurricanes. We are so much warmer and drier now compared to 35 years ago.

In New England, I wish every day in the winter felt like the pacific northwest; no biting wind chills; I don't mind winter and snowfall- I just wish it was always 25-35 degrees without any wind chill temps that make it feel any colder. Also once March rolls around, and it hits 55-60 degrees, the mercury can't dip below that reading again until after the spring and summer are over. I despise when it gets warm and then becomes brutally cold,etc... again in the months of March, April, and May. Experience has been the same in the midwest and mid-atlantic, but regardless, I HATE it.

Colder winters. A good 5-10 F / 3-6 C drop in December, January, and February would do wonders for our climate.

Colder, MUCH snowier Decembers. I hate Decembers that just feel like extended Novembers.

Fewer long dry spells. I hate it when it goes without rain for 2+ weeks.

Less summer seasonal lag. Late Septembers / early Octobers that feel like fall.
