Story: The weather is becoming 'predictably unpredictable'. "The rainfall this year is already 1130mm ... and that's 90% of the entire year's rainfall - just in six months." Temperature is also a factor. "[This past] summer some places only hit about 25 days where the temperature was 30 degrees or above over the three months. That's half the number of days that hit 30 degrees or higher for the same time the year before. Then you take the months of April and May. In some places THE TEMPERATURE WAS THE COLDEST ON RECORD."
