Default Re: What is happening

Temperatures are very variable here too, last year for example, the maximum temperature on Midsummer's Eve was only a couple of degrees C above that on the previous Christmas Eve (11 C and 9 C respectively). The main difference was the amount of daylight, at 60 N there's 19 hours of daylight at midsummer and, conversely, about the same amount of darkness at Christmas. No snow in December, combined with a low cloud cover, looks at midday a lot like Mordor in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies.
