"Climate Change" may be a more apt statement.
Normal smaller, incremental changes in temperature that were once common place are now a bit more exacerbated/extreme. So for example if one month saw a temperature variance go something like 10, 9, 10, 11 it now would be 8, 5, 9, 12 (and sometimes even more extreme)

Exactly! For the past week it has been between 0-10 celsius, but it got up to 27 for a few days.....this time of year we have pretty dramatic shifts on temperature. Absolute hell on the sinuses!
