Droughts + Floods = climate change?

Raining in London

An inch of rain fell in my home town today, the sea whipped into a ferment by 60mph winds. There are multiple flood warnings yet we are still in a serious drought. The newspapers are scratching their heads.

Is this a typical UK spring or a sign of things to come? Actually, its both. Variable weather is ‘normal’ but climate change will bring more of the same. It will be more ‘normal’ to have extremes of weather. More big downpours + more droughts. Higher temperatures + bigger storms.
