I just had to put that in, since there are actually headlines like that. I would prefer the term 'extreme variability' which another analysis used. They said we were in this variability, reminiscent of the 60's. Here is the gif showing the strong polar vortex.
Variability is apparent by the narrow band of very warm moist air, and by the velocity of the vortex which shears off any plume trying to warm us up. Britain is getting lashed with the remnants of the plumes and it's very wet there. Today my dog door was rimmed in ice!
