Washington (AP) — A government researcher confirms what many Americans already suspect; the weather in recent years has been very odd. […]

Tom Karl, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says six of the past 10 winters — four more than normal — have been “extreme.” […]

“When the temperature is averaged across the contiguous 48 states we find that there have been three winters with much below normal temperatures and three that were much above normal in the past decade,” Karl said.
