Ongoing extremes and major contrasts across USA and Europe and associated large amplitude swings in the Jet Stream are aspects of pre-Little Ice Age Weather patterns as the world descends towards a new Little Ice Age of a colder climate caused by low solar activity especially around 2020-45.

WHAT HAS THE BBC GOT TO HIDE - Why was Piers Corbyn's posting (no 66) on Paul Hudson's blog removed by BBC?
It was post number 66 - the number of The beast! - and about peer review and the 'coming soon but not really' BBC Weather Test, in response to a question in post No 64 UKpahonta:

Good to hear from you even in slightly confrontational circumstances.
Did that study organised by Harrabin on forecasts from independents and the MET office ever get off the ground or was it all bluster and blowing in the wind?
You should call in more frequently and perhaps register in our annual forecast. I'm sure that Neil Hamp could update us on the figures, it's only for fun but it might inspire those of us that don't depend upon forecasting for our living.
Piers said: “We score 95% success for our ‘Solar factors’ changes to TV forecasts of potential major storms. We warned when snow/snow showers forecast by UK MO for Scotland in recent winters would turn into economy-halting blizzards. The nationalist Scottish Government however doesn’t want to know and prefers to take instructions from the English dominated UK MO and carry on building prayer wheels (wind farms) in the name of so-called CO2 Global warming which is an implicit part of the UK MO failed approach and the economy-ruining ‘Green’ policies of the Coalition Govt and EU. Standard meteorology has reached its peak and no amount of extra computing power can overcome its limits anymore than £42 million spent on improving candles could make a light-bulb or laser beam.

Updated below with MUST READ comments from Piers Corbyn
I have put up a few comments on this in defense of Piers in another section and it would seem that the event on the Sun on the 17th May (The Sun Finds It's Mojo)) seems to be the main suspect. The event on the Sun went world wide and not only disturbed the Northern European pressure systems that was producing the cold flow of air to the UK but other areas in the World were also having colder then average temperatures at the same time. Take a look at this YouTube produced a day after the major solar event on the Sun and listen to what the forecaster had to say about the weather pattern changes in Northern Europe.
The Irony is that Piers uses the Sun to make longrange forecasts but as you will read from this report from NASA, the Sun does not always do what Piers expects it to do, hence his long range forecasts are never put forward as being 100% accurate, just 80%. Thats 80% higher then long range forecasts produced by the Met Office, who at the end of the day are only able to make a guess if the temperatures will be higher or lower then average for the month. That's not very useful if your a farmer who has snow and frost in the first half of the month and a heat wave in the second half, only to be informed by the Met Office that it was an average month for temperatures and they were correct with their monthly forecast!
This graph shows the neutrons detected by a neutron detector at the University of Oulu in Finland from May 16 through May 18, 2012. The peak on May 17 represents an increase in the number of neutrons detected, a phenomenon dubbed a ground level enhancement or GLE. This was the first GLE since December of 2006.

Red Warning periods – are now standardized R1 to R5 (most extreme effect). In WeatherAction Solar Lunar Action Technique they indicate Solar-Lunar drivers of thunderstorm and related extreme events around the world. Extreme weather event risk Periods such as thunder/tornado (espec USA) development & potential Tropical Storm Formation periods are consequences of these drivers and are also periods in which standard meteorology models will notably underestimate strength of deluges, thunder, snow etc in forecasts from a day or so ahead. In these periods typically standard meteorology forecast (smf) estimates of rain/snow from a day or so ahead need to be doubled (or more for R5). Dates are UTC for estimation although there are uncertainties. FORECAST MAPS & detailed forecasts with corresponding specific likely weather events are issued for various parts of the world. Lesser extreme (‘Extra Activity’) and ‘Quiet periods’ and likely consequent weather scenarios are stated therein.
Major Earthquake Trial Risk Periods are in 2 categories, Q and q (with Q>q expected but the relationship is noisy). Volcano risk is similarly and v (V>v). These combine to give QV, Qv etc periods. Periods are largely the same as or overlap with Red warning weather periods and are not specific to any particular Earthquake prone region or location except SLAT 7A and SLAT 8 (from June 1st) may give some preferred earth hemispheres – see table. Q periods should give ~M6.0 & above earthquakes (Red on US Geological Survey) eg as on earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews & associated volcanism and increase of lesser quakes in low average quake level regions.
