This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I. Thomas Hardy, Weathers 1922

The Sun’s raging surface is turbulent. Its eruptions ripped and torn by enormous magnetic fields. Soho revealed that like the Earth the Sun has weather: gigantic solar tornadoes twist through its atmosphere. And gigantic shockwaves ripple across its surface. The surface of the Sun is heaving. Every five minutes the entire star breathes in and out. Our Sun is pulsating. Universe: Stars
What if the weather forecast predicted high winds ten times the speed of sound? Or an evening downpour of sulphuric acid rain? Or even a hurricane twice the size of Earth lasting three hundred years? This is not the stuff of fiction but real weather reports from around the universe; it’s Earth’s weather in the extreme. The Universe s2e15: Wildest Weather in the Cosmos, History 2008
Just move to the Internet. It’s great here. We get to live inside where the weather is always awesome. John Green

If anything shapes a national character, I think weather is the most important thing of all. Martin Amis’s England, BBC 2014
When Enron announced its latest plan to trade weather, people wondered whether it was good science or science fiction. Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, 2005

Contending with the fretful elements;
Bids the wind blow the earth into the sea,
Or swell the curled waters ’bove the main
That things might change or cease. William Shakespeare, The History of King Lear III i 4
Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
Your cataracts and hurricanos, spout
Till you have drenched our steeples, drowned the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o’ the world!
Crack nature’s moulds, all germens spill at once
That make ingrateful man! ibid. III ii 1
Rumble thy bellyful! Spit, fire! Spout, rain!
Nor rain, wind, thunder, fire, are my daughters:
I tax not you, you elements, with unkindness. ibid. III ii 14
We have suspected that there were just about two dozen people who around the world, mostly this side of the Atlantic and in America who were putting this global warming scam together and actually driving it, rather than doing what the likes of Al Gore and the Politicians do – just drifting alone with it because they don’t know better ... Their data is no good. There’s going to have to be a criminal investigation ... Hey! This is weather data – it’s not a state secret ... These people are financial fraudsters. They took at least $20,000,000 that we can trace in recent years, in so-called grants for so-called scientific research and they did it on the basis of a financial and scientific fraud. So they should not only be locked up for concealing and destroying data that had been requested under the Freedom of Information Act by other scientists, they should be also locked up for fraud and international racketeering. Lord Christopher Monckton, interview Alex Jones
Something strange is happening to our weather. It seems to be getting more extreme. Horizon: Global Weirding, BBC 2012
Records have been broken all over the planet. ibid.
Some scientists are calling it Global Weirding. ibid.
How can it be record-breaking wet and dry at the same time? ibid.
The Little Ice Age ... The coldest winter ever recorded was in 1683/4 ... Why did the sun’s spots disappear for fifty-odd years? ibid.
Over the last few years Britain’s weather has become more extreme. Especially our winters. Last winter was the wettest on record. Deadly storms battered Britain for months ... Has it got anything to do with Climate Change? Horizon: What’s Wrong With Our Weather? BBC 2014
There were at least twelve major storms last winter. ibid.
If you look at the ten hottest years ever measured in this atmospheric record, they’ve all occurred in the last fourteen years. And the hottest of all was 2005. Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth, 2006
The origin of our solar weather technique of long-range forecasting came originally from the study of sun spots and a desire to predict those. Dr Piers Corbyn, Weather Action
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. John Ruskin
There is a sumptuous variety about the New England weather that compels the stranger’s admiration – and regret. The weather is always doing something there; always attending strictly to business; always getting up new designs and trying them on the people to see how they will go. Mark Twain
Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight; red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning. Late 14th century proverb
There is a vibrational change going on within the Earth’s energy field and this is affecting weather patterns. David Icke
And there is no doubt whatsoever, indeed the authorities have admitted it with patents and what have you, that they have weather-changing technology. David Icke
Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way ... Well, if you’re watching, don’t worry, there isn’t! Michael Fish, BBC Weather 15th October 1987
Since my man and I ain’t together. Ted Koehler, song 1933
When two Englishmen meet, their first talk is of the weather. Samuel Johnson
’Tis the hard great weather
Breeds hard English men. Charles Kingsley, Ode to the North-East Wind, 1858
Come; and strong within us
Stir the Vikings’ blood;
Bracing brain and sinew;
Blow, thou wind of God. ibid.
You can think of weather as an atmosphere trying to balance itself ... Weather is just things coming to an equilibrium. Michelle Thaller, NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre
For all its drama and power the impact of our recent extreme weather is nothing compared to history. Though 2014 was the wettest winter ever recorded, with floods of Biblical magnitude, the human costs are not even on the same scale as in the past. Timeshift: Killer Storms and Cruel Winters, BBC 2014
