    Current weather map for the US (note it will update so my comments are valid for 20z)

    Low pressure moving through Utah (the state north of Arizona). If you watch any of the Super Bowl in a few hours' time, from Phoenix in southern Arizona, you'll notice the sky is overcast and it may start to rain at times, it is also rather cool for the desert southwest, 15 C. Utah is of course higher in general as well as further north. They usually get one or two snowstorms at low elevations each winter. My avatar is a picture taken in Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah, it looks stunning with snow on top of those coloured rocks, I was there in the winter of 1996 and although it was toasty warm in the sun, the nights can get down to -10 C on the plateau, and snow that falls sticks around all winter in the shade.

    I find it sickening that the biggest contributors to global warming by far are still enjoying some comparitively more enjoyable weather conditions!

    Not sure they're more "enjoyable", though I grant you more wintry.

    True! I guess it's all down to individual opinion, I personally enjoy wintry conditions (I swear if I lived in London and not Inverness I couldn't take the lack of snow and frost lol) so I feel a bit agitated when I see these kind of images. Furthermore, these record highs that SE England have experienced are so much different compared to the NW/NE (what the hell is Inverness? It's so hard to classify) Scotland record highs haha.

    Does look as if that location of America is experiencing some bitterly cold weather compared to the average;

    Not really seeing that it's bitterly cold compared to the average there Optimus. The main feature has been the high precipitation totals rather than how cold it has been. The Cascade Mountains in Washington have been absolutely buried by snow this winter. The Western ski resorts are loving it!
