Lamb (1974) has seen some parallelism between the course of climatic fluctuations in this century and those of the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. The presently observed pattern in middle latitudes may imply that a very awkward kind of year-to-year variability is developing. Opposite extremes of warmth and cold, wet and dry have occurred in different sectors of the same zone. The same season at one place may tend to opposite extremes in different years, as blocking centres shift. There appear to be common characteristics between the cooling trend since the 1940s and most earlier global climatic episodes.
