When I was coming home early from school today, I got attacked by lots of hail. I don't remember seeing hail falling, or at least being hit by it, ever in my life, so it was really weird.

What's the weirdest weather you've experienced?

Another really weird time was when I was about 8. We were looking through the town I now live in, looking for houses to move to. I lived in Queens at the time and my parents decided to move. Anyway, there was so much rain outside that it looks like a pond. We actually passed by a pond, and it was overflowing so much that the benches were half-way submursed. That was pretty unusual.

once it rained for 12 or so hours and it flooded everything, and it washed away bridges, then there was the ice storm a coupla years ago, it caused a power outage that lasted a week

This place constantly defies all logic of weather patterns. As I was going to class it was partly cloudy and somewhere around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and all around a good day. When I got out of my class 50 minutes later, it was an all out blizzard and visibility was down to a couple hundred yards. Now there's not a cloud in the sky and it's all warm and everything again.

Tropical Storm Allison

I live in Houston, which was flooded by Allison. First of all, all the meteorologists were saying it was going to come up and around us. But Allison came straight to the Houston, and then just stopped. It just sits over us for a while. Then it starts to move east. As it is just about to leave Houston, Allison decided it missed Houston so it started to move west and came back, and it stayed for another while. The first time it saturated the ground entirely, the second time it flooded the hell out of Houston.

And it snowed this Christmas Eve in Houston, it NEVER snows in Houston, especially not in December.

Once I was walking to the train station on my way home from school and got soaked to the loins by a pretty hardcore rain shower. When I was on the train, as the journey progressed (very short - 3 stops, 6 minutes) the weather gradually changed from gloomy, to beautifully fresh and sunny. I got off at the stop of my town, and everything was dry as anything, with the sun shining brightly, with evidently no rain! I must've looked pretty strange walking home, squelching away, while everyone else was dry as anything

This thread has the potential for hilarity :p

During my tenure at high school, I was waiting for the bus one day, and I guess the nice friendly raincloud (rainecloud?) was flying down the street towards me, because I looked down the street and people went 'ahhh!' in a stream towards me, all cowering. Then suddenly I was bombarded with a torrent of rain, just like that. No transition.

Weee!

There is no weird weather in San Diego, just sun. And occasionally some rain. *shrug*

I'm sick of the winter weather. And living in Western Pennsylvania doesn't help.

Not the strangest, but it's still in my brain:

Yesterday, it was almost 70F, today it was 10F. They're screwing with me.

Same thing here! It was so warm yesterday, now it's snowing and hailing!

It hailed pellets of frozen raindrops in LA a couple weeks ago.

It is beautiful in Northern California today. This is probably the best time of the year.

The weirdest weather I've experienced is the humidity in Korea. Nothing like our dry heat. Much much worse, in fact.

Texas weather is weird. :/ I've been close to a few tornadoes in my lifetime (See: March 28th, 2000), and plenty of hailstorms and the like. Only seen real snow one time in my life. Lots of heat. A few good droughts, too. We also get a lot of rain, though. It does what it wants. Nobody can predict Texas weather.

I swam in my front yard once because everything got flooded. And there was that storm with gumball-sized hail.

I've been through a great number of hurricanes, having lived on the east coast of Florida for most of my life. I went through the eye of a hurricane twice, the sky is all pink. Rather soothing.

I remember when I was driving, it was all sunny out. But a few minutes later it was raining so hard that not even my windshield wipers could move fast enough to displace the rain. It felt like small elves were pounding their fists on my car.

Another day I was driving, HUGE chunks of hail the size of golfballs started hitting my car. I was surprised my windshield withstood the hits without a scratch...I mean these things were HUGE. But eh...just another life in the day of Dingo Jellybean.

Over here in England, we call the weather "weird" when the sun begins to shine.

We're used to massive amounts of rain, snow, hail, thunder, etc.

In Malaysia, we have two seasons. The really really really hot one, and the rainy one where everyone gets the 'flu. Right now, we're in the really really hot one. :( And it's...hot.

One day, when I was a stupid kid we were having fine weather. Everyday I would make stupid prank calls off a phone box. One time I thought I'd be really "bad ass" and prank call emergency services and told them I was stuck at sea. The next day the town had seen the worst weather it had ever seen, the waves were flying over the barrier right across the road.
One even hit me off my bike an I hurt me bones.

I sure learnt my lesson.

It was warm yesterday and very windy, then it rained all night.

Now it's still windy and it stopped raining but it's now snowing. Which is good, because I love snow. :]

I guess the weirdest weather related thing that ever happened to me was being indirectly struck by lightening. We used to live in a trailer, built way back in the eighties, when they were ALL METAL. So my dad, sister and me were coming home one evening in the middle of this huge thunderstorm. Dad had just put his key in the front door, and I was holding on to our "storm door" (HAHAHAHAHAHA) so it didn't slam anybody in the back. Then there was this buzzing sound, and next thing I know my hand is glued to the door and I can feel electricity moving up and down my back and legs. Turns out, lightening had struck the roof of the trailer in the far corner. There was even a tiny little hole burned into it. It was weird. :D

"weird" pretty much sums up all weather in the Maritimes. If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it'll change.

Yesterday, we had snow, then the sun came out and melted it all, and then we got rain, and then hail, and then it snowed again. All in the course of 24 hours.

yes good old maritime weather, last night it rained from 10:30pm until about 3:00am, and it was very windy.

I was pretty lucky when lightning struck the ground 30 feet from my cousin and me, if it was any closer one of us would have been the target.

It's 80 degrees outside right now. :D

Anyway, weirdest weather... gotta be the deathly cold I experienced last summer. I had to go out and buy pants because I didn't have any with me.

Yesterday it went from in the 50's to hailing and snowing within the hour.
i've been driving along and have just suddenly come out of the rain like there was a wall blocking it or something.
i've also been looking out my window and have seen the rain travel down my street.
