How about this weather?

For today the Dutch Royal Metereological Institute, the KNMI, has issued the ‘Code Yellow’ warning: in the east (where we live) there will be lots of thunderstorms and very heavy rainfall in short periods of time. Hail, flurries, all that kind of stuff. Until this all gets unleashed upon us, it can get up to 28 degrees Celsius today.

The KNMI have said that we have to expect more and more of this type of weather from now on: winters will get warmer and summers will get hotter. Higher temperatures, a faster rising sea level… Climate change is not something of the future anymore, it is already here, right now.
