In 2012 we've had 1175 record heat days, 526 days of record rainfall, and 98 days of record snowfall.

Brace yourself for more weird and wild weather, because 2012 may well outdo 2011 when it comes to shattering extreme weather records. This spring's prolonged heat wave gave us the hottest March since record-keeping began back in 1895 -- an astounding 671 records were broken, according to the National Weather Service. And April 2012 marked the end of the warmest 12-month stretch ever in the US. Scientists tell us that our warming climate is causing more of these extreme weather events, and warn that if we don't seek solutions to climate change, it could get much, much worse.
