This talk gives an overview of significant large-scale weather and climate anomalies in 2014, with a discussion of the resultant seasonal temperature and precipitation anomalies around the Globe. Weather and climate events include severe drought conditions, heat waves, cold waves, wildfires, major tropical cyclones and extratropical storms, flooding rains, snow storms, and sea ice conditions. Where possible, these are related to the ENSO conditions of last year, as well as to expected impacts due to anthropogenic climate change.
