We show that patternsof variationsin the central England temperature since 1660 asw ell asrainfall in England and Waless ince 1726 contain dominant oscillations and switching sequences at the periods of some sunspot cycles. These particular sunspot cycles are: the 80–90 year sunspot cycle, the 22-year sunspot cycle, and the 11-year sunspot cycle. In particular, the variation patterns are switched from one form into another form at a switching period of 80–90 years. Solar cycles of relatively larger periodicities are also dominantly reflected in southeast Scotland temperature recordss ince 1125 A.D. and in California temperature recordss ince 3431 B.C. We also show that some large and rapid changes in central England and California temperature variations are associated with solar activity.
