According to Time Magazine: “Climate change skeptics are pointing to the record cold weather as evidence that the globe isn’t warming. But it could be that melting Arctic ice is making sudden cold snaps more likely—not less

Do you want to see what a cold snap really looks like according to the NOAA?

In 2014, Feb was -1.69°F below the 1901-2000 average. In February 1936 the USA was -8.59°F below average. Big difference.

In North Dakota, February 1936 was -26.0°F below the 1901-2000 average. The whole month averaged -14.1°F below 0.

Some of those divisions are 16F above normal.

PS I just randomly picked 1934 without checking. And then I noticed 1910 … but I’ll post the 1934 map so it doesn’t go to waste.

NOAA Precipitation Update as of Feb 2014 – Last 12 Months Were Normal

Filed under: NOAA,Precipitation,USA — sunshinehours1 @ 6:24 AM
Tags: , ,

I missed this when it came out last month, but according to the NOAA Precipitation for the 12 month period ending February 2014 was normal.

It was .19 inches above the 1901-2000 mean.

Wasn’t there supposed to be a permanent “Climate Change” drought?

Addendum: If you split the NOAA Climate History in two (March – February), these are the averages:

1895 – 1955 = 29.45 inches

http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/time-series/us/110/00/pcp/12/02/1895-2014?base_prd=true&firstbaseyear=1896&lastbaseyear=1955

1956 – 2014 = 30.44

One last one:

1980 – 2014 = 30.75 inches

http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/time-series/us/110/00/pcp/12/02/1895-2014?base_prd=true&firstbaseyear=1980&lastbaseyear=2014

 

Climate Change … bringer of slightly more precipitation.

NOAA USA January – 67 January’s Were Warmer

Filed under: NOAA,USA — sunshinehours1 @ 8:24 AM
Tags: , ,

According to the NOAA, January was only the 53rd warmest out of 120. That means 67 January’s (out of 120) were warmer.

The lower 48 states were pretty much divided right down the middle. Very cold in the east, warm in the west and normal in the states directly above Texas.

Alabama had its 4th coldest January in 120 years. It was -8.3F colder than normal. Minnesota was the coldest state, averaging 2.3F. Brrr. Only 52.3F colder than Florida.

NOAA USA December 2013 – 6 States Cooling From 1895

A few interesting (to me) graphs concerning the NOAA December 2013 temperate data.

Did you know six states (the ones in blue) have been cooling since 1895?

NOAA Dec 1895 to 2013

Did you know 30 states (of the lower 48) are cooling from 1998. North Dakota is cooling at at -56F per century in December since 1998.

NOAA Dec 1998 to 2013

Did you know that if you checked to see how far back you have to go to find the longest negative trend for December, many states go back a long, long way? Only Delaware is weird. NOAA - How Far Can You Go Back - Dec as of 2013

A couple of days ago I did a post about December 2013 being the 21st coldest in USA history.

Do you want to know what real global warming looks like?

12 degrees Fahrenheit increase from 1909 to 1939.

2.04°F Below Normal – NOAA USA December 2013 – 98 Decembers Were Warmer

Filed under: NOAA,USA — sunshinehours1 @ 8:06 AM
Tags: , ,

According to the NOAA, December 2013 was only the 21st warmest out of 119. That means 98 Decembers (out of 119) were warmer.

The 5 warmest Decembers were 1939, 1957, 1933, 1941 and 1946.

OMG. 2.04°F Below Normal. We are all going to freeze to death if this keeps happening.
