Update: Global is LAND temperatures, not LAND and OCEAN combined because of course the USA is not an ocean.
Wow.This is NOAA Global versus NOAA USA Tmax for October only.
What an amazing divergence over the last 30 years.
When the AGW cult says the USA is only 2% of the globe, remind them that USA and Global temperatures used to track pretty closely.
According to the NOAA Year To Date (January to October 2014) was 80th Hottest Max Temperature out of 120.
How hot was October 1963 in the USA?
In 1963 October was 3.9F hotter than October 2014.
20 states had the hottest max temperature ever for October. (Those marked 120)
10 states had the 2nd hottest max temperature ever for October. (Those marked 119)
3 states had the 3rd hottest max temperature ever for October. (Those marked 118)
So much for CO2 …
Wow. According to the NOAA October 2014 was 8th Hottest Max Temperature.
Tied with 1927.
Only 1963, 1947, 1950, 1953, 1938, 1934 and 2003 Were Hotter.
October 1963 was 3.9F hotter. Sneaky global warming.
According to the NOAA, September 2014 in California was 0.31″ above the 1901-2000 average. 2013 was .32″ Above Normal.
According to the NOAA, September 2014 was 0.09″ above the 1901-2000 average.
According to the NOAA, September 2014 ranked 68th coldest out of 120 using the Maximum temperature.
The 10 warmest Septembers: 1998, 1922, 1953, 1931, 1939, 2005, 1933, 1952, 1990, 1947.
According to the NOAA, California Precipitation for Sept-Aug is the 3rd lowest of all time behind 1923/24 and 1976/77.
It must be “Global Warming” caused by CO2 if it is almost as dry as 1923.
Wow. One record was broken by 25F!!!!
1695 Low Max Records Broken or Tied From Sept 11 to Sept 20 according to the NOAA.
A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been. This indicates daytime cooling.
Below is a screenshot showing location and the biggest difference between old record and new record.
The list is just the ones I could capture in a screenshot.
Update: An all-time record was set the next day
I usually graph Sea Ice Extent. Every once in a while I graph Sea Ice Area.
“A simplified way to think of extent versus area is to imagine a slice of swiss cheese. Extent would be a measure of the edges of the slice of cheese and all of the space inside it. Area would be the measure of where there is cheese only, not including the holes. That is why if you compare extent and area in the same time period, extent is always bigger.”
Antarctic Sea Ice Area is within 29,600 sq km of an all time record (which occurred in 2007 at 16.23238 million sq km).
Day 255 is 5th behind 2 days in 2007 and 2 days in 2012.
