28,504 Low Max Records were set in last 365 days 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.
Only 13205 High Max records were set. That is over a 2:1 ratio. Brrr.
According to the NOAA, Indiana didn’t get the memo about CO2 causing warming
The graph is in thise post compares sea ice extent for just one day of each year – 138 to the AMO for the month day 138 is in – in this case May. There isn’t any AMO data for May 2014 yet.
AMO data comes from NOAA, Sea Ice data comes from NSIDC.
The red is the May AMO – Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation. The blue is Antarctic Sea Ice Extent just for day 138.
The dashed lines are the liner trends for each.

The other day I did a post about HADCET data by month showing how some of the months have a 350 year flat trend.
The next day I did a post about the top 18 year warming trends at anytime in the 350 year history of HADCET.
How about 60 years? Surely the key period in global warming propaganda is 1950 on. You might expect them all to be around 1950 to 2000 or so wouldn’t you? Well, if you believe in global warming you might. But if you haven’t been taken in, you might not.
Well, only two months (July and August) were from the modern era. October was close, but 1912 to 1971 doesn’t fit the AGW cult criteria.
Eight of the months started the trend in the 1600s. One in the 1700s.
So much for CO2 as the cause of “unprecedented warming”. The warming was for the most part very precedented.

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent data has been unavailable for a few days. I emailed NSIDC and today they replied and said:
“Occasional short-term delays and data outages do occur and are usually resolved in a few days. We are currently experiencing such a short-term delay and we will get the issue resolved as quickly as possible.”
Commenter Gary also posted a link to this page that says:
“October 25, 2013: Daily updates to the graph and image are temporarily suspended due to technical difficulties with the data provider.”
Yesterday I did post about HADCET data by month showing how some of the months have a 350 year flat trend.
Today I thought I would look at the top 18 year warming trends at anytime in the 350 year history of HADCET. Why 18 years? Well, 1980 to 1998 was 18 years.
You might expect them all to be around 1980 to 1998 wouldn’t you? Well, if believe in global warming you might. But if you haven’t been taken in, you might not.
Only one recent month made it in the top. February 1983 to 2000. 2.53C per decade. Helped by the 5th coldest February in 1986 and the 3rd warmest February in 1998. That was an 8C rise.
But the next closest was January 1959 to 1976. And five of the trends start in the 1600s! One in the 1700s. And four in the 1800s.
There is nothing unusual about the warm in the 1980s to 1990s.

I was looking at the HADCET data by month out of curiousity and I noticed that the month of June had a pretty flat trend for a long, long time.
So I thought to myself, how far can I go back with HADCET and get a flat or just slightly flat trend for individual months?
The graph below (click for full size) has a graph for each month. The months are grouped by season. And the data for each month is the the furthest back you can go with a trend of 0C/decade or lower.
The grand champion is June. The trend is 0C/decade from 1663 to 2013.
Wow. Not much of a “Global Warming Signal” in a 350 year flat trend is there?
2nd longest is February with 0C/Decade trend from 1846 to 2013.
3rd longest is December with a -0.003C/Decade trend from 1907 to 2012.
4th is July from 1981. 5th is March from 1986. 6th and 7th is January and August from 1987. May from 1988. October and November from 1994, September from 1995, And April from 2001,
I always wonder why CO2 is such a selective month.
Antarctic Sea Ice Area came within 85,200 sq km short of an all time record. Sea Ice Area reached 16.14718 million sq km on day 282. This was the 7th highest of all time.
I normally do Sea Ice Extent, but Cryosphere uses Sea Ice Area.
Sea Ice Area had lagged Extent for most of the peak, but suddenly advanced after the normal maximum was reached. The maximum for 2013 was reached on day 282 which is 19 days later than the 2007 record.
2007 holds the record for most Sea Ice Area at 16.23238 million sq km.
