Canadian climate experts Katharine and Catherine team up to explain why warm days are climate and cold days are just weather.
Right after Climate Barbie bragged about a warm day in New York at the end of February, New York State had their coldest March/April in over 40 years.
I warned alarmists at the beginning of the month that their day of reckoning would come near the end of May, and it is nearly here. Arctic sea ice volume is the highest in five years, and much higher than 10 years ago. Ice is melting very slowly, and volume is getting very close to the “normal” line.
May 26 temperatures in the US have declined sharply since about 1910.
On this date in 1911, almost the entire eastern US was over 90 degrees.
Similar story in 1914, with 90 degree weather up into Vermont.
Eli Melaas is bragging that Blue Hill, MA has the best temperature record in the US.
And he provided this graph.
This is what the actual USHCN daily data looks like.
I plotted four versions of the graph – Melaas, USHCN raw daily, USHCN raw monthly, and USHCN adjusted monthly. As you can see there is a huge spread, other than the two raw data sets which agree almost exactly.
Here is the graph from the NOAA web site. Essentially identical to the USHCN adjusted.
Blue Hill is one of the few USHCN stations where NOAA warms the past with the adjustments. Melaas version of the data shows a lot more warming than other data sets. Here is the difference between Melaas and USHCN adjusted temperatures.
Here is the difference between Mellas and USHCN raw temperatures.
If the Blue Hill station is so good, why is the data being tampered with? And why does Melaas’ graph show so much more warming than the other graphs?
May 25th temperatures have been declining in the US since the 19th century, with recent years among the coolest.
On May 25, 1911 most of the US east of the Rockies was above 90 degrees., with 100 degree temperatures in Oklahoma, Illinois and South Carolina.
On May 25, 1967 there was a very intense heatwave centered over Nebraska, with Hartington, Nebraska reaching 107 degrees, and many surrounding states over 100 degrees.
Arctic sea ice volume is highest in five years, and approaching the “normal” line.
It has been ten years since Mark Serreze and David Barber predicted an ice-free North Pole that summer, and I countered with an article in The Register “Arctic Ice Refuses To Melt As Ordered”
DMI and NSIDC continue to show Arctic sea ice extent declining.
NSIDC maps show almost no change over the past two days. red shows ice loss since May 21, green shows ice gain.
May 24 afternoon temperatures have been declining in the US since the 19th century, and the frequency of hot days has plummeted – with recent years being among the coolest on record. On May 24, 1926, temperatures over 100 degrees were reported in South Dakota Nebraska, Arkansas and Arizona. Kennebec, South Dakota was 105 degrees on both May 23 and May 24 that year.
On May 24, 1939, Madison, Indiana was 100 degrees. They had 100 degree weather from May 24 to October 8 that year, and 90 degree weather from April 24 to October 20.
One hundred degree temperatures on May 24, 1939 were recorded in Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
On this date in 1921, the Eastern two thirds of the country was extremely hot, with Caruthersville, Missouri at 102 degrees and Hobart, Indiana at 100 degrees.
The heatwave of 1921 never let up all summer. Caruthersville had 71 days over 100 degrees.
1921 had the third highest average maximum temperature in the US since 1895
If we had a summer like that now, climate scientists would be 100% certain it was due to CO2, and would demand immediate world communism.
Ten years ago today, Windsor Colorado was largely destroyed by a half mile wide tornado. I was just a few miles away and drove through there right after the tornado hit. Hundreds of homes were destroyed and there was natural gas leaking everywhere.
That morning was warm and very humid, and the clouds were green. I knew there was going to be tornadoes as soon as I looked out the window that morning.
