NOAA: U.S. posts second-hottest year on record – POLITICO

In fact, it was one of the least hot years on record in the US, ranking in the bottom ten of areal coverage of hot weather. During the 1930’s ninety percent of the US reached 95 degrees. Last year only 65% of the US made it to 95 degrees.

Last year also ranked near the bottom for frequency of hot days, which have also plummeted since the 1930’s.

This data is not in dispute and is not subject to any NOAA adjustments. Claims that 2015 was a hot year in the US are simply fraudulent.

    You are comparing max temp to average heat.
    I’d like to have more confidence.

    Tony,

    NOAA’s Climate at a Glance web page, where you can pull up the annual temp average’s for all 50 states (state wide annual average- HI is not on board) one can find that there are only 5 (MT was tied with 1934) states where the average temp for 2015 was the highest (121/121) on record for that state. Only 3 in 2nd place. Eyeballing it, perhaps the average is something like 110-115th out of 121 for the warmest.

    How they do that?

    I jotted my numbers down (for all 50 states) – but one would have to really check them. Also there’s a good number of ties (with old dates, obviously).

    Nation’s Restaurant News, the most widely respected trade publication in the restaurant industry, has named Twin Peaks one of its “Hot Concepts!” for 2010.
