September 1, 1913

Today marks the beginning of meteorological Autumn.  It has been cold here in Colorado the last couple of weeks, but in 1913 it was over 100F on this date. Almost the entire country was over 90F on September 1, 1913, with much of the country over 100F. Iowa was 108F.

    I see that Wisconsin has a big fat 100° but we just got done with the hottest August ever.

    September 1953, there was another bad early September heatwave.

    Around September 7, 1881 there also was a very bad heatwave, where the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC recorded 108.5 degrees. That extraordinary heat was 2.5 degrees higher than the “modern” all time high temperature record for DC, 106 degrees, set in July 1930 and August 1918.

    So DC’s three hottest temperatures were recorded 135 years ago, 98 years ago and 86 years ago. Does not exactly sound like catastrophic warming to me!

    September 1881 also produced a huge wildfire in Michigan that killed hundreds of people. Nothing remotely similar in recent times.

    I see Tony gets a nod at Breitbart today with the Northabout Polar Ocean Arctic expedition:

    “Tony Heller, who has been following the expedition closely at Real Climate Science, says ‘they are taking a big risk heading into the Northwest Passage now with winter setting in. Even if they don’t encounter ice, it will be cold and the weather rough.’”

    Did Rice even bother to show up tonight? :P
