Summers Getting Much Shorter In Alabama


In 1927, Alabama had 271 days between their first and last 90 degree day.  But now they average just over half that. Summers in Alabama have been much shorter since 1940.

The percentage of hot days is also declining.


Michael Bloomberg wants your guns and soft drinks, and also believes that the thoughts of global warming skeptics are going to destroy Alabama.

    Summerlike weather, on the other hand, has indeed gotten shorter in terms of the number of days at or above 90F high temperature. First 90+ day may occur anywhere from March to June. Last one anywhere from August to October. Something forgotten, maybe, is that Alabama averages 55 inches of rain each year, most of it from November through May. The southern edge lies at about 30.4 degrees N, the northern border at 35 degrees N. Daylight hours vary from a bit over 10 hours in winter along the coast to a bit under 10 hours at the border with Tennessee. Daylight hours in the summer vary from a bit under 14 hours along the coast to a bit over 14 hours at the border with Tennessee. Where I am, zenith angle in summer is about 10 degrees and in the winter about 56 degrees (or 80 degrees above the horizon in summer to 34 degrees above the horizon in winter).
