Try To Remember … The Kind Of Hot September

Prior to 60 years ago, 100 degree weather in the US was quite common during September. During the early 1950’s almost one fourth of the US would reach 100 degrees sometime during September.  During September 1939, 40% of US stations reached 100F during September. But since 1955 the US has seen little September hot weather, with 100 degree weather mainly confined to the desert southwest.

Wait till I post the heatwave data of September 29, 1953. It will blow you away.

    Nevertheless, leading climate scientists say that we are all going to die!

    I was in Mrs. Hanrahan’s fourth grade class that September in 1953. I do remember that it was hot.

      And the events of Tuesday 8 November 2016 will have a lot to say weather or not your graph ever gets any wide spread attention.

    Maybe the wrong spot but the Polar Challenge page is now stating that there was so little ice, the trip was trivially easy, we have proved our point. Blah blah blah…

      Propaganda tripe.

      They were stuck mat the Vilkitsky Strait, only a storm that they knew was coming because of satellite data, allowed them to sneak around the Laptev

      They then avoided all the sea ice blocking all but one path through the NW passage, again, thanks to satellite based pre-knowledge.

      Then the only just made it out of the NW passage under full power of their fossil fuel powered engine.

    • Neal S says:

      Those of us who have followed closely, know that if they saw little ice in the northwest passage, it is because they had ice-charts, knew where the ice was, and avoided it as much as they possibly could. We also know that multiple times they barely made it through and thought themselves lucky.

      They are lying. But we knew in advance that they would do so.

      From only two days ago…

    • Gail Combs says:

      Yuppers, they saw very little sea ice.

    I grew up during the 1950’s, and the weather then was noticeably more extreme than today.

    We didn’t have an airconditioner back then, we had a watercooler, which worked pretty good up until the temperature got up around 100 degrees F, then it would just blow hot air. That lack of home cooling probably made the weather seem more extreme, but the historic temperature data also shows it was an extreme weather decade.
