Boulder December Temperatures Plummeting

Over the past 60 years, average and coldest December minimum temperatures at Boulder, Colorado have plummeted, and snowfall has increased. The coldest temperatures have declined about 16F.

The average minimum temperature is down 7F.

Average December snowfall has about doubled.

‘Last weekend was so cold (-10F) the dogs went on strike.

Yesterday we had winds close to 100 MPH.

Fortunately I captured some video of yesterday’s wind.

    Take Boulder, or Big Bear Lake, and throughout the US, or the Sahara Desert, or Siberia, “locally” we are seeing temperatures as low or lower than they’ve ever been. The leftist Chicken Littles say “well that’s just weather.” But when things are hot they immediately start squawking “that’s climate, see, globull warming!”

    WUWT just did a post on evidence that the global cool scare predominated over any warming concerns in the 1970s. Included where excerpts from many of over 200 papers worried about global cooling.

    I made a comment at WUWT that basically said this:

    Different papers in the 1970s pegged worldwide cooling from 1940 to be from 0.3° to 0.6°C.

    But here’s NASA’s 1999 chart of U.S. temperatures which shows at minimum 1.3°C in total cooling from 1935 to 1979: [chart at end of comment***]

    Others showed sharp cooling from 1940 to 1975 in the entire Northern Hemisphere (64% of the earth’s land mass).

    Without the warmist data manipulations I don’t see how all that cooling from 1940-75 could have been made up by the moderate warming in recent decades.

    Conclusion: worldwide, the 1930s were hotter than now!

    P.S. Tony, it’s great to hear your dogs are doing fine, albeit on strike!

  2. In Boulder the winter of 1981-2 the ice sublimated directly into vapor when I left lumps of it on the pavement. You had to pick them up to see the wet spot. Then came the Chinook winds at 135 MPH. I stayed up all night checking cracks in the wall plaster to see if they had grown–to detect stress on the structure. It literally sounded like a train in the front yard. One large house had the roof blown off–trusses, attic, insulation, ceiling and all–toward Denver and you couldn’t even see fragments of it on the slopes. Trees were down everywhere and plate glass blew out of store windows.
