Plummeting July 16 Temperatures In The US

The US used to be very hot on July 16, but temperatures have plummeted. The hottest July 16 was in 1936 when afternoon temperatures averaged over 94 degrees. The only other year that happened was in 1901.

The last hot July 16 was 2006, and since then July 16 temperatures have plummeted. The coolest July 16 was in 2014, with 2015 and 2016 (NASA’s hottest year ever) also among the 20 coolest years.

On July 16, 1936 almost the entire US was over 90 degrees, with much of the central part of the country over 100F. Sections of the midwest were over 110F. This was a major cool down from earlier that week.

Now compare vs. 2016 and 2014, which were two of the coolest years.

Climate scientists lie about essentially everything, but nowhere more than their claims about heatwaves.

It is nice and cool in Maryland today.

    I do hope we’re not going to lose you to drone addiction, Tony. lol. It looks a great gadget, especially so for someone like yourself who loves the natural world. Some great views there already.

    Right now a snowstorm is going on in chile.

    It seems that this damned outdated never to be seen again thing from the past is happening in regions
    where it hasn’t been seen for a long time.

    You know I would not be surprised to see global crop yield decline this year. A good segment of the corn and soy bean belt in the US and Canada has been exceptionally wet and up in Canada pretty cool also. I have noticed large sections of fields in Indiana and Illinois where crops have been drown. It’s well beyond the time that those crops can be planted.
    Maize is the single largest staple crop with soy beans rank 6th. The United States if by far the largest grower of both.

    Every idiot knows that cool summer weather is entirely consistent with catastrophic AGW, which is clearly caused by evil bigots like Trump that loathe the planet.

    I came across a document that will be of great interest to you, Tony. It has the climate normals for all climate divisions in the country starting with the first 30 years of 1931-1960, and ending with 1971-2000. It was published in Jun 2002.

    In an older post, you mentioned the adjustments to Maine as an example in Joe’s paper. Here’s an example of the downward adjustments in recent years based on what was published 15 years ago in above document. 2017 values came from here.
