Plummeting August 1 Temperatures In The US

Prior to 1960, August 1 was typically a very hot day in the US with about half of the US over 90 degrees. Since 1960, the percentage of the US over 90 degrees on August 1 has dropped to about 40%.

On August 1, 1955 every state was over 90 degrees, and twenty states recorded temperatures over 100 degrees. (AZ CA CO IA ID KS MN MO MT ND NE NJ NV NY OK SD TX UT VA WY)

The New York Times says extremely hot weather was unheard of in the 1950’s, but as with everything else – they are lying.

    A little OT Tony but I was reading another the West is getting hotter and burning article. I went on Pulling Back the Curtain app to check out some areas and the Boulder site shows a lot of warming. So I pulled up the station site and it’s sitting in the midst of nothing but concrete and asphalt now. This looks like an obvious UHI situation. It’s right there in your neck of the woods maybe you could give us an up close assessment. Keep up the great work.

    Same 70° temp here in west Tx as Minot, North Dakota AND Fairbanks, Alaska. Please keep sending us more of this ‘excessive heat’ due to agw. Lol

      And did i mention the RAIN?! Great gawd almighty! So much of the stuff it looks like vietnam out here. Since the (non-agw) drought broke in Texas a few years back, it’s like the heavens have opened up on us.

    Apparently, Miami was at a record high for July 2017. “Every day except July 31 saw a high temperature at or above 90°F”. Wow…0.2 degrees above the record but it needs its own article.
