Declining October 11 Temperatures In The US

Prior to 1965, October 11 used to be a warm day in the US, but over the past century October 11 afternoon temperatures have fallen several degrees.

On this date in 1928, temperatures were in the 90’s as far north as Lake Erie.

    You have done such an amazing job pointing out the supposed unprecedented conditions of today are by no means unprecedented. By and large the historical documents and news articles are the most compelling evidence, at least as far as average people are concerned.

    For people like me (I have a degree in mathematics and 30 years experience working as a Quality Engineer) the graphs and the math speak in a well understandable language. For most of the people I know that stuff makes their eyes glaze over.

    It is also far to easy for people to dismiss the evidences of a single day or even a single year. The so called experts can and do paint those things as anomalies, and claim such occurrences are more frequent today.

    I would like to see, if nothing else, an archive of those pieces of historical evidence. Preferably indexed by year and region. I am wondering if it would be possible to organize that into a presentational type format that would paint a clear picture. Something the average person who has little to no math literacy could understand.

    Having read your blog for a very long time and observed these things it seems to me what you have presented in pieces would be extremely compelling, perhaps over whelming, presented in mass. A reconstruction of the past not made in dry, un-relatable, adjustable numbers from a monitoring station. Rather, one made from the observations of real people in the real world. Data, observation, and descriptions of conditions from the people who were there, perhaps even coupled with the data.

    Even better if others could add to that base of data and evidence.

    I believe on or about October 11, 1963 that Boston reached 90 degrees. Earlier that same month, Huron, SD reached 102.

    It is also interesting that on the hottest October 11th on record, during 1962, an ex-typhoon slammed into the Oregon coast with the power of a CAT 4 hurricane, with wind gusts over 150 mph. Tremendous destruction of the Oregon forests. If that kind of storm and warmth happened today, the alarmists would no doubt insist it was all caused by straight, white science deniers and a certain sign of climate change.

      Great find, here’s a story on it:

      The Oregon Encyclopedia
      Columbus Day Storm (1962)

      On the morning of Friday, October 12, 1962—Columbus Day—a massive storm hit the coast of northern California. The storm had originated several days earlier in the Pacific Ocean, about four hundred miles north of Wake Island. Re-energized by a combination of unusual meteorological conditions, the storm moved north with the gathering force of a Category 3 hurricane. Originally named Typhoon Freda by meteorologists and called the Big Blow by many, it may have been the most powerful extratropical cyclone ever to hit the western United States.

    A bit OT, and I know nobody is interested in sea ice at this time of year…

    but in MASIE the extent is now above all years since 2006 except 2013 and 2014
