In a few days we will be hearing the usual lies from NOAA and NASA about April being one of the hottest on record, but April was actually seventh warmest in the last 20 years, and there has been no trend in April temperatures for the last two decades.
Same story for the past 150 years …..
We have often noticed that in the tabular statements of those compilers of weather records who write to the Times, useful and welcome as their communications are, every season is sure to be “extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, coldest or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it

10 Jan 1871 – IMAGINARY CHANGES OF CLIMATE
Thanks to heat trapping gases released from your SUV, Cheboygan, Michigan was 22 degrees colder this April than it was in April 1942 – with every single day this past month cooler than the same date in 1942.
Great link to your spreadsheet (-: I like that a lot.
I just read recently that April was really cold in many places …
Milwaukee had its fifth-coldest April on record.
Madison had its second-coldest April on record (just a tenth of a degree above the coldest average temperature of 37.5 degrees, set in 1874). Its 13.5 inches of snow were also the second most on record in April to 1973’s 17.4 inches.
Green Bay had its second coldest April on record (just two-tenths of a degree above the coldest average temperature of 35.3 degrees, set in 1907). Its 36.7 inches of snow were the most on record by a huge margin, over 20 inches above the previous highest amount of 15.1 inches from 1907.
I enjoyed a little fresh snow at Winter Park Mary Jane resort today. Not bad skiing for mid-April (except that it’s May).
Chicago had coldest April in over 110 years. Rochester, MN had coldest and LaCrosse, WI, tied for coldest on record.
Here in Charleston, SC, this has been one of the coldest, wettest, and windiest springs I can remember.
Griff would say – but it is getting warmer.
Griff just needs to read the 150 year old article above
to realise that weather has always been much ado about nothing-
until a few decades ago some realised that they can create a worl wide
tax with such rhetorics
as it does not matter what really is but how the media is talking about it and how much air time it gets((one may think that every second american is gay when watching tv because they are so overrepresented while the real quote is somthing about 2-5%))
National Weather Service Head Is Accused Of Assaulting An Employee. He Denies It
The National Weather Service (NWS) has denied allegations that director Louis Uccellini physically assaulted a staff meteorologist for mentioning “cooling” during a 2014 presentation on Earth’s climate.
“This alleged incident never happened,” NWS spokeswoman Susan Buchanan told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Dr. Uccellini encourages open discussion on all science issues and perspectives, and he has never had a physical altercation with anyone in his 40-year career.”
Buchanan responded to a report published by Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) alleging Uccellini “put his hand on the meteorologist’s chest as a warning, and pushed the employee against the wall,” according to an NWS meteorologist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“I was giving a talk to fellow NWS staff about the jet stream flow in the upper atmosphere. What it showed was large amplitude waves in both the northern and southern hemispheres,” the meteorologist told CFACT.
“I explained that the only way the jet stream could get to be high amplitude is if the atmosphere was actually cooling,” the meteorologist said.
“Right at the bathroom break, the Director of NWS, Louis Uccellini, put a hand on my chest and pushed me up against the wall and said ‘Don’t ever mention the word cooling again,’” the meteorologist said. “He did not mean it in a ‘joking’ way, he absolutely violated my personal space and was dead serious. This was back in 2014.”
They’ll have to relocate the Cheboygan Music Conservatory at this rate.
Or, learn cool Jazz.
