Plummeting May 25 Temperatures In The US

May 25th temperatures have been declining in the US since the 19th century, with recent years among the coolest.


On May 25, 1911 most of the US east of the Rockies was above 90 degrees., with 100 degree temperatures in Oklahoma, Illinois and South Carolina.

On May 25, 1967 there was a very intense heatwave centered over Nebraska, with Hartington, Nebraska reaching 107 degrees, and many surrounding states over 100 degrees.

    I love these posts Tony, but I’m always wondering why you don’t (at least occasionally) do it for, say yesterday or so, and compare the “above 80, or 90” from long ago, to current? Would love to see the “Above 80” for May 25, 2018 next to the other two.

      It would be impossible to do that before the May 25, 2018 data exists.

        Ha – I know that. Why I said “yesterday.” . . or as soon as the data is available. Just thinking that could be a powerful pic – side by side; especially following news shrill about some hot weather. Cheers.

        Actually – shouldn’t the two graphs above be for May 1895-2017?

    It is interesting to note that corresponding with the May 25, 1967 heatwave, there was a record late season snowfall in New England, with as much as 9″ at low elevations in southwest New Hampshire. Talk about a loopy jet stream!

    Yet alarmists promise if we give up our cars and our use of evil electricity, return to a 16th Century lifestyle and lower CO2 to 1967 levels, our climate will be Heaven on Earth. Hardly the case!

    Yup, Global warming at its best.

      That’s why the climate did not change
      but we changed global warming for climate change.

      As long it was just global warming people could beat us with our own weapons as half of the anomalies belonged to the cold side.
      But – Since we use the term climate change we monopolised the arguement(everything we do is about monopols and controle).
      No it does not matter wether it is too hot or too cold-everything is climate change and we are 100% right.
      We did this name-change trick already when we changed the term communism
      to pro progressivism.
      It is still the same fascist intolerant and inflamatory monopolistic controle system that uses minorities and pathological activists to subjugate majorities
      -but since we changed the name we are 100% right.

    Here in Milwaukee, we are enjoying some 90° weather for a change. So far the geese in the park across the way, don’t have any goslings. I’m thinking that event is way over due. In fact I’m wondering if the cold spring we’ve had up until today froze the geese out? I’d make a terrible “Scientist” I’ve never kept track of the first day we see goslings, but I”m rather sure the event is very late if it’s going to happen at all.

      We almost got there today. It was a sweaty kind of day today here in NE Indiana. Joe Bastardi says that odds are this May will probably be the hottest for the US on record. That does not compute though based on the temps from 1934 and 36 that Tony has posted here.
