Declining June 24 Temperatures In The US

It is cold and wet here in Boulder today, but on the day after Hansen’s testimony in 1988, Boulder was 98 degrees. June 24 heat has been declining in the US for a century, with a sharp drop in the frequency of hot days about 60 years ago.

    It’s nearly 30F below “normal” at my house right now, but for global warming (that’s a joke) it would be.

    Just wondering why in the last map, Tony has above 100 F for 1933.

    The legend on top shows 90 F for 1988, 100 F for 1933 and 110 F for 1988.

    Is this meant to be a comparison with 1933 which was also quite hot, or did 1933 sneak in instead of above 100 F for 1988? I also noticed that in the video recently made at about the 3:50 mark or so.

    June 1933 was extremely hot in the US Corn Belt. Even though July and August 1933 were close to normal, the June heat reduced the crop considerably.

    The weather this year so far has been very friendly to the Corn Belt. Lots of rain and temperatures warm, but not excessively hot. 84% of the crop is now in good to excellent condition.
