Plummeting August 9 Temperatures In The US

Over the last century, August 9th maximum temperatures have plummeted in the US, with the hottest years occurring in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Here are some of the top August 9 heatwaves going back to 1896.

On this date in 1928, almost the entire US was over 90 degrees.

It was 114 degrees in Arkansas and 113 degrees in Illinois on this date in 1930.

It was 114 degrees in Nebraska, and 113 degrees in Illinois and Iowa on this date in 1934.

    I read this post at 8 am EDT on August 9, 2018, and the graphs have August 9 2018 on the heading. Today’s temps can’t be in the graphs. Please explain.

    East St. Louis hit 117 July 14th 1954. So hot that streets buckled, 20 people died that day of heat related illness.

    We will see temps like this again, maybe soon. I fear people will blame CO2, and Jim Hanson et al will say I told you so. Then government will impose an insane carbon tax that will only hurt the most vulnerable in our society.

    I understand your frustration. A suggestion: Visualize the end of this insanity. Don’t predict the continuation of it.
