The NOAA “Hot Winter”

NOAA says winter in the US was hot, at 33.4F (1C.)

The winter temperature was 33.4 degrees F (1.2 degrees above average), ranking it among the hottest third of winters on record, with warmer-than-average temperatures across the Deep South, the Southeast and parts of New England.

Most water based life forms don’t consider one degree above the freezing point to be hot. And most also don’t consider dangerous life threatening cold to be hot.

Few people consider a record cold -38 degrees to be hot.

The Sonoran Desert had multiple snowstorms this winter, not a good indicator of heat.

Great Lakes ice cover is nearly double normal, and one of the highest on record. Ice is not a good proxy for heat.

So let’s look at how NOAA created this latest fraud. Across the US, winter was 65th warmest (below average) since 1895 – but through the magic of data tampering, NOAA turned it into 36th warmest.

NOAA data tampering has created nearly two degrees of imaginary warming since 1940.


More than 50% of the winter 2019 adjusted data is “estimated” – meaning it came from a computer model instead of a thermometer.  NOAA can produce any number which suits their agenda through their non-scientific data practices.

The “heat” exists entirely inside the crooked minds of government scientists. Without fossil fuels, they would be freezing and starving in the dark – just like everyone else.

    Oddly, the CONUS Climate Reference System, also run by NOAA, shows winter 2018/19 temperatures to be about average overall and very low in February. But then, the Reference System data are unadjustable since it comes from pristine far-from-human monitoring stations uniformly distributed around the country.

    The adjustocene marches on.

    “Basically, they are opposed to approximately 98.5 percent of all the electricity that we are all using and nearly 100 percent of all the vehicle and transportation and ships and planes that we are using,” Moore told Carlson. “So when I tweeted the other day and had a huge response- over 3 million impressions on Twitter, when I said ‘You don’t have a plan to feed 8 billion people without fossil fuels or get the food into the cities where it’s needed.

    I’d really like to know how the AGW cultist who live in the USA and experienced the cold cold winter feel when they read the NOAA bullshit
    and pretend to believe it.
    I’d also like to know how much of a cold winter reality they have to experience for themselves until they admitt that NOAA ist BS.

    Trofim Lysenko has been reincarnated–as commissar of NOAA’s temperature group:-(

    well it’s a darn good thing MT,WY,the upper plains states along with the entire upper midwest are such a small geographic area that they don’t have much of an effect of the national average, isn’t it. \

    • scott allen says:

      You have made an excellent point.
      The combine just those two states Mt. and Wy. have 242,652 square miles in area.
      The states of New York, Maine,Maryland,Vermont,New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and Rhode Island only comprise 129,116 square mile yet these states have more then 3 times the number of weather stations, the also are lower in elevation (warmer), with larger cities (urban heat islands) and closer to the moderation of the oceans.
      How can any one obtain an average temperature of the US with such a disparity in geographical locations.

    Reminds me of an old joke.

    A Polish farmer was informed by the government that his house rested virtually right on top of the border with the Soviet Union, and that surveyors would need to determine in which country his house actually resided. After careful measurements they determined that the farmer’s home was still in Poland. The farmer was jumping up and down, and was beside himself. One of the surveyors asked him if he was OK, and the farmer exclaimed, “Thank God I don’t have to deal with those Russian winters!”

    NOAA said “The winter temperature was 33.4 degrees F (1.2 degrees above average) ranking it among the hottest …”

    The key word is average. If you want to measure how hot it got then measure how hot it got. The average doesn’t say anything about the hottest or how hot it got.

    😂 Where? I have kept close watch on the temps in the northern hemisphere and especially North America this winter and saw vey cold temps that covered two thirds of the continent. Very cold air as far as Havanna dipping to 49 degrees Fahrenheit a few times. Maybe in some parts of Europe and Asia. Saw them being very cold as well. The center of the cold air is just wear of Hudson Bay. With temps as low as minus 45 where at the same time the north pole were in the minus single digits at the same time.

  9. DCA says:

    A question about the process NOAA uses, if you know.
    Assuming that they create the estimated temperatures first, do they average the estimated temperatures with the raw measured temperatures, and then adjust the average? Or do they adjust the raw measured temperatures and the estimated temperatures, and then average them? Or do they follow some other permutation of sequences?

    In what is oftentimes a tireless and seemingly thankless job I just wanted to make sure you know it is not unappreciated. As a meteorologist and college professor I have been going to your site as a go-to on this issue over the last several months. Your dedication is amazing.

    Here is a facebook message I received from an individual just yesterday:

    “Share with all your right wing fascist friends who believe in only rights for the 1% and the rest living in squalor in polluted unbreathable weather with no schools, parks, museums, public beaches, safe food and water, hospitals or transportation for the rest.”

    My response: “I think i know a thing or two about fascism my friend. Having survived the horrors of the last two socialist experiments of the 20th Century (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics aka U.S.S.R and National Socialists aka Nazis). Praying to G-d to save us from a third.”

    • gregole says:

      WxProf, Have you pessimistic Facebook poster check out this website: ttps://

      More poverty has been eliminated since the 1980s than in all history. We live in exciting times. Oh. And the weather is great! CO2 is plant food.

  11. WxProf says:

    Here is a thought that came to mind the other day. Share if you would like.

    Over the recent months and after doing a lot more research than ever before I think we need to look at a new and unfortunately more accurate definition (that I am proposing) of the issue of our times –

    Climate Change: Weaponization of the weather to scare the people into submission and to push through a political agenda that has nothing to do with stopping the weather they are taking advantage of in the first place.

    This is the real collusion between the media, academia and foreign organizations that needs to be investigated.

    – Not a political pundit, just an actual meteorologist and former citizen of the Soviet Union and survivor of the horrors of the last two socialist experiments of the last 100 years (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics aka USSR and the National Socialists aka Nazis).

    If we keep silent now will we ever be allowed to speak again?

    The data is on the side of climate realism. Use it, make it known and become more informed while it is still available.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey WxProf! Thanks for speaking out. The world can use people of your experience and historical knowledge. The truth may not always be appreciated by those around us, but it always worth standing up for.

    WHY IS THIS HAPPENING ? !!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Psalmon says:

    Here is the one to watch…Upper Colorado River Basin Snow chart.

    In 2016 Climate Central warned: “What we’re seeing now is that, consistent with more of the global observations in terms of warming, that it’s not just a fluctuation that’s within that historical back and forth,” Prairie said. “That oscillation is starting to break from that range.”

    Based on the past 7 years and this year, it looks like we will have 2 well above normal years, 2 about normal years, and 3 well below normal years. This is what CC calls without oscillation.

    Lake Mead and Lake Powell are low because of overuse and over diversion. It took 17 years for Lake Powell to fill with an average inflow of 10.9 MAF/yr (based on Lake Powell website data) Lakes Mead and Powell added 32 MAF during that time. In the past 17 years, the average inflow has been 8.9 MAF/yr, yet the lakes have lost a combined 35 MAF (would have been equal levels full in the 60s and 70s).

    Hopefully this year mother nature will solve the problem for us for a while. The MJO has doubled back and the region and the US should stay cold thru spring. The current storm should add another couple inches here…if the snowpack endures into April and May we could have a big flood year like 1983 or 84. That will go a long way to filling the system, but it will remain 20MAF short unless El Nino delivers a second year.

    One to watch.

    • Psalmon says:

      2019 flirting with Maximum all time type numbers…notice how the cold and build needs to continue thru April into May…sudden melts in late May maximize runoff.
