    First graph, how do you have more stations above 100F than their are stations? 150%?

    Looking at the “June 28 Percent Of Hot US Historical Climatology Network Stations” graph, how can some years have a value of over 100%?

      I think you did not see Tony’s answer to Kelvin above because it posted just 1 minute before your own question.

    Hello Tony! I have more of a question than a comment. Over the years I enjoyed looking at the daily forecast at the weather channels web page. There I saw a graphical representation of highs and lows for the current date/month, along with other traces showing RECORD highs and lows for that period. It even showed dates for those statistics. Now the website does not show historical information, and my “smart” phone shows N/A for record highs and lows in the daily forecast. It seems like the information is being hidden, when did this practice start? I link your videos to friends and family and am dismayed at the level of rejection. Keep up the good fight.
