The percent of the US to reach 95F sometime this summer has been the lowest on record.

The percent of days over 95F has been close to the lowest on record.

And the press says we are having an unprecedented heatwave.

    Tony – please clarify: when you produce the many graphs entitled “percent of days above XX degrees at all Historical Climatology Network Stations” is it safe to assume that you only include stations’ data which have consistently reported over the full ~120 year period? The reason for the question is that the data could be skewed over time if those stations which were abandoned had a geographical trend – e.g., if abandoned stations had a tendency to run warm/located southerly. Thanks!!

    We have a cottage on a lake in Central Ontario, just south of Algonquin Provincial Park. Each year, I place a thermometer in the lake beside my dock, about 2 feet below the surface and out of the sunlight.
    By early August (now), the lake temperature is always in a range between 73F and 78F. Today, the lake temp is 71F, the lowest I can remember in my 40 years of doing this.
    Also, July has been one of the wettest Julys in some time.
    Must be all that Global Warming.

      Good work Dave …. as a native of Ottawa (now in Calgary) I appreciate your one man cottage country climate measurement. I think the alarmists are losing the plot now and at times you see the true anti-capitalist or even pro commie sentiment sneaking through in their news releases.
