Smokin Summer in the US

Filed under: Climate Change — Matt Dernoga @ 9:12 pm

I’ve always liked to view temperature change by taking the aggregation of record highs and lows in the US around the country.  For example, see this incredible chart below from Capital Climate

The ratio of record highs to lows for September?  Over 5:1!

How does that compare to the previous few decades?

The 2000-2010 decade was the warmest on record globally, and it averaged over a 2:1 ratio of highs to lows.  September blows past that, as do other months in the summer.
