It is exactly this type of analysis that goes right over the heads of people like chris, respectfully.
Here is a graphic I created from NOAA data which shows established state records by decade. Only 18 high temperature records have been set or tied since 1951. While 24 low temperature records have been set or tied over the same length of time. Hell will freeze over before NOAA will put up a graphic showing this distribution.
Wow, thanks I’ve save a copy.
Saving a copy to your machine would be the way to go. I don’t know how long tinypic keeps links available. It does seem to be quite awhile though. Feel free to use the graphics for your own purposes.
Here are a couple graphics I made of the NOAA data a few years ago which shows state records for individual months. Last year shown is 2008.

Since I only show the most recent record in the case of ties, many of the records shown were actually first established early in the 20th century. e.g. The year 2000 shows 17 high records, but 12 of those records were first established prior to that year.
