Twenty Hottest Six Month Periods In US History

Someone gave me a good laugh this morning here when they commented that the last six months was the “hottest in US history.”

Weird, and I was thinking that would more likely happen during the summer. Here are the actual hottest six month periods in US history (based on USHCN daily data) with the listed month being the end month of the period.
