Coldest March In The US Since 1969?

The average March 2013 US temperature has actually been declining over the past week due to very cold weather, and is now just a whisker above being the coldest March since 1969. The warmest March occurred in 1910.

      The main phenomenon that influences our weather is the North Atlantic Oscillation. which can change from year to year. When it is more negative, it creates a lower pressure gradient between the Icelandic low and subtropical high. This allows the jet stream to drive further south, bringing down colder air. Last year it was in more a positive phase, thus the milder winter and spring. Nothing unusual here.

    Where are all the people with the Reverend Moon follower blank faces explaining how “fucked up wrong it is to think that a cold month of March isn’t consistent with what Climate Sciences says about global warming”?

  3. There is a mass of air currently at -40°F anomaly on its way… Check out Ryan Maue’s twitter feed for maps. It will warm a little before it gets here, but it will probably push the average down.

    We could set a record low on Wednesday morning here in the Orlando area. Forecast low for the morning is 39 degrees. The average low for the day is 55 degrees.

  5. “…The average March 2013 US temperature has actually been declining over the past week due to very cold weather, and is now just a whisker above being the coldest March since 1969. The warmest March occurred in 1910…”

    Oh, come on now – you know these are all unofficial values, and need several layers of “adjustment” before they’re released to the sheep.

    Before they’re done, we’ll be 20 or 30 degrees degrees above “normal”.
