US Has Half As Many 100 Degree Days As It Did Eighty Years Ago

Summers in the US have gotten much less extreme since the 1930s, with only half as many 100ºF readings as eighty years ago. The current year had the second fewest 100ºF readings on record, just behind 2004, only only one seventh as many as 1936.

It should be noted that this metric is not subject to adjustment via TOBS or any of the other phony adjustments which NOAA does, and shows pretty clearly that US summer afternoons are getting cooler.

    Steven, would the diminishing numbers have anything to do with the decimation of the number of stations? I’m not saying there are more or less 100° days, just that the measurement system may have changed.

    Anyone who believes in catastrophic warming is totally delusional.
