NCDC claims that January-May temperatures in Michigan were fourth coldest through the first five months of 2014. This can’t possibly be correct, as the Great Lakes blew away all records for ice cover through the end of May.
The raw data shows that January-May temperatures in Michigan were the coldest, by a wide margin.
NOAA generated their fake map through an amazing hockey stick of adjustments of 3.5 degrees in Michigan. By massively cooling the past and warming present, they tried to fool Great Lakes ice into believing that the freezing point of water has changed.
