Wisconsin Climate Becoming Much Milder


The frequency of extreme temperatures (hot and cold) in Wisconsin has plummeted since 1988 when NASA’s James Hansen warned that extreme temperatures would increase.

In 1936, almost one day out of five was either over 90F or below 0F. Recently the frequency of extreme temperatures has been about half of 1936.

    I live just north of Milwaukee, and I can tell you that the winters are warmer and thhe summers are cooler compared to when I was a kid in the ’50s & ’60s.

    Oh, Happy New Year Tony, and God bless you for all you do

      Happy New Year Steve, and Tony! All the best in next warmest year ever, 2016.

      Same goes for the rest of the usual suspects here, and you know who you are.

    Hey Tony! Instead of the red circle, it would be great if you could place Hansen’s head on top of that spike, so to speak.

  4. Doug Rogalla will appreciate that. I wonder when he’s gonna adopt a milder public demeanor. 🙂

  5. “In 1936, almost one day out of five was either over 90F or below 0F.” In 2015, here in Kendall, WI (SW WI), we had five 90F+ days + 30 below zero days. Even though December was quite mild as compared to averages; February was even colder than December was warm. For the year, every day’s low was 1.4F below avg + highs were -0.7F below avg. So much for the warmest year ever.

      Here in mid North Carolina we have not seen a day over 100F since 2004. In 2013 there were only five days 90°F and above — one day at 95°F and 4 days at 91°F. That is darn cold for around here.

      In 2014 we had 21 days from 90°F to 95°F and one at 96°F and one at 97°F. 2015 was similar with a couple days at 98°F. These are the type of summers I was seeing in New England before I moved. Several days in the upper 80s low 90s with a few days popping above 95°F.

      I live in said part of France. In 2003 we had 3 months of temps 35°c or over. This year NO days over 35 °C. Our average day max temps are 5°C higher than southern/Eastern UK.

      So it is not just the USA. Of course after the Climate Chiroprators at NOAA got through with our temperatures, measured at a new state of the art weather station, the five days 90°F and above had miraculously TRIPLED to fifteen.
