    I used the ‘replace the two files’ method, worked just fine. Kept all my downloaded data that way, which is a huge time saver. Thanks stevengoddard, now I have to go pull back some new curtains.

  3. This is really fun to play with. Always been a fan of weather data.

    Hey Tony! I have been away for a bit, so I may have missed it, but is there a version of Pulling Back the Curtain for Linux? As always, thanks for all your hard work. You have really done something extraordinary!

    • I will release one at some point.

      Jason, I’ve been able to get it running under Linux using wine. I installed wine 1.8, then installed Qt 5.5 for Windows under wine (there are several 5.5 versions available, I installed the open source version), and then installed Steve’s program. Works fine, no problems. Let me know if i can help you get it going.

    Thanks. I’ll download the latest and replace my old version.

  6. Gonzo says:

    Hi Tony got v1.3. works fine. I’m here SoCal and noticed San Diego, LA and SF are not included in the data. Is there a reason for this. I know the one at Lindbergh field has been there a long time though UHI could be a real issue. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Boulder scientists warn planet nearing critical warming threshold
    ‘A very narrow window of opportunity’
    By Charlie Brennan
    Staff Writer

    Scientists at Boulder’s National Center for Atmospheric Research are cautioning that the planet is closer to potentially catastrophic warming than is widely believed.

    However, NCAR senior scientist Gerald Meehl believes the Earth is effectively already well beyond the 1 degree C that the planet is confirmed to have already warmed.

    Meehl gets support in his remarks from colleague Kevin Trenberth, distinguished senior scientist at NCAR — but Trenberth said “it’s actually worse” than Meehl has said.


    Read the whole thing. There are some worrisome contributions in the comment section. One commenter, for example, is glad she is “closer to the other side” and has no children.

    The prognosis for this patient is much worse than Drs. Meehl and Trenberth imagine. Her therapist would be well advised to complement his treatment methods with output from Version 1.4 but it may be too late for an effective intervention.

    Thanks Tony, great stuff! Out of curiosity, how does the program handle missing data (TMAX or TMIN value of -9999)?

    • I ignore all missing or bogus looking values.

      • pmc47025 says:

        It is an interesting problem. Maybe put Good and Bogus value counters in the box with the Average, Minimum, and Maximum temperatures (and abbreviate Avg, Min, Max)? Or maybe just a % of values discarded? Or a separate graph line with % discarded values by year? It wouldn’t fix the problem but you might get a FUBAR factor to look at for a particular station.

    SG, any idea what happened in 1977 on this one?

    Just some missing data, perhaps.?

    • AndyG55 says:

      Data file seems to have a whole heap of zeros rather than -9999s. for the missing data.

      Maybe something to look at.?

    • Probably missing data for that year

      Interesting grapf Days above 90F at Morrisville.

    • With a little better editing:

      And to think the poor sod was having a fit over it …

      • AndyG55 says:

        He will love that “days over 90F” graph 😉

      • AndyG55 says:

        CW or anyone. What would be the closest USHCN site to Plattsburgh?

        • AndyG55 says:

          That’s on the list on SG’s app.

        • I think it’s South Hero, VT (44.6264, -73.3031).

          There is also a nearby NY station down the shore from Plattsburgh in Peru, NY but it doesn’t show data. The South Hero station is over the state line in Vermont, about 8 miles east from Plattsburgh on Grand Isle in the middle of Lake Chaplain. It’s very rural. They say that even the local farms are organic and sustainable.

        • RAH says:

          Went way up there to Plattsburgh, NY my first winter driving a truck. Picked up a preloaded trailer heavy with large rolls of paper from a paper mill up there one very cold early dark morning. The drop lot was dirt/mud. It had been muddy when they dropped that loaded trailer there and the feet pads of the landing gear had sunk about 4″ into the mud before it had frozen solid in the sub zero temps. I was afraid that if I backed under it I would tear those feet right off the bottom of the landing gear so I spent a good bit of time with my pry bar and a 3 lb hammer chiseling those feet loose before I backed under the trailer. One doesn’t forget those kind of things and so since that’s my only impression of the place other than the fact that the radio reception up there was so bad it convinced me to get satellite radio, I have no real desire to go back.

        • RAH, you may want to reconsider. If the winters in fact warmed up there, you could test how much easier it is to chisel the feet pads out of the frozen mud at -14°F instead of -15°F.

  11. I saw an item headlined Glenwood Springs in the 2/15 Denver Post. Seems the area wildlife managers are concerned that the local owls, eagles, elk, assorted wild life in their personal charge are “scrounging” for forage due to the deep snow and need some supplemental feed. Why do (the royal) we presume to know what is best for nature? Feed them now so they can starve next fall? Is this the same snow our children would never see again? I maintain bird feeders in the front yard, does than make me a “wildlife manager?” Can I apply for a grant? Maybe instead of “climate scientists” the title should be “climate managers,” would make for higher pay grades.

    Regime change = repairing climate change
    CPP = WMDs

    Lying about things is a known cause of excessive sweating.

      That’s true when your talking about people that are generally honest and have a conscience. I don’t believe the current president has either of those traits though.
