US Weather Is Getting Better

The area of the country affected by very hot days or very cold nights has been declining since the 1930’s.

The frequency of very hot and very cold weather is also decreasing.

The trend is similar for both very hot days and very cold nights.

Additionally, the frequency of US hurricane strikes (which peaked in the 1880’s) is down 25% since the Civil War and is now at historic lows

HURDAT Re-analysis

This is the exact opposite of the propaganda being put out by government agencies, whose job is to push the climate change scam, not report facts.

    You have presented tons of evidence that the claims of “extreme weather” have not only been exaggerated, but are actually showing a decline. Tornadoes also seem less frequent as well.

    But as always, sooner or later some major weather disaster will take place. When it does, you can guarantee that the usual alarmist buzzards will circle and say the world is coming to an end, unless we increase their funding ten fold and immediately switch to a one world communist totalitarian dictatorship, with skeptics rounded up and shot on sight!

      Tornados are down again this year though there was a pretty high spike in Feb. Over 100 less than the average as of yesterday. There have been only three EF-3 tornadoes so far this year and no EF-4s or 5s.

      So it’s looking like 2016 will be another year with tornadoes well below average.

        CRAP! click on the graph to get the most recent graph which I was referring to. WordPress archive does it again.

      Hey RAH, trying link with different capitalizations in first part of URL

      that was http://Www.sPc.noaA.gov

      • RAH says:

        I’ll do that next time if I can remember Neal. Thanks!

      • Neal S says:

        You just need to pick a different set of capitalizations from previously for that URL. I just encoded the date 4/21 as binary in the first three dot separated portions of the URL. I realize that this scheme is not perfect as you cannot encode above 9 for the month, but I would just pretend as if the fourth bit were there. Chances of a collision are low.

    Houston threatened by storms.

    The drop in maxima is global, at ca.- 0.13K since 2000 and normally it drags means and minima downward as well. However, new vegetation (plants, trees, lawn) traps some heat. This is a local thing and can be clearly observed in places like Las Vegas where minima have jumped. This is where they changed a desert into an oasis.
    So depending on how you chose your stations (globally unbalanced, where people are starting to expand, wanting greenery, gardens and crops) you would see a trend of an improving climate.
    That is the irony of it all: the greener earth gets, the warmer it gets…..
    So maybe, after all my research, I must say there is some AGW?

    Dont you know Steve, its the lack of extreme weather that is driving all of the extreme weather!

  5. The Tanana river ice breakup watch started at the Nenana Ice Classic 2016. This year is the 100th anniversary of the event.

    I think the locals are not unhappy that it’s sunny this week with daily highs in mid-50s and nights just above freezing.

    As of April 18th, 2016

    The clock is hooked up and the watchmen are on duty 24/7 until the Tanana River ice moves the Tripod 100 feet to stop the clock and give us a winner(s).

    Ice measurements will no longer be taken due to the condition of the ice, it is no longer safe for us to go out onto the ice to take measurements. The last measurement taken for 2016 was on April 14th the ice was 32.3 inches thick.

    The Nenana River ice went out in the late evening of April 19th. The flow from the Nenana River is cutting a channel into the Tanana River ice below the Tripod. Up river about 3/4 of a mile from the Tripod, there are holes in the ice opening up. The ice is rotting at a very rapid rate. With the warmer temperatures, we will see the ice starting to deteriorate rapidly. We are expecting the Tanana River ice to breakup within the next couple of days.

    The forecast for this week is as follows; temperatures are supposed to be in low 60’s during the day and staying above freezing in the evenings. If this forecast is correct, the ice will go very fast.

    This page will be updated daily as changes occur on the ice and until the Tanana River breaks up and stops the clock.
