July in the USA ends on a frigid note as record cold outpaces warmth nearly 10 to 1

NOAA forecast shows lows into the 30’s and 40’s for much of the norther and western USA will likely continue. Where’s that global warming when we need it?


Total Records: 1295
High Temp: 47
Low Temp: 451
Low Max Temp: 671
High Min Temp: 126

Also interesting to note that high min temps out number High temps almost 3 to 1 ( 126 vs 47 to be specific). Looks like a UHI signal to me. It would be interesting to look at a series of these record plots over time & see if that trend is consistent. It would surprise me if it wasn’t.

Temperatures above 80 N latitude have dropped to freezing quite a bit early. Looks like a very short summer in the Arctic.

July 30, 2013 9:14 pm

I think one of the reasons it has been record high lows in Arizona is that it has been quite humid this summer so far and when it’s humid here it is quite warm at night. All in all, it has been a beautiful summer so far…not too hot!

July 30, 2013 9:17 pm

Just checked temps for Canberra for July. Certainly looks pretty warm. It would be interesting to know how much is UHI. Guess we will never know.
Here in the SW of Oz it’s been a really cold winter including July. Will be interested to see the Global temp for July from UAH and RSS, when the figures are in.

The actual question to ask might rather be, where did the heat go? Its still out there.
One answer is, the circum-polar regions, which have been consistently running consistently above normal. I’d also look at some of the sea surface temperatures in the Arctic and North Atlantic, which in some areas are amazingly high:
Low temperature records don’t indicate an end to climate change; they indicate an unsettled climate. Look at the long term trends before jumping to conclusions.

It has not been a summer in Southern Ontario. We had 4 days of warm weather, when Torontonians blew up the grid with their air conditioners. The only thing that saved Ontario was the 6 Coal plants that were previously closed and are now slated to close for sure at the end of this year. I have no idea what they will do next year for electricity. I think we might stay in the Bahamas next summer rather than coming back here for winter. They have dependable electricity there.

July 30, 2013 9:29 pm

“where did the heat go? Its still out there.”
Yeah we know.. Its hiding in the recesses of the AGW bletherens’ minds, or deep in the oceans sitting there waiting to pounce out at the unwary.!
Meanwhile the temperature above 80N is below the 40 year average and dropping fast.

July 30, 2013 9:30 pm

Here in southeast Alabama, we just completed a thirty-one day stretch where the day’s high failed to reach the average high. On July 30th, the high was 92ºF, which is the average high for that day. If the forecast for July 31st pans out, we will have completed the calendar month of July without exceeding the daily high a single time and only touching it once.

July 30, 2013 9:32 pm

And the long term trends show we are over the natural 60-70 year peak, and heading downwards.

July 30, 2013 9:36 pm

ColdinOz says:
“Just checked temps for Canberra for July. Certainly looks pretty warm. ”
Most of that is probably from the political climate 🙂
We have had a few warmish winter days down on the coast when the Sun gets a decent showing during the day, but its still noticeably winter at night time.

July 30, 2013 9:52 pm

This is normal for this part of the 18.6 year lunar declinational cycle coupled with low solar activity.
Take a look at the usual temperatures from the past four cycles on my forecast maps, been posted for over a Year in the current format. Scan forward and back a couple weeks of daily maps you will see the break in the SW drought came right on schedule.
And all of the heavy rain on the East coast past couple weeks was forecast as well.

July 30, 2013 9:54 pm

For those who watch these things, the temperature north of 80 is the lowest this summer than in the 54 years of the record…..
Not a trend, but just saying……

July 30, 2013 9:55 pm

@ Jeff Allen The actual question to ask might rather be, where did the heat go? Its still out there.
You might equally ask where does the heat come from. Most heat waves are associated with the temporary inhibition of convection typical in high pressure systems and due to an adiabatically created ceiling acting much like the glass in a greenhouse. When that weather dynamic stops the heat is carried up and away. The heat wave only created a statistical rise in temperatures. It doesnt mean heat was stored anywhere, CO2 does not trap heat, it only delays it return to space.When the heat wave is over it doesnt mean it is still out there.
Pressure systems do push warmer air northward and cooler air southward. The strength of the Icelandic Low drives warm air and water into the Barents Sea and pushes cold air down along the west coast of Greenland. That heat temporarily raises local temperatures then the heat radiates back to space. It is not still out there.
Your question is better asked of the divergence between maximum and minimum temperatures. As seen for most of California’s Sierra Nevada their are opposing trends in daytime and night time temperatures.
Most of the global average has been driven by rising minimums, so where does that night time heat go in the day time? If the heat was stored then maximums should rise as well. The only other explanation is less heat is being added to the earth. Either way the earth is not overheating. Convection during the mid day when maximums are measure short circuits any greenhouse effect and carries the heat away. It is not still out there.

July 30, 2013 10:22 pm

For the month, the numbers look a little different. The rest of the month had record highs outpacing record lows. 602 to 422. Overall. the ratio for July is only 1.3:1, not 10:1 in favor of cooling.
But I am not surprised that Anthony could find at least one week this year (and it looks like one whole month even) where the records were in favor of cooling. Without checking, I will bet that the records for the year are in favor of warming.
(Interestingly, the ratio record high lows and record low highs are in favor of warming, by 1.3:1 for the month of July — the opposite of the trend for the simple highs and lows.)

July 30, 2013 10:37 pm

Allen, as Jim Steele points out high pressure highs and circulatory anomalies have nothing to do with CO2. The mechanism by which alarmists claim CO2 affects climate is a global warming. As a gas it expands and mixes making localised effects almost non-existent, discounting CO2 as a cause of circulatory convective extremes.
There is also the fact that ocean temperatures have not increased significantly and claiming heat can jump the surface layers to a depth of 2000 metres down is against the laws of thermodynamics.

July 30, 2013 10:38 pm

Check out last Saturday’s Weatherbell Joe Bastardi regarding the global temps.

Meanwhile in Australia, we’re apparently suffering from global warming…..
Though is it really “global warming” when only Australia is posting hot temp records? One thing I noticed in the article is a single reference to the true culprit….. warm surrounding oceans providing warm onshore winds.

What would produce both low Arctic air temperatures and warm Arctic SSTs (in the summer), as well as cool SH SSTs (in the winter)?
Answer: Reduced clouds
Global cloud cover is currently at its lowest for 20 years.

Just from observation watching the jet stream: http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=jetstream;sess= and the weather predictions from my location in West Germany (NRW) and my chili pepper plants: Fast changing weather conditions due to a chaotic jet stream pattern, Jet stream South, cold and wet, Jet stream North, warmer weather but…. still relative low night temperatures, even during the official five day heatwave we experienced last week (previous heat wave 2006) which ended with a night temperature of only 11 degrees last Friday.
Anyhow, my chili pepper plants absolutely need a minimum temperature of 15 degrees Celsius. The number of nights this summer with night temps of 15 degrees or higher can be counted on one hand. Last year the plants did very well outdoors. This year the plants simply refuse to grow and as it looks right now they won’t carry any chili peppers before the summer ends.

Howday Mate,
I agree weather is weather except when it isn’t. There are scientific reasons to expect cooling climate change. If I was the betting type and I had a farm I would bet the farm on significant global cooling. I suppose I would also bet on food shortages due to the global cooling and the extreme rainfall.
There is now peculiar cooling in the Arctic. (Check the past years when there was record sea ice in the Arctic.) http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/meant80n.uk.php There is now record sea ice in Antarctic for every month of the year. http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/S_stddev_timeseries.png
There was been a significant change to what could be the mother of all climate forcing variables, the sun. There is a very long list of reasons to expect the planet will cool due to the current change to the sun. Here is the Coles note summary.
There is in the paleo climate record a series of warming and cooling cycles that correlate with solar magnetic cycle changes, These warming and cooling cycles are called a Dansgaard-Oeschger cycle. There are nine (9) warm periods (D-O cycles) in this interglacial (same pattern of warming observed as warming in the last 70 years). It is known that in the past the sun was in a grand solar maximum during the nine (9) warm periods. The warming observed in the D-O cycle was completed reversed by cooling when the sun went into a Maunder like grand minimum. The D-O cycles continue into the glacial period and there are matching solar magnetic cycle changes in the glacial period. The specialists have traced 23 D-O cycles.
Greenland ice temperature, last 11,000 years determined from ice core analysis, Richard Alley’s paper.
It has been observed that the magnetic field strength of newly formed sunspots is decaying linearly. In the space age that has never been observed. There are not only less sunspots on the surface of the sun, the sunspots are becoming smaller and smaller and the lifetime of the each sunspot group is becoming less and less. There are no observed sunspots on the surface of the sun that have a magnetic field strength that is less than 1500 Gauss. That threshold – when sunspots will have a magnetic field strength of less than 1500 Gauss – will be reached by 2015. There is no physical, theoretical explanation for what is happening to the sun. The sun it appears is entering a peculiar Maunder like minimum. It is known that the solar magnetic cycle from time to time after a grand maximum (series of very active solar magnetic cycles) enters a grand minimum (no sunspots, very weak solar magnetic cycle, solar wind is reduced by a factor of two) for a period of 50 to 100 years. The typical cooling period is longer as the sun is slow to start up, 100 to 150 years.
The following graph, a comparison of the past solar cycles 21, 22, and 23 to the current peculiar solar magnetic cycle 24.
The regions that cool will be similar to the cooling that occurred in the Little Ice age. Due to the mechanisms the cooling will be more rapid and more sever.
The Little Ice Age (LIA) was a period of cooling that occurred after the Medieval Warm Period (Medieval Climate Optimum).[1] While it was not a true ice age, the term was introduced into the scientific literature by François E. Matthes in 1939.[2] It has been conventionally defined as a period extending from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries,[3][4][5] or alternatively, from about 1350 to about 1850,[6] …. ….Hubert Lamb said that in many years, “snowfall was much heavier than recorded before or since, and the snow lay on the ground for many months longer than it does today.”[24] Many springs and summers were cold and wet, but with great variability between years and groups of years. Crop practices throughout Europe had to be altered to adapt to the shortened, less reliable growing season, and there were many years of dearth and famine (such as the Great Famine of 1315–1317, although this may have been before the LIA proper).[25] According to Elizabeth Ewan and Janay Nugent, “Famines in France 1693–94, Norway 1695–96 and Sweden 1696–97 claimed roughly 10% of the population of each country. In Estonia and Finland in 1696–97, losses have been estimated at a fifth and a third of the national populations, respectively.”[26] Viticulture disappeared from some northern regions. Violent storms caused serious flooding and loss of life. Some of these resulted in permanent loss of large areas of land from the Danish, German and Dutch coasts.[24]
Kreutz et al. (1997) compared results from studies of West Antarctic ice cores with the Greenland Ice Sheet Project Two (GISP2) and suggested a synchronous global Little Ice Age.[46] An ocean sediment core from the eastern Bransfield Basin in the Antarctic Peninsula shows centennial events that the authors link to the Little Ice Age and Medieval Warm Period.[47] The authors note “other unexplained climatic events comparable in duration and amplitude to the LIA and MWP events also appear.”

The area where the records were set is roughly the shape of the last glaciation.

July 31, 2013 2:43 am

I for one am grateful for that orb in the sky that Raincouver has missed so often.
“Vancouver has surpassed its previous record for sunniest month ever after racking up more than 388.1 hours of glorious sunshine by 8 a.m. PT Tuesday morning.
According to Environment Canada, Vancouver’s previous record for the sunniest month was set in July of 1985.
Assuming there is no rain on Wednesday, this July will also be first time on record a whole calendar month was completely dry in Vancouver.
Although a few showers have been noted on the North Shore today, none have reached down to the Vancouver International Airport weather station, where the record run is underway.
After that, the next record to shoot for is the longest dry spell. The record of 58 days was set in 1951.
So far this summer the city of rain has had no preciptation for 33 days in a row, Environment Canada confirmed on Tuesday morning, but there is rain in the forecast for the end of the week. ”
“Vancouverites have been walking on sunshine for the whole of July as the month breaks records Wednesday and becomes the sunniest and possibly the driest the city has ever been.
Vancouver has had almost 400 hours of sunlight in July, surpassing the 388-hour record set in 1985.
And if not a single drop of rain falls by 11 p.m. Wednesday, July will also become the city’s driest month ever.
“This has been the most ideal weather I’ve ever experienced. We get to walk, cycle and garden all day,” said Garry Wolfater, who moved to Vancouver 38 years ago. “I wouldn’t mind having this until November.”
Like Vancouver, Victoria is also on the brink of breaking its record for sunniest and driest month ever recorded with 422 hours of sun and a rainless July.
But while the dry, sunny spell has allowed residents to bask under the sun longer, Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones said the extreme weather has had some negative effects on the environment.
“It’s been a fabulous month for weather but for forest fires and water supply, not so much,” Jones said.
The number of wildfires in B.C. is on the rise.
Wildfire services have attended to 547 fires, which have burnt through a total of 5,770 hectares of land to date, said spokeswoman Navi Saini.
Vancouver is on high forest fire alert but parts of the Lower Mainland have been put under extreme alert.
Kamloops has even issued a campfire and open burning ban Tuesday since wildfires on the region have displayed “aggressive behaviour,” according to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
Saini said they’re considering closing some parks and trails during the long weekend.
Water supply in Metro Vancouver, though still on normal range, is also slightly lower than previous years.
Currently at 85 per cent, reservoir levels are usually replenished by rainfall this time of year.
However, rain, which is the primary source for refilling reservoirs, has been sorely lacking in the city.
Despite the prolonged heat, crops like berries, cherries and vegetables have been surprisingly plentiful this summer.
“The sunshine has generally led to good results for B.C. farmers so far, with lots of local berries and vegetables for sale at farms and in the marketplace,” said agriculture minister Pat Pimm.
Environment Canada has not issued any air quality warnings through the month as the air’s been “fairly fresh,” according to Jones.
“Because we’re in the south coast, going 33 days without rain is pretty manageable for people,” Jones said.
Currently averaging between the low and upper 20s, the Lower Mainland’s climate has to rise to mid or upper 30s before it gets uncomfortable, he said.
But whether it’s good or bad, Vancouver’s current weather is still definitely one for the books, Jones said.
“It’s part of the ebb and flow of the south coast,” he said. “Meteorologists and probably lots of people will never forget this July.”

Not a trend, but just saying……

There is still probably some more legacy warm water from the recent el Nino decades flowing Arctic-wards for us to have the phenomenon of warm water in an atmospherically cooling Arctic, thus the very big swings we are seeing between high winter ice area and low summer ice minima in recent years. In a few years the warm water will run out and Arctic ice will recover. Even this year will be interesting to watch.

We spent all weekend and the early week here in KC with our AC off and our window open. That’s unheard of in late July and early August. It was comfortable, too. Unlike other years, I’m actually looking forward to that first football game at the end of August if the weather stays like this. I wonder how soon that first real cold snap is going to take to set in. We might be pulling out coats early this year.
Of course, when we go to MN for vacation next week, the kids may not be so comfortable swimming, but the fishing ought to be good with the cooler water and weather.

July 31, 2013 6:56 am

I believe with all my heart that man made global warming is a farce. For as long as the earth has existed, there have been cyclical periods of warming & cooling. I live in Memphis, TN, where it has been unbearably hot for many years. This summer has been more like what I remember growing up here. We’ve had lows dipping into the 60’s & highs anywhere from high 70’s to 80’s for many days. We have had temps closer to normal in the mid 90’s, as well. But, after a few days, a cold front comes through bringing us rain & cooler temps. I’ve had my windows open on several days & nights this summer; I can’t remember being able to do that since I was young.

Farmers in the upper Midwest are concerned about the low temps, both night and day, because crops got planted so late this year due to the wet spring. Now the corn, especially, needs hot weather to catch up, although a lot of corn acreage was switched to shorter-maturity corn. Early July helped, but the 10-day forecast is for more unseasonably cool weather, and growers are starting to fear an early frost as well.
Actually, taxpayers that should be concerned too. The farm programs are probably generous enough to bail out most of the growers regardless of their crop outcomes. For example, I know they (we) were paying growers several hundred dollars an acre to leave some ground unplanted when it got too late to plant. An early frost could cost taxpayers a pile of money this year, and those who get a crop will do very, very well.
An early frost would also add an interesting twist to the debate about running 30-40% of the typical corn crop through our vehicles…

The temperatures North of 80 degrees North (i.e. in the Arctic) have been below normal all year, and are about to go below freezing again quite a bit earlier than usual. Check the DMI temperature plot on the Sea Ice Reference page here. Also, Antarctic Sea Ice has been at record levels for over two years running now, and temperatures have been below normal in the vast majority of the Antarctic for quite some time as well, so where, exactly, are these warm circumpolar temperatures that you are referring to???
Of course the heat “went somewhere”… most likely radiated out to space through the ToA. We are in a cooling phase now, and it is going to get stronger.

“North Texas is experiencing a “nothing special” summer, but it’s lows are really nice, and have been more or less staying under or around 80 at night. ”
I beg to differ. We had record lows and record low highs the week of July 4th and it was in the upper 80s last week for two days with a north wind. Very unusual for North Texas.

I can see it now – warmist spin on the arctic sea ice freezing all the way to 30 degrees north this fall – “there is a record amount of fragile first year ice and smallest percentage on record of multi year ice.” Then when next summer thaws back to only 50 degrees north “record area of ice melt in one season.”
Other than the 1-2 week of warm lows due to humidity- at or just above 70 IMBY southern PA – its been mainly pleasant with some nights down into the 50s. I am just now getting tomatoes to pick – almost a month behind last year. 2013 is running way behind 2012 in avg temp.

Canberra not hottest on record: was equalled in 1924 at Queenbeyan, pretty much the same place.
