A slight diversion from the Warming Hole Series. Washington State is not in the Warming Hole. And the NOAA says there is a warming trend from 1895 to 2012. That trend is a microscopic 0.05 degF / Decade. Because I know from other blog posts that the West Coast started cooling in the mid-1980s, I thought I would see which year the climate shifted even with the hopelessly biased NOAA data.
And it was around 1986. -0.39 degF / Decade.
