Yesterday I did a post pointing out that most of the really hot temperature records in Canada occurred 1936 to 1941.
Today I noticed that Jeff Masters at Wunderground was claiming it never got this hot in Fort McMurray before in May.
I’ll just post a few quick facts.
- The monthly data for Fort McMurray only goes back to 1944. I doubt daily goes further back.
- The really hot years were the 1936 – 1941 years. So temperature records missed the 1936-1941 period.
Here are the ten warmest May’s (in terms of TX = Tmax) in For McMurray from 1944 on.
