According to the NOAA, October 2016 Tmax in the USA was 117th warmest out of 122. 122 wast warmest.
1963 was warmest. 1947, 1950, 1953 and 1938 were also warmer than 2016.
(I publish Tmax instead of Tavg because I believe much of the US warming is UHI making the evenings warmer which shows up in the Tmin)
According to the NOAA, September 2016 Tmax in the USA was only 100th warmest out of 122.
1998 was warmest. But 1922 was 2nd and 1953 3rd.
I think CO2 has forsaken September.
1was warmest with 1936 and 1937 a very close 2nd and 3rd.
According to the NOAA, August 2016 Tmax in the USA was only 85th warmest out of 122.
2011 was warmest with 1936 and 1937 a very close 2nd and 3rd.
July in the USA max temp graph looks like the 1930s (but not quite as warm).
Kinda looks like the AMO
NOAA just put out the USA temperature for June 2016.
Lets compare Tmin (minimum) versus Tmax (maximum)
Wow. Tmin has been skyrocketing since 1980. Tmax has just gone up and down.
I suggest UHI (Urban Heat Islands) not “Global Warming”.
According to the NOAA, May 2016 was ranked 49th coldest out of 122.
That is essentially a tie with May 2015. The warmest May Tmax’s were 1934, 1936, 2012 and and 1939.
The following map shows state rankings. 122 = warmest. 1 would be coldest.
Note the states ranked 7th and 8th coldest. Wow. Not much El Nino effects …
Above average precipitation in large parts of the USA for April 2016.
