July in the USA max temp graph looks like the 1930s (but not quite as warm).
Kinda looks like the AMO
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 …
According to the NOAA, April 2016 was ranked 24th warmest out of 122 in terms of Maximum.
Did you know 1946 was the 2nd warmest April?
