NOAA May 2019

Climate Change Emergency Causes Droughts Flooding

May 2019 – Second Wettest May in US history

Wettest June to May (12 months) by 2.21 inches – All the dark green ones are state records.

May Average Temp – 0.7F below normal


NOAA February 2019 in Montana Was -15.6°F Below The Mean

According to the NOAA, Montana was -15.6F below the 1901-2000 mean

Norht Dakota was -14.8 below. South Dakota was -13.5F below.

Coldest February ever in Montana , South Dakota and North Dakota and 5 other states was 1936.

Feb 1936 looks very much like Feb 2019. I hope the summer of 2019 is not the same as the summer of 1936. That would be bad!!!!

NOAA: average global sea level rise rate of 1.7-1.8 mm/yr

The NOAA has updated its tide gauge data for 2018 and says theaverage global sea level rise rate is 1.7-1.8 mm/yr.

Thats a measly 5.6 inches by 2100. 

The map of relative sea level trends provides an overview of variations in the rates of local sea level change at long-term tide stations (based on a minimum of 30 years of data in order to account for long-term sea level variations and reduce errors in computing sea level trends based on monthly mean sea level).

The variations in sea level trends seen here primarily reflect differences in rates and sources of vertical land motion.

Areas experiencing little-to-no change in relative sea level are illustrated in green, including stations consistent with average global sea level rise rate of 1.7-1.8 mm/yr. These are stations not experiencing significant vertical land motion.

Stations illustrated with positive sea level trends (yellow-to-red) are experiencing both global sea level rise, and lowering or sinking of the local land, causing an apparently exaggerated rate of relative sea level rise.

Stations illustrated with negative trends (blue-to-purple) are experiencing global sea level rise and a greater vertical rise in the local land, causing an apparent decrease in relative sea level. These rates of relative sea level rise reflect actual observations and must be accounted for in any coastal planning or engineering applications.
