The hottest October in the USA was 1963. It was 5F hotter than October 2017.
Why Has CO2 Ignored October?
According to the NOAA, California Precipitation for Apr 2016 to Mar 2017 is the 5th highest.
It must be “Global Warming” …. which causes both rain and no rain …
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)
Despite the El Nino that supposedly made the earth the “warmest ever”, the NOAA Climate At A Glance pages shows no records for February temperature.
Maximum was 6th highest – 3.06F colder than 1954.
Minimum was 7th highest – 1.61F colder than 1998
