A 9.25F Drop in Two Years – Max Temperature.
Top 21 States in terms of negative anomaly.
The average temperature had a 7.89F drop in two years.
It was the 27th coldest November in terms of Average Temperature in the USA. (1 would be coldest)
-1.61F below the mean.
It was the 21st coldest October in terms of Maximum Temperature in the USA. (1 would be coldest)

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 …
February 2017 was 2nd warmest Tmax. 1954 is still the record holder.
2017 Map of Tmax anomalies
1954 Map of Tmax anomalies
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.
