Posted on 05/02/2013 4:49:17 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach
At the two-thirds mark for meteorological spring, 2013 was the second coldest spring on record slightly warmer than 1975.
Data is from here : Index of /pub/data/ghcn/daily/hcn/
But 1975 had an unusually warm May at 17C. The two warmest months of May were in 1934 and 1896.
Both graphs above show the average of all daily temperatures at all US HCN stations, calculated per year.
The forecast for the first two weeks of May is well below normal, so odds are that the spring of 2013 will be the coldest on record in the US. This is what Fort Collins looked like at 7pm today (May 1.)
Crack government scientists with supercomputers, predicted in January that this spring was going to be super hot!
We have had AC on for two days. In Michigan. 81 degrees here today.
Cold Spring? That means Al Gore must be on a global warming tour.
Those scatter charts are like a Rorschach test.
I’m loving it. I slept with the winders open last night.
Snowstorm in northern Idaho yesterday. 65 Fahrenheit today. Weird.
We had a pretty good blizzard here last night.
We will have frost tonight in Tulsa ok. Record low. Clearly a result of man made global warming. What else could it be?
I love it. Back in the 70’s snow was very common week to week in the SE. The liberals will never admit their entire ideology is based on a bunch of whackos and we really are not in charge.
Grand Design by a Creator is completely against their fold.
Let them wallow in misery, the fed will ensure to keep them there.
Algore please pick up the courtesy phone...
California Spring Fire: Unusually Strong Santa Anas, Dryness
May 02, 2013; 4:40 PM
A quickly spreading wildfire, called the Spring Fire, is burning in Ventura County, Calif. According to the Ventura County Fire Department, it has forced hundreds of evacuations on Thursday. As of 12:00 PDT Thursday, the fire was estimated at 2,000 acres, and it was still spreading. At least 600 firefighters are on the scene.
Along with heat, there are gusty winds and very dry conditions in place.
Winds of 30-40 mph are not helping matters. This magnitude of wind can quickly fan the flames of fires.
Relative humidity dropped as low as 2-3 percent on Thursday. Vegetation is so dry it is more like it would be in the middle of the summer...
The Los Angeles area is forecast to experience 90-degree temperatures for the first time this season before the week ends.
Temperatures are projected to reach record highs for the date Thursday in San Francisco and could challenge the record in San Diego Friday.
Yeah, great sleeping weather. A friend lives in Houghton, 2 hours ago she posted on Facebook that it’s snowing and sticking.
Last month was the coldest March on record for us (Virginia). Our average temperature for April is in the 70s, but we’ve been consistently 10-15 degrees below normal. It almost got chilly with the windows open today.
I dislike the heat, so I’m loving it.
We had 7 inches in March and then another 6 Six just a few days later.
And now, even as I type this Kansas City is a Snow Deluge!!!
Its gonna kill my garden and freeze my Fully Bloomed Lilac's.
Thanks for that Al Gore. You Suck!
That makes sense. Global warming can lead to increased snows, cooler summers, and record cold springs. Al Gore would explain it, but we’re not Nobel Prize winners, so we wouldn’t understand.
Sorry to hear that. I'm enjoying 73f days and 55f nights. I don't know how long it will last. Our seasonal high at this time of year is 60f.
Northeast Arkansas has a forecast for snow in the next few days. I’m in the far southeast corner and I’m loving the cooler weather for now.
Much of Texas will have a killing freeze tonight, doing damage to trees that have leafed out and those that have fruit on them. When pecan trees are fooled, it’s a sign of the last times.
Here in CA, we’ve had an unbelievable heat wave this week. 20+ degrees above normal. Records being broken all over the place. It’s miserable.

Up here in the UP of Michigan Sun - Tues in the 70s, Wed 40s and Thurs Rain, Freezing Rain and Snow. In Wakefield, MI US 2 is shut down due to flooding. City of Ironwood, Iron County MI, and Marquette County all have flooding too. I have to travel to Marquette - Michigame River is supposedly flooded around Republic and South republic (just north of me), will find out on Friday
I live in the Utica-Rome NY area...foothills of the Adirondacks. We always have weird weather this time of year. One day it can be in the 60's; the next day in the high 20's with snow. Back in 2000, we had a heavy snowstorm on Mother's Day. We usually go from winter weather, right into summer without having any kind of spring.
Me from a heart attack cleaning up the ice storm debris that still exists around the yard despite weeks of work.
I’m under the X in Texas and it is 47 degrees. Supposed to be in the 30’s tonight. May 2nd? Brrrrrrrr
57 and gray and drizzling in Charlotte today. It feels like March 2 out there, not May 2. Though before this gray patch, the weather last week was awesome...65-70 during the day and sunny, absolutely perfect. I’m just waiting for it to snap from 60s to 90+ with no break in between, like it often does here in the South.
Went to my daughter’s regional track meet today near Fort Worth. 42 degrees, windy, raining, sleeting all day. I’m still trying to warm up. Who’da thought this part of Texas would be this cold in May?
Las Vegas was only 98 a couple of days ago,...not sure what it is today.
It was 98 at my house today, but you won’t see it in the news, it is a small micro-climate in East San Diego.
I would bet money that it will reach 100 tomorrow.
Oh,.. the Santa Ana winds....that explains it.
I call BS! 80 in the shade here in the SF Bay Area.
Which part of Canada would you reside in...?
Coldest on record?
Look at NE Oklahoma and NW Arkansas.
I remember back in 1972 when Tulsa, OK was 105 degrees on May 5!
Then in 1978 it was 42 degrees on May 1!
Then in the early 1980s we had FROST on May 19!
Then in the early 1990s we had a drought clear through May!
We had snow in the middle of April around 2005!
And who can forget the terrible March 14 snow storm of 1968!
Pecan trees,...that is horrible,...I love pecan pie.
I just drove through snow all the way from KC to Ok.
Just came in from shoveling global warming. Planting delayed by "cool, wet weather"--
--after the "end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it drought"--
Darn weather--just when you're doomed by heat, it snows.
Ahhhhh. This is EXACTLY what the climate models have predicted.
Media vermin will never endorse that Al Goron was/is wrong because to do so would be to admit that they, the enemy within—the media—have been wrong all along also. So we continue to have fools and jackels worhsipped by the democrips, because to stop worshipping their false idols is to admit they are wrong ... and with their defense of the serial murderer Gosnell, dead wrong.
I thought it was snowing in Minnesota. How do you get 81 in Michigan at the same time?
Here’s what enviro lefties never seem to understand...
The earth is 2/3 water, much of that deep water oceans. The sun is a million times the volume of the earth. The sun is an ongoing nuclear reaction with all manner of storms and fluctuations.
These two are the primary drivers of almost all weather and temperature changes, both short and long term.
Yet the lefties claim that Suzy Smith’s 4Runner is causing all the oddball weather. Nonsensical at best, mendacious at least.
Ya gotta love the models. No matter what happens it is EXACTLY what the models predicted.
I had a friend BLAME the cold on global warming. Of course he had no facts to back anything up with but just stated that was the cause. Idiot.
Wait until tomorrow.
Tuesday here in Wisconsin it was 87 degrees, today it got up to 42 with snow.
Here, north of San Antonio last month it hit 94 and broke a 119 year old record. Low tonight forecast at 41.
