July is coming to a close so I checked the high temperatures nationwide and compared them to July of last summer. First, the last 7 days (July 21 thru 27th)
|POLAR OPPOSITES FOR SURE!|
Now the last 30 days (June 28th thru July 27th). This takes into account the week of 90s in mid July for Ohio.
|2012 WAS STILL A BLAST FURNACE COMPARED TO 2013|
How does this summer stack up compared to the most recent summers? Here are the temperatures plotted over the last 30 years for Cleveland. I circled the years that parallel this summer. The most recent summer was not 2009 (as I initially thought) but 2008.
This summer compared to ALL SUMMERS since 1871? This summer circled in red on the right side.
It seems as if we've had "cooler" and "warmer" periods since the 1870s. This summer fits nicely inside our "warmer" trend since the late 1980s.
WILL WE SEE ANOTHER 90 THIS SUMMER? The pattern over the next two weeks will give us insight into the answer of that question.
