Start of 2012, March shatter US heat records
Yahoo ^ | 4.10.2012 | SETH BORENSTEIN

It has been so warm in the United States this year, especially in March, that national records were not just broken, they were deep-fried.

Temperatures in the lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees (4.8 degrees Celsius) above normal for March and 6 degrees (3.3 degrees Celsius) higher than average for the first three months of the year, according to calculations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That far exceeds the old records.

Our local meteorologists [in south central Texas] are not screaming climate change rather we just had a mild winter.

I’m not shoveling the six feet of snow we had this time last year. How that is bad news escapes me.

Today is the hottest Tuesday I can remember in years. Except for when the Sun goes behind the clouds. That wind makes it a little chilly. All weather is local.

There has been no global warming for 15 years, but you wouldn’t know it if you only follow the MSM.

“Weather is not climate!”

Colder than normal - not news.
Warmer than normal - headlines.

Remember the motto of liberals: “We don’t know science, we don’t know economics, we don’t know philosophy, and we don’t know people...but we know better than you.”

We had a mild winter, but Alaska, Europe, Russia, and to a certain extent, China, had a horrible winter. Why don't we hear about that?

SE Texas is like a couple of years ago. Not too hot and not too cold. Unlike last year when it started out horribly dry and hot and just got worse all the way until about November.

The Grand Junction station I listen to keeps going on about snow pack missing and hot.

Maybe our heat of last summer is just moving west? That is consistent with my theory that seasonal weather patterns migrate from east to west.

North America has an unusually warm spring, how does this compare with, say, central and northern Europe, or central Asia? And what does this portend for the approaching winter in the SOUTHERN half of the planet?

Just because a firecracker has gone off under your own @$$ does not mean the whole world is blowing up.

What we have is a unusual shift in the weather patterns which circulate around the WHOLE world, not just in Denver, Colorado. Total overall warming and/or cooling over the entire earth’s surface will be little affected, and tends to be self-regulating over the course of the year, and the cycles of many years taken together.

Trees, grass and buildings will not spontaneously burst into flame. There will be an outbreak of mass hysteria in certain parts of “blue America”, however.

Right now here in sw Ohio the temp is about 50 with a rather stiff breeze. Jacket weather in mid April.
One thing I’ve learned in watching the weather for 60+ years: two weeks, or even a month, of above “average” temps will always, always be followed by two weeks of below average temps. It never fails. If we have April weather in March, we will have March’s weather in April. It’s how we get’averages’ in the first place.

We had a record (and drought) Summer last year.

I work outside so I’m wondering what the highs will be this Summer.

In the article:

“It is important to note that this unusual winter heat is mostly a North America phenomenon. Much of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere has been cold, said NOAA meteorologist Martin Hoerling”

Our mildd winter in most of North America has nothing to due with any kind of climate change whatsoever. This warmth has been the result of the fact that the Jet Stream never dipped south through the central and eastern US, like it usually does. The Artic and Atlantic Oscillations kept the Jet Stream far North over North America and above the Jet Stream in NA it was frigid...Alaska had a bitter winter, evn by their standards. The Jet Stream did dip south...over the Atlantic, and gave Europe and North Africa one of their coldest winters ever. They even had 6” of snow in the Tunisian Sahara.

While Europe had an unusually severe winter, they have also had a sudden spring warming which they say has threatened a lot of flooding. One explanation I read said that less Arctic ice was affecting wind patterns in a way the caused the severe Eurasian winter.

Fact: More snow is likely to fall at 20 to 30 degrees f, than at 0 to 15 degrees, so don’t judge temperature by the snowfall.

Fact in the late 1950’s in Iowa I experienced a winter with a week of nightime temperatures from 25 to 27 degrees f below zero with daytime temperature no higher than 21 below. I also experienced a week in summer of 105 to 107 degrees with no night time temperature below 93 degrees (no AC either). I wonder what the recent records are in Iowa?

Fact: After 50 years living near Washington DC, this year the cherry blossoms bloomed about 10 days earlier than average. They have been somewhat early for the past 10 years, but never this much. I just hope this heat doesn’t carry over into the summer wherever we are living.

That could be very true. I saw a 15 day forecast that had a lot of 70s for highs. (we average around 76 for a daily high this time of year) Truthfully, after the Summer we had last year, I'm not quite ready for the 100s yet.

If we could only find a way to turn off the Sun then the whole problem with climate disruption would completely disappear!

This just in.....territory west of the Mississippi River and north of Oklahoma are actually part of the United States, and at least here in the Pacific NW we have record snow packs in the Cascade Mountains. Our temperatures were, if anything lower than normal. Because the main stream media mostly ignores “flyover” country, doesn’t make what happens where they live any more significant.

Agreed. We've had an abnormally chilly winter and spring here in So. Calif. too.

We should all bear in mind the fact that Seth Borenstein is an AGW shill, totally lacking in scientific credibility. So is the Associated Press, his employer, which has been fully in the Far Left camp since at least the 1970s.

The article starts out ok, talking about the impact of LaNina and the rest of the northern hemisphere not being impacted, then takes a left turn into the gutter blaming fossil fuels, and winds up in the sewer with Hanson spewing more of his drivel about globull warming.

Here, it was in the 80s less than two weeks ago, and it snowed today. No accumulation, but still amusing.
