Accuweather changes tune
A couple of days later a reader emailed me saying that my source disagreed with me.
I then went to Accuweather, and the first words to greet me were "This blog entry has been superceded by a newer one which has updated stats."
So, let me bring you up to date.
Even though Accuweather still agrees that we broke 3,000 low temperature records in July, they also say that temperatures are “still biased to record-breaking highs.”
“When you compare the number of Record Lows to Record Highs for 2009 so far on a monthly basis," says Accuweather, "you come up with more lows than highs since May, but more highs than lows before that…year-to-date there have been 1,820 more highs than lows broken."
"The overall trend is UP," says
Are they simply being politically
correct? I'm inclined to believe Accuweather (as opposed to The Weather
Channel), but I wonder where those
higher temperatures occurred.
Were the record high temperatures similarly spread over such a wide area, or were they in a concentrated area? I don't know.
What I do know, is that
this coming February, if I were living in an area that should receive 30
feet of snow in one week, I
wouldn't much care if some other place - say, in southern Arizona - were reporting
record high temperatures for the same week.
