Hotter Than “Normal” This Summer?

I was asked why it has been “such a hotter summer than normal for much of the country”. Rather than go into a lot of details I will let the graphics do the talking. These are directly from the CDAS (Climate Data Assimilation System) from NOAA

30-day average temperature anomalies. Blues and greens indicate below normal, and reds and yellow indicate above average. The chart on the bottom corresponds to the colors showing the number of degrees below or above average.


45-day temperature anomalies


60-day temperature anomalies


90 day


120 day


I think some people forget that Summer usually is hot! , That being said a good portion of the US has had below “average” temperatures this Summer.
