22 days in a row with below average temperatures


According to WOOD TV chief Meteorologist Bill Steffen:

Anchorage, Alaska (which had record snowfall and intense cold this past winter) is now heading toward its coldest July ever. The warmest temperature during the first two weeks of July in Anchorage was 62 and it has had 22 days in a row with below average temperatures, along with at least a trace of rain on 13 of the last 14 days.

Juneau, AK has had at least a trace of rain on 19 of the past 20 days and is on track to have nearly double average rainfall in July after having more than double average rainfall in June and nearly double average rainfall in May. Juneau is 3.5 degrees colder than average since May 1 in Juneau. Record daily low temperatures have been set in Alaska.

London, England is also on pace to have double average rainfall for July after getting 243% of average rainfall in June. London has had measurable rain on 12 of the past 13 days and at least a trace of rain on each of the past 17 days.

Paris, France has had measurable rain on 8 of the last 10 days and high temperatures the past 3 days were in the mid 60s, about 10 degrees cooler than average.

    Shall I point out the irony? :)

    I think the last thing the Earth needs is high levels of moisture in the atmosphere at high latitudes. This will invariably result in higher precipitation which will result in snow accumulation.

    There have been numerous weather events where moisture has been carried to high latitudes and this is something to watch rather than some alleged effect from a benign trace gas.

    Looks like other places near England are cold also. I bet if we did research most places are.

    I loved that bit about “climate change will not wait for a bit of frost on the ground” – that about wraps it up!

    It was in the low 70’s today in Anchorage. :-) Perfect time to warm up after all this coverage of being “cold” — I don’t consider high 50’s to be cold by any means.
