Default McAllen, TX - true tropical winter - 77 average high, 65 average mean - hottest in U.S.?

someone else did a thread about SPI, so I did a little poking around the records to see if I could beat it.

Key west's average high was only 74 (same as South Padre Island) but its mean was higher because it has higher overnight lows owing to its humidty, so its mean was 69. There wasn't a day in McAllen that failed to reach the 60s, and it never dropped below mid 40s.

still, was this the hottest spot for winter in the continental U.S.?

Umm... Who cares? Seriously, you need to stop starting these stupid threads that somehow try to make Texas look better. I think Texas is a great state, but when you post something as trivial as McAllen is three degrees warmer than Key West in the winter, you've taken it too far.

No it wasn't. Los Angeles was like 85 degrees 2-3 weeks ago.
