I guess you just had to go back to 2007 to find a warmer December, 2009 was very similar to this year .
I am surprised you did not come back sooner to let everyone know since you should not have had to go back too far.
I wonder who needs their head checked?

Let me pull out my records for 2007. You just keep picking away like a little bug. As for Dec 2007 you are wrong like always, it was cooler than this month on avg so far to date, still have a few days to go to make you look even more wrong. As for Dec 2009 it also was cooler that this Dec.

Happy to post up pics of my records if need be. Do your homework before banging on the keys.

The precipitation has been a little below normal but December and November are generally not a rainy months.

This is exactly what one would call a normal winter for the area.
Maybe in your book. Keep dreaming. Not normal at all.

Keep your records, I will take the NWS and NOAA records and they match exactly what I said.

I couldn't care less about your little book of hand written records because they mean nothing.

This is a normal winter no matter what your scribblings say.

You just like to take jabs at me. You will never touch me when it comes to the weather.

Hey, no problem. We can set the records straight.

Here is the latest data analysis at a county level so we all don't split further hair . These are departures from normals for the last 30 days. So, you can see the change for yourself.

Note that the official definition of "normal" that NOAA and others use is based on average values from 1980 to 2010 (always 30 year moving window, came to effect just this year. There are those still use the 1970 to 2000 year but that should change soon).

Please just post links to the records you speak of.

I was not the one saying that someone needs their head checked so don't take it personal even though I should since I know your response was directed at me.

I can very easily "touch you", as it would be, if you want to make it personal, because I deal in facts, not some scribbled notebook records you claim to have.
