El Paso, TX on Feb 2, 2011

Average High Temp: 60F (15C)
Actual High temp: 15F (-10C)

Average Low Temp: 34F (1C)
Actual Low Temp: 1F (-17C)

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
One example of El Paso's varying climate at its most extreme was the damaging winter storm of early February 2011, which caused closures of schools, businesses, and City Hall. The snow, which was light, stopped after about a day, but during the ensuing cold episode, municipal utilities went into a crisis. The high temperature on February 2, 2011 was 15 °F (−9 °C), the lowest daily maximum on record. In addition, the low temperature on February 3 was 1 °F (−17 °C), besting the 5 °F (−15 °C) monthly record low set during the cold wave of 1899.[44] Loss of desert vegetation, such as Mexican/California palm trees, oleanders, and iceplants to the cold weather was one of the results. Electric wires were broken, causing area blackouts. Many water utility pipes froze, causing areas of the city to be without water for several days. When the pipes thawed, water was unsafe to drink due to filtration systems not working, forcing schools to close again.

Got it!

Asking what happened to Spring? We're right...

It's one of the least number of times we had Spring max temps from March 1 to May 6th. We went from Winter to Summer this year.

Bridgeport this year had 35 days where the max temps were between 45-65 degrees F. Only 2 other years had less for the time period.

Hartford only 29 times.. That's 3rd least since 1949.

I knew we didn't get much of Spring time temps around here. Only 35 of 67 days did around here



Normal Max for Hartford is low 40s starting March and mid 60s ending April. What the heck happened to those temps? Maybe for summer? LOL

Alert, Nunavut (at 82.5 degrees North) had 0.3 mm of RAIN on January 23, 1958. High was 32.0 F / 0.0 C that day so rain is plausible.

Canadian Climate Normals 1971-2000 Station Data

They have never had another rain between October and April. In fact, even July has mostly snow there.

More Alert rain climatology to come, including exact dates the first ever spring and last ever recorded fall rain were. It's sometime in May and September, respectively.

I've finished crunching the numbers. The data I have is from 1951-2007, I couldn't find post-2007 data for some reason

Besides the freak January 23, 1958 rain, the earliest rain on record is May 29 and the latest is September 19. The dates are May 29, 2005 and September 19, 1985.

The 2005 rain was the only rain in May in the 57 year period. 7 years - 1953, 1966, 1973, 1985, 1989, 2001, and 2007 - saw September rains.

The average first rain was June 22. The range was from May 29 (2005) to July 26 (1963). That's right, some years didn't see their first liquid precipitation until July.

The average last rain was August 20. The range was July 26 (1996) to September 19 (1985).

The average rain window was 59 days (June 22 - August 20). The shortest was 17 days (July 26 - August 12, 1963) and the longest was 100 days (June 11 - September 19, 1985).

March 1907 (the warmest March on record here) had 11 straight days with temps over 90F!

The average temp that month was 71.2F, nearly the same as May that same year which was 71.6F (the 10th coolest on record).

Boston's annual snowfall is on the left and Raleigh's annual snowfall is on the right.

The black rectangles show years where Raleigh got more snow than Boston.

Inuvik, the northernmost place you can drive to in Canada, was 28C yesterday. Tuktoyaktuk, located 100km away right on the Arctic Ocean was 22.3C yesterday. Both of these places shattered the old record for this date by 10C/18F. As a matter of fact, the record for all of May for these two places was beaten by 3 degrees C in Inuvik.

If someone is interested I have found some old climate normals for eastern side of south-east Estonia- 1866-1925 daily mean temperatures on precipitation of Räpina. That is interesting because right now weather service measures only some hydrological data at Räpina and not anything meteorological.

Unfortunately, as I told right now there is now a full scale EMHI weatherstation in Räpina which seems to be a little bit more continental than Võru. Right now there are a few non-full scale weather stations in that area and they record hour by hour temperatures there (at Korela eg) but unforunately do not calculate any averages.






Right now the cold months are milder, as well Marches are warmer. Novembers are now months with above zero temperatures and thus winters are not any more that long right now as they were back then. It is visible that the temperature has been increased mostly under the expense of winter, early spring and late autumn months. I have also a reason to believe that 1960-90 period was overall more "oceanic"/filthy than weather in 150 years back. Right now, post 2000 seems to be an climatological optimum
