The summer of 2012 was the 3rd hottest summer in U.S. history, said NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in today's State of the Climate report. June 2012 ranked as the 14th warmest June on record, August was the 16th warmest August on record, and July was the warmest month of any month in U.S. history, bringing the average summer temperature of the contiguous U.S. just 0.2°F shy of the hottest summer on record--the great Dust Bowl summer of 1936. Second place is held by 2011, which was just 0.1°F cooler than the summer of 1936. So far in 2012, we've had the warmest March on record, 3rd warmest April, 2nd warmest May, and warmest July. These remarkably warm months have helped push temperatures in the contiguous U.S. to the warmest on record for the year-to-date period of January - August. Temperatures this year in the U.S. have been so far above the previous record--a remarkable 1°F for the year-to-date period--that even if the remainder of 2012 ranks historically in the coldest one-third of September - Decembers on record, 2012 will beat out 1998 for the warmest year in history. Reliable weather records for the U.S. go back to 1895. The most recent 12-month period of September 2011 - August 2012 was the 4th warmest 12-month period in U.S. history, exceeded only by the 12-month periods ending in July, June, and May of this year.


Figure 1. The summer of 2012 was the warmest on record for Wyoming and Colorado, and ranked in the top-ten warmest on record for 22 other states. For the Contiguous U.S., it was the 3rd warmest summer since record keeping began in 1895. Image credit: NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC).


Figure 2. Year-to-date temperatures for the contiguous U.S. through August, compared to the previous record warmest years in U.S. history. Outcome scenarios based on persistence of temperature from September through December, the remaining five months of 2012, are shown. Even if the remainder of 2012 ranks historically in the coldest one-third of September - Decembers on record, 2012 will beat out 1998 for the warmest year in history. The January-August 2012 contiguous U.S. average temperature was 58.7°F, 4.0°F above average. The data for 2012 are preliminary. Image credit: NOAA/NCDC.

Most extreme January - August period on record
The year-to-date period was the most extreme in U.S. history, according to NOAA's U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI), which tracks the percentage area of the contiguous U.S. experiencing top-10% and bottom-10% extremes in temperature, precipitation, and drought. The CEI was 47% during the year-to-date January - August period. This is the highest value since CEI record-keeping began in 1910, and more than double the average value of 20%. Remarkably, 85% of the contiguous U.S. had maximum temperatures that were in the warmest 10% historically during the first eight months of 2012, and 75% of the U.S. of the U.S. had warm minimum temperatures in the top 10%. The percentage area of the U.S. experiencing top-10% drought conditions was 22%, which was the 11th greatest since 1910.


Figure 3. NOAA's U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI) for January - August shows that 2012 had the most extreme first eight months of the year on record, with 47% of the contiguous U.S. experiencing top-10% extreme weather.

Quoting RTSplayer:


I think it's called Baroclynic amplification.

When tropical cyclones get far to the north they start to hybridize and mix with fronts and upper level lows, and that can enhance their intensity even as they lose tropical characteristics, and for example, the pressure may drop more, and they "eye" or CoC may get bigger or elongated, etc.


Well, I asked because from adv. 47 the pressure was 988 and now it's 968 mb... a 20 mb drop so fast?

I would say the response was right, but the tactics employed after the conventional aspects of war were incorrect.

Was it right to go to war with Iraq even though technically most of the terrorists were not from Iraq? Yes. Saddam should have been taken out of power a decade earlier anyway.

We should have gone to war with Saudi Arabia, though, and bombed them just as hard as Iraq. Instead, what we did was sort of like arresting or killing the accomplices, while letting the masterminds and source of the problem go free.

Unfortunately, Osama Bin Laden was just one man and one mastermind/charismatic terrorist leader. Sadly, he will be replaced in time by another, and the cycle will start all over again. Until the west grinds radical Islam to non-existence, this problem will continue to resurface.

The difference between them and us is we only do it because we were provoked by many terrorist attacks, not just 9/11, that just put it over the top, and we said "Enough. Time to pay for your crimes." On the other hand, they do this allegedly in the name of their false god, or at least certainly a false interpretation of "God," for no good reason really.

Yes war is justified, and assassinations of all radical muslims, not just Al-Quaeda members, whenever and where ever possible, is more than justified.

They want to use "God" as a standard of judgement, here is the commandment of the allegedly the same "God" they claim to be serving:

"Who ever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed..."

It's one of the oldest commandments in the Bible and Abrahamic faiths.



But anyway, for the urban warfare aspects, we should have kept infantry use to a minimum, and rely on more special forces type stealth kill missions and assassinations for top terror organization members.



Also, I think Gangs and organized "mob" crime in the U.S. should be considered illegal militias or pirates, which the constitution addresses, and they should be prosecuted via war and the laws of war. The only technicality that distinguishes a gang from a pirate is the fact that the traditional definition of piracy requires members of one boat raiding another by violence, or members of a boat raiding land by violence. Gangs often do the exact same thing to one another, or to bystanders on land, just without boats. Some mob violence and other mob activities meets both the definition of illegal militias and the definition of piracy.

People who commit mass shootings or bombings should be prosecuted under the laws of war, not the civilian laws. Terrorism in general including any mass shooting or mass bombing of purely civilian targets, should be considered an act of war, whether or not the perpetrator was a member of any state's military. The perpetrator should be tried as a war criminal under military tribunal.

People who intentionally massacre unarmed civilians deserve no mercy, nor do they deserve the priviledge of plea bargains or other such measures found in a civilian court system.

I know it's off topic, so if the admins want to delete this, fine, I'll put it in my blog instead.


But it IS 9/11 rememberance day after all.

Quoting to preserve it...nicely put!

Headline: "Summer 2012: 3rd hottest in U.S. history"...

Yet from the body text: "Reliable weather records for the U.S. go back to 1895."

Does not parse.

Nearly as much time has elapsed from 1895 'til current date, as had before 1895 to the real actual beginning of "U.S. history". These are historically insignificant numbers of years, when looking at the climatological record.

This is a Propaganda piece. No thanks.
Oh, this "argument" again? Most reasonable people are aware that when someone refers to a historical record in any area--weather, sports, hot dog eating--they're talking about something that happened while accurate records were being maintained. When Guinness states that this or that athlete ran the fastest mile ever, they're not discounting the possibility that some long-legged proto-human being chased by a hungry saber-toothed tiger 100,000 years ago may very well have actually run a faster mile. Yet that possibility wouldn't allow one to credibly make the claim that the Guinness record was therefore invalid, would it?

(I realize there are those who claim that, given the age of the earth, no record is of significance. 1,000 years--or 10,000, or a million, or a hundred million--isn't a lengthy enough period of record for to be meaningful for such people, especially when they are in disagreement with what that record shows. If some choose to deny reality in that manner, that's their prerogative, and who am I to try to convince them otherwise?)

At any rate, 118 years may seem "historically insignificant" to some, but given that the past two summers have been among the three hottest ever recorded in this country, that's pretty significant, indeed.
Quoting weather98:
It should say

"third warmest summer in reliable and recorded weather history." (1895).
Such qualifiers would really only serve to unnecessarily clutter the truth. Is "Joe Quarterback threw the longest forward pass in reliable and recorded football history last night" really any clearer than "Joe Quarterback threw the longest forward pass ever last night"? Is "Hurricane Monster's 280 mph sustained winds were the highest ever measured in reliable and recorded meteorological history" a clear and clarifying improvement over "Hurricane Monster's 280 mph sustained winds were the highest ever measured"?

In both cases, no.

Many who don't want to recognize or accept reality often insist on multiple qualifiers to help insulate themselves from the truth. That we do so is an indication that such behavior probably served some forgotten evolutionary purpose at some point along our path to becoming what we are. But nowadays it only holds us back from doing what needs to be done. And that is a tragedy...

Hurricane forecasting is science and anywhere they think they can get good info. is where they want to be. Yes it is a dying storm but still has winds and tide surge associated with it. I don't see a problem with the NHC or NOAA acquiring as much info as they want.

Actually, no it doesn't. Weather doesn't happen without an atmosphere and it took quite a while for one to form.

His point is demonstrating that he has a lack of reading comprehension. Reliable US temperature records go back to 1895. Yes US history goes back to 1776, but before 1895 temperature records were not as reliable, or available in all areas for that matter.

Being willfully ignorant is fine. But people shouldn't post such nonsense on a science based blog and expect to not get called out it.

Intermediate tropical cyclone information statement issued by the
Canadian Hurricane Centre of Environment Canada at 5:55 AM ADT
Tuesday 11 September 2012.
------------------------------------------------- --------------------
Intermediate tropical cyclone information statement for:
=new= Labrador
=new= Newfoundland
=new= Nova Scotia
=new= Prince Edward Island.

For tropical storm Leslie.

The next statement will be issued by 9:00 AM ADT.

Leslie currently giving tropical storm conditions to southern
Newfoundland - will make landfall in the vicinity of the Burin
Peninsula over the next 1 to 3 hours.

------------------------------------------------- --------------------
==discussion==
As of 6.00 AM ADT, tropical storm Leslie was located near 45.7
North 56.4 west, or about 250 kilometres southwest of Argentia, nl.
Maximum sustained winds are near 110 km/h with higher gusts, and the
storm is moving toward the north-northeast at near 65 km/h.
The minimum central pressure is 968 MB.

The centre of Leslie is expected to make landfall in the vicinity of
the Burin Peninsula or Placentia Bay over the next 1 to 3 hours.
Rain bands extend out ahead of Leslie and are currently giving very
heavy rainfall rates on the order of 25 millimetres per hour to parts
of the Burin and Avalon peninsulas. Southeast winds are
strengthening rapidly over these regions as well; Cape Race recently
reported a wind gust to 85 km/h; Winterland and St. Lawrence on the
Burin Peninsula recently reported a wind gust to 83 and 95 km/h
respectively. A private weather station at cape pine on the Southern
Avalon recently reported a hurricane force wind gust to 122 km/h.

Tropical storm Leslie is merging with a pre-existing frontal trough
over Newfoundland and the combined system will sweep across the
province today giving additional heavy rainfall to some of the areas
already drenched by this system on Monday.

Dangerous tropical storm or near-hurricane like conditions can be
expected over Southeastern Newfoundland this morning as Leslie pushes
onshore.

Tropical storm warnings and hurricane watches as well as wind.
Warnings remain in effect for parts of southern and Eastern
Newfoundland expected to be directly affected by tropical storm
Leslie this morning. Rainfall warnings are in effect for eastern
mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, and most of Newfoundland.

TROPICAL CYCLONE TECHNICAL INFORMATION STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE
CANADIAN HURRICANE CENTRE OF ENVIRONMENT CANADA AT 9.35 AM NDT
TUESDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2012.

THE NEXT STATEMENT WILL BE ISSUED BY 3.30 PM NDT

1. CURRENT POSITION, STRENGTH, CENTRAL PRESSURE AND MOTION

AT 9.30 AM NDT, POST-TROPICAL STORM LESLIE WAS LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE
47.6 N AND LONGITUDE 54.8 W, ABOUT 37 NAUTICAL MILES OR 69 KM
NORTHWEST OF ARGENTIA. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 65
KNOTS (120 KM/H) AND CENTRAL PRESSURE AT 969 MB. LESLIE IS MOVING
NORTHEAST AT 35 KNOTS (65 KM/H).

3. TECHNICAL DISCUSSION

A. ANALYSIS

AT 11Z POST-TROPICAL STORM LESLIE MADE LANDFALL NEAR FORTUNE ON THE
SOUTHERN TIP OF THE BURIN PENINSULA WITH HURRICANE STRENGTH WIND
GUSTS. THE CENTRAL PRESSURE HAS BEEN LOWERED TO 969MB AND WIND GUSTS
OF 67KT WERE REPORTED EAST OF THE STORM AT CYYT AND CWWU. THE
STRONGEST WINDS ARE CLEARLY DISPLACED TO THE EAST AT THIS TIME WHICH
CONFIRMS THAT LESLIE HAS COMPLETED THE TRANSITION INTO A POST-TROPICAL
STORM. INTENSITY IS MAINTAINED AS A 65KT TROPICAL STORM FOR NOW. WATER
VAPER SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS DRY AIR QUICKLY ADVANCING ON THE
SOUTHERN FLANK OF THE STORM. SATELLITE IMAGERY ALSO SHOWS COLDER CLOUD
TOPS WELL TO THE NORTH OF THE CENTER INDICATING THAT LESLIE HAS
CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE AND IS NOW MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHEAST
AT NEARLY 35 KNOTS.


B. PROGNOSTIC

VERY LITTLE CHANGE TO PREVIOUS TRACK PHILOSPHY. LESLIE IS INTERACTING
WITH THE FRONTAL TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN MARITIMES MOVING JUST
SLIGHTLY FASTER NOW WHICH SHOULD BRING IT OFF THE NORTHEAST COAST
AROUND 18Z. IT WILL REMAIN A LARGE AND POWERFUL POST TROPICAL CYCLONE
AS IT MOVES OFFSHORE BEFORE BEING ABSORBED BY ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM OVER THE NORTHEAST ATLANTIC IN A FEW DAYS. WE ARE MAINTAINING
THE INTENSITY AT 65 KNOT POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE WITH HIGHER WIND GUSTS
ESPECIALLY ALONG EASTERN COASTAL AREAS.

On 9/11/01 I was 4 years old. playing the piano preparing to go to piano class.
I remember some sort of uninterrupted breaking news coverage on the TV and my mom said "oh my goodness".
I don't remember hearing about it in the days following 9/11.

Thats all i remember.
I learned about what happened in later years
It was a terrible day that we will never forget.

Many of us remembering where we were glued to the TV's this morning on 9/11.....I was at work watching the tragedy unfold with a co-worker wondering if it was an accident until the second plane hit on live TV. Remember all the lives lost on 9/11 and the American soldiers and CIA folks who their gave their lives the past 11 years.

On the weather front, very dry out in the Atlantic. Gonna give the system out there a tough time spinning up in the short-term.

Today is a calm cool day over the eastern 1/2 of the country today. Very similar to 11 years ago. I was only in preschool when it happened but I still remember 1 thing. That there were no planes flying in the sky so my mother told me the air traffic control system was broken. Of course I believed that and didn't know what really happened until later. Never forget the tragedy of 9/11.
