This week I’m looking at some more errors or omissions concerning the NCDC list of all-time state record temperatures. This time the cases of Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, South Carolina, Wyoming, and Oregon.

Last year the National Climate Data Center (NCDC) created a new web site that neatly summarizes various state weather records: specifically what the extreme values for hottest and coldest temperatures, maximum 24-hour precipitation and 24-hour snowfall, and maximum recorded snow depth for each individual state are. Over the next few weeks I will post a series of blogs concerning mistakes, some obvious and others more subjective, that I and others have discovered in the course of fact-checking these records.

Extreme weather highlights for this past February include more extraordinary snowfalls in the U.S.A. (along with some record low temperatures) and more torrential rains and floods in Australia and South America.
