Just another example of another warmest year on record for the planet as a whole. I intended "unexpectedly warm for Oklahoma in February" as deliberate understatement. Perhaps, though, it's been more common than I realized for Oklahoma temperatures to reach the high 90s in February. --Bob

Isn't the first year for temperature and the second for precipitation? There were consecutive days of 93° 103 years ago.

This table is: Day, avg low, avg high, record low(year), record high(year), average precip, average snow.

OK, then you only need to go back 21 years for 93°.

Esto, I think his point is that they were having 93 degree days in Oklahoma a hundred years ago, so how is this proof of global warming? Which is a salient point, and why I get as angry with people who say these kinds of things as I do with people who say what about global warming? every time we have a record low. Temperature is not climate, and local is not global.

Agreed. But I'm seeing a lot more record (and near-record) highs than I'm seeing record or near-record lows. And in my experience it takes local experience to really drive the point home for many people. --Bob

Wow, almost 3 months since the last post. No wonder I had trouble finding it.

Anyway, yesterdays Dilbert is applicable.
