Well I guess the #1 spot is in play. Complete disgusts. I don’t want 10 degrees on Christmas at all, but 50-60.. is that to much to ask?

Well, it is meteorology, so it has its ups and downs. Second, it is still early winter, so much is still in play moving on. Third, it did get really cold February 2021. Hang on, it might get interesting in 2022.

Notice 3 of the top 10 have been since 2010. At all 3 stations. Our climate is definitely warming.

I'm now expecting Highs in the mid-80s on Christmas Eve

3 data points means nothing in statistics. This is still weather and not climate.

Warmest December is already shattered in CLL. The coming week is melted frosting on the cake! :lol:

It's climate and weather.

https://www.hereinhouston.org/climate-change

Not an either/or. CO2 and methane are way up...and I measured CO2 directly with a Scholander system back in the 80s. 330 ppm. Try 430 ppm today.

I've been in Texas for 30 years. Hurricanes are stronger. Severe season is earlier in the Spring and more prominent in the Fall. Precipitation and temp extremes more common. I've been measuring precip. temps IMBY for awhile. Texas is a state of extremes...but when biblical becomes the new normal...

Buckle up.

It’s three data points out of others that we see month after month. It’s not just these three data points. It’s yet another example out of a growing mountain of cumulative evidence.

The NOAA climatological normals have increased every time the 20-year updates are calculated and published. That’s climate.

I do happen to know the difference 😉
