Frequency of 90-degree days has plummeted


Steven Goddard’s ever-informative “Real Science” Blog has recently tracked a startling phenomenon: the sharp reduction in frequency of 90-degree summer days across the U.S. See here.

In the mountainous counties of Montana, for example, we have had two consecutive summers in which temps did not approach 100 degrees even once.

There were only a handful of 90-degree days this summer in Park and Gallatin Counties, and I recall only one or two 90-degree days during the summer of 2014.
