The ground hog did not see his shadow. The National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration said the global temperature was warming and it has been going on for 137 years. We had to come out of the Ice Age didn’t we? They allegedly claim they have been keeping track of the temperatures and March 2016 “was the highest month of March dating back to 1880.”
Meteorologists did not used to exist in the news. The temperature would be said and what the weather looked like as far as if snow or rain was in the forecast. Now we have a full blown weather man and he has some schooling under his belt. He has to make his money somehow and he can’t just stand on television or on the radio and say a number for the temperature and that’s the end of that. They need drama and they need to pay for the educated man they hired. Now we have weather reports that go on for hours depending on the weather. Weather has become a big business and it is no more reliable or accurate than the groundhog who lives in a zoo in a non-natural environment.

The Modern Trend. March came in like a lion. You may just have a record but that is all you have and that kind of temperature is not uncommon. According to the NOAA the average temperature for the month of March planet-wide was 2.20 degrees Fahrenheit above the twentieth century average of 54.9. Anthony Watts a seasoned meteorologist released a statement in December 2015 showing 30 year trends of temperature to be lower. The quality of NOAA’s temperature sightings had a lot to do with the quality of temperatures they are finding. Poor sited stations, poor quality stations and changes in time of observation are linked to their “warming trends.” Artificial surfaces like concrete, asphalt, air conditioner exhausts were clearly compromising temperature research findings.
The NOAA temperatures could not be counted on to give quality trends. The overall trend according to NOAA last year cannot be considered a trend we broke this year and one that was broken this year. Areas around the globe reported having more rain and cooler temperatures and snow. Spring weather wasn’t predicted to become widespread until April.
Looking at the NOAA site March 2016 was the warmest since March 2012and the record warmest March temperature was back in 1910. Reporting can vary from site-to-site and their wording of the weather can throw a scare into the local grandma and high school vegetarian. NOAA is not correcting the problem and temperature trends need to be looked at in a clear reported manner. In the same way that scientists asked that reporting on shark findings be clear, updated, concise, and not for shock value (would help the lives of sharks in the ocean), the same treatment scientific approach needs to govern the way reporting the weather is handled and the terminology used.
Death Valley, California was officially 134 degrees in 1910, the most extreme high temperature by the World Meteorological Organization. In 1922 El Azizia, Libya rated in as the hottest at 136 degrees making it the hottest spot for a day time temperature but it was discovered it was the result in calculation errors. Death Valley still rates as the highest day time temperature on the globe at 128, 129 degrees for their day time temperatures.
