We have been getting high heat advisories from the NWS every day for weeks. I recently saw a blogger (I’m sorry I can’t remember who) that was observing that these advisories seem to be trying to scare everyone into a climate hysteria, even though it’s this hot every year.
I have records. Let’s take a look. I have a personal weather station on the top of my house. The same exact station has been up there since July 31, 2019 when the previous station was taken out by lightning. Let’s take a look at the last four years to see what the weather has been like:
July 24, 2023
|Temperature||88.7 °F||75.2 °F||78.4 °F|
July 24, 2022
|Temperature||96.6 °F||73.9 °F||81.9 °F|
July 24, 2021
|Temperature||92.1 °F||72.9 °F||81.2 °F|
July 24, 2020
|Temperature||103.3 °F||71.2 °F||83.6 °F|
So it’s actually a bit cooler today than it has been in years past.
