According to the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), much of the United States is experiencing below normal temperatures thus far in 2008. In all, through the end of October, over 80% of the continental United States is experiencing normal or below normal temperatures.
This news comes on the heels of some other interesting “cool weather” recently. The Swiss lowlands received the most snow for October since 1931 and areas of Florida broke 150 year record temperature lows. Perhaps in a somewhat ironic event, London experienced its first October snow since 1922 on the same day the House of Commons was debating Global Warming. 🙂
Certainly we cannot draw any real conclusions about manmade climate change or global warming from these isolated incidents but they do have to make you wonder.
