July 2012: hottest month in U.S. history

By: Dr. Jeff Masters , 7:16 PM GMT on August 10, 2012

During the 1930s, a series of epic heat waves gripped the U.S., drying up the soil in an unprecedented drought that brought about the great Dust Bowl. The most intense heat hit during July 1936, which set a record for hottest month in U.S. history that stood for 76 years. That iconic record has now fallen, bested by 0.2°F during July 2012, which is now the hottest month in U.S. history, said NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) this week. So far in 2012, we've had the warmest March on record, 3rd warmest April, 2nd warmest May, and warmest July. These remarkably warm months have helped push temperatures in the contiguous U.S. to the warmest on record for the year-to-date period of January - July, and for the 12-month period August 2011 - July 2012. Twenty-four states were record warm for that 12-month period, and an additional twenty states were top-ten warm. The past fourteen months have featured America's 2nd warmest summer (in 2011), 4th warmest winter, and warmest spring. The summer of 2012 is on pace to be a top-five warmest summer on record, and could beat the summer of 1936 as the warmest summer in U.S. history.


Figure 1. When the temperature peaked at an all-time high of 108° in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July 14, 1936, the want-ad staff at the 'St. Paul Daily News' was provided with 400 pounds of ice and two electric fans to cool the air in the press room. Photo from the Minnesota Historical Society.


Figure 2. Year-to-date temperature, by month, for 2012 (red), compared to the other 117 years on record for the contiguous U.S., with the five ultimately warmest years (orange) and five ultimately coolest years (blue) noted. The 2012 data are still preliminary. The year-to-date period of January - July was the warmest on record by a huge margin--1.0°F. Image credit: NOAA/NCDC.


Figure 3. For the fourth consecutive month, a new U.S. record for hottest 12-month period was set in July 2012. Five of the top-ten warmest 12-month periods in the contiguous U.S. since 1895 have occurred since April 2011. Image credit: NOAA/NCDC.

Most extreme January - July period on record
NOAA's U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI), which tracks the percentage area of the contiguous U.S. experiencing top-10% and bottom-10% extremes in temperature, precipitation, and drought, was 46% during the year-to-date January - July period. This is the highest value since CEI record-keeping began in 1910, and more than twice the average value. Remarkably, 83% of the contiguous U.S. had maximum temperatures that were in the warmest 10% historically during the first seven months of 2012, and 74% of the U.S. of the U.S. had warm minimum temperatures in the top 10%. The percentage area of the U.S. experiencing top-10% drought conditions was 20%, which was the 16th greatest since 1910. Extremes in 1-day heavy precipitation events were the 24th greatest in the 103-year record.


Figure 4. NOAA's U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI) for January - July shows that 2012 has had the most extreme first seven months of the year on record, with 46% of the contiguous U.S. experiencing top-10% extreme weather.

Little change to the U.S. drought during the past week
The great U.S. drought of 2012 remained about the same size and intensity over the past week, said NOAA in their weekly U.S. Drought Monitor report issued Thursday, August 9. The area of the contiguous U.S. covered by drought dropped slightly, from 63% to 62%, and the area covered by severe or greater drought stayed constant at 46%. The area of the country in the worst drought categories (extreme to exceptional drought) doubled from 10 percent last month to 22 percent this month. The extreme dryness and excessive heat devastated crops and livestock from the Great Plains to Midwest. During July, the area of the U.S. covered by moderate or greater drought was 57%, ranking as the 5th largest drought in U.S. history:

1) Jul 1934, 80%
2) Dec 1939, 60%
3) Jul 1954, 60%
4) Dec 1956, 58%
5) Jul 2012, 57%



Video 1. This is Not Cool: Peter Sinclair's July 2012 video from the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media couples historical footage with contemporary clips and news segments. In one of the latter, for instance, NBC anchor Brian Williams opens the network’s flagship news program with the words: “It’s now official. We are living in one of the worst droughts of the past 100 years.” NASA scientist James Hansen is featured testifying about risks of “extreme droughts” in the nation’s breadbasket, and I'm featured in a few clips talking about the drought of 2012.

I'll have a new post by noon Saturday.

Wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt has a post looking back at the great Heat Wave of July 1936.

A TRAIN OF THOUGHT IS TO TREAT THE ONSHORE BANDING SIMILAR TO
TROPICAL RAINBANDS COMING ASHORE AHEAD OF A LAND FALLING
HURRICANE. STRONG CYCLONIC FLOW WITHIN THE SYS INTERACTING WITH
FRICTIONAL EFFECTS OF TOPOGRAPHY NETS BRIEF ISOLATED SPIN UPS.


THE ANTICIPATION WITH THE LATEST TORNADO WATCH IS THAT THE E
COASTAL PLAIN WHICH HAS SEEN LITTLE RAIN...BUT REGISTERS TEMPS
INTO THE LOW 80S WITH LOW 70 DWPTS...IS A PRIME ENVIRONMENT OF
INSTABILITY. COUPLED WITH THE LOW-MID LVL STRONG SHEAR ASSOC WITH
ONSHORE SHRTWV DISTURBANCE...AND THERE EXISTS THE POSSIBILITY FOR
BRIEF ISOLATED SPIN-UPS.

THE ACTIVITY SHOULD BE OUT OF THE RGN AROUND 8 PM. FLOODING
THREATS STILL PERSIST AS OUTLINE IN THE 2 PM DISCUSSION BELOW.

If I didn't know that that was a tornadic thunderstorm I would have thought it was like a Marco-sized tropical storm or a reincarnation of Erin..

We have any earthquake experts here on the live earthquake map. They have 4 quakes in the last hour in a Alaska between 5.8-6.3. Are they changing the strength or are they separate quakes.
Not an expert. If you click on "Alaska" link on this page you'll find the Alaska earthquake map from USGS with a list of recent quakes below the map. Lists a 6.2 out in the Aleutians and, at last check, one 3.x aftershock.

...
In addition,
There was no 5.x earthquake in Anchorage yesterday. 4.9 located 80 km SE of Whittier would have been closet to Anchorage and perhaps within the giant Borough (county) of Anchorage but not in or near the City of Anchorage. Probably in Prince William Sound.

Also, Earthquake Park commemorates Good Friday, 1964 when a 9.x quake struck near Seward, AK and caused three blocks residential blocks - where Earthquake Park is now - to slide into Cook Inlet. (No ref used. No linkie needed.)

Maybe best not to believe every little Tweety Tweet and blog comment.

It's a large meso-low that has developed in association with the storm. Probably not even a tornado on the ground right now. Very broad and weak rotation.


Yes. A great radar signature of the mesocyclone but that is NOT a classic violent tornado signature that we usually find during tornado outbreaks. Still extremely dangerous straight line winds of 80+ mph possible in N-ern CT and a possible tornado could still touchdown at any moment.

Missing Sea Ice, AMEG and Transformational Leadership

This past June (2012) saw the largest Arctic sea ice loss since the inception of record keeping - 1.18 million square miles or the equivalent area of Alaska, California, Florida and Texas. The Arctic is now warming four times faster than the global mean temperature. According to NOAA, so far 2012 is the hottest year on record.

This is an epic planetary emergency linked to flooding in Europe, Japan and the Philippines, drought in the U.S. and intensifying storms that are now disrupting Earth's protective ozone shield. And at the end of the day, it's directly threatening global food security.

The Arctic Methane Emergency Group (AMEG) is comprised of renowned concerned scientists, engineers and citizens headquartered in London, England. They are alerting the world to rapid retreating Arctic sea ice and its dire consequences including the staggering projection in 2015 of the total and potentially irreversible collapse of the remaining Arctic sea ice volume. Most of the Arctic Ocean will be ice-free for six months of the year by 2020 if sea ice trends continue. AMEG has a plan to cool the Arctic but more about that later.

Of immediate concern is the plight of farmers across both the United States and Great Britain.

As the Arctic sea ice retreats and the Arctic warms, there is a dramatic effect on the weather, due to its disruption of jet streams. As the jet stream loops farther to the north over western United States about two thirds of the nation is currently enveloped in the worst drought in over a half century. Insurers are already expecting to double last year's record $10B in payouts. But vegetable farmers across drought-stricken America don't take insurance to cover them in case of drought or flooding. So this year has been particularly brutal on them. In addition, the extreme summer heat has dissuaded shoppers from visiting Farmer's Markets across the nation; attendance are off by as much as 50 percent.

A warming Arctic has caused the jet stream to meander south of the U.K. and eastern Europe resulting in abnormally cold and wet weather with flooding in many places. It has punished the farmers, badly. The lack of sunshine and waterlogged soil in Britain has decimated homegrown U.K. vegetables. Peas, usually available year round, are being flown in from Guatemala, carrots from South Africa, beans from Kenya, onions from New Zealand and Argentina and Vivaldi potatoes from Israel. And the price of U.K. fruit is set to soar as the worst summer heavy rains in 30 years prevented honeybees from pollinating apples, pears and plums. Moreover, U.K. honey is now in short supply and its price has substantially increased.

Irrespective of whether one lives in the U.K. or the U.S. consumers are facing escalating food costs. Some early estimates are already predicting a rise in the consumer price index of U.S. beef by as much as 5 percent.

It is crystal clear to those of us who have been following global warming for more than two decades that corporate leadership is of paramount importance to address this world issue, especially since there was lackluster political leadership from the recent UN Rio +20 Sustainability Summit.

Humans are exceptional problem solvers and make no mistake innovation is truly our best friend in the 21st century.

Sir Richard Branson is a tremendous example of a transformational leader who subscribes to the dictum: "You don't learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and falling over."

He fully grasps the magnitude of global warming and the challenge to obviate the pending energy crisis. In fact, Virgin is spending 100 percent of all profit from its airlines on developing plant-based jet fuels.

Sir Richard has likened the imminent threat of global warming to both World War I and World War II; it's a third war that our species can not loose. He founded and funded the Carbon War Room: 25 battles (each 1 billion tons of CO2) across 7 theaters.

His global reach has extended into energy efficiency programs, spending $100M in both Sacramento and Miami from a $650M fund he created - retrofitting buildings, installing solar and creating jobs. And there are 10 contenders vying for Virgin's Earth Prize of $25M. Those teams of scientists are working on a decade-long project to demonstrate the most viable solution of reducing greenhouse gases, globally.

Both Greenland and the Arctic are melting at a record-pace. We no longer have a decade to decide upon an action plan. Indecisive inaction is certainly not an option.

Millions of tons of methane (a potent heat trapping gas 72X stronger than CO2) are now being released from thawing sub-Arctic soils and bubbling from deposits melting beneath Arctic sea-beds.

AMEG scientists are proposing pumping seawater spray into the atmosphere from ships or islands in the North Atlantic to create massive white clouds, mimicking the missing white sea ice (which reflects incoming solar radiation) to help cool off our planet.

This is a crucial time in the history of our species. We need transformational leadership that embraces supposedly unachievable challenges and then rises above them - in order to obviate the unintended and unimaginable consequences of an ice-free North Pole. Link
